An Audi A4 was seen recklessly cutting 2 lanes along Upper Bukit Timah Road on Wednesday (June 23), which resulted in the vehicle hitting a FoodPanda rider. 

According to the video, the black Audi A4 was cruising on the right of the camcar when it suddenly swerved towards the left, almost hitting a white Toyota van in the middle of the road. 

Upon collision, the FoodPanda rider and his motorcycle flew for a short distance before landing in front of a petrol station. 

It has been speculated by the video's description that the driver of the Audi A4 might have wanted to turn left but failed to form up in time, which resulted in the sudden swerve towards the left. 

Netizens' reactions

Many netizens were upset with the reckless driving behaviour of the Audi A4, which could have prevented the accident if the driver had properly planned his route and was more aware of his surroundings.

While we are unsure of the FoodPanda rider's condition at the moment, we wish him a speedy recovery and hope that all drivers will pay more attention when they're on the roads.

    Should cyclists be allowed on the road?

    The Year 2030  “2030” is a synonymous year for all matters environmental-related. If you have read my previous article, "2030 might be the end of the world for car enthusiasts and the sports cars they love”, you would be familiar with the Singapore Green Plan 2030 (SGP 2030). If you have not, feel free to read it: In addition to phasing out Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles and encouraging the adoption of Electric Vehicles (EV), the government is also promoting sustainable living by encouraging cycling as a mode of transport.    The government has set a target to triple cycling paths from 460km to 1,320km by 2030, hoping that this network would provide cyclists with a safe and comfortable journey within and between various towns in Singapore.    Cycling in Singapore  In recent years, the uptake of cycling as a leisure activity and a mode of transport has sharply increased. This is evident from the increased sighting of cycling enthusiasts, otherwise known as “Tour De Singapore” cyclists and food delivery riders alike.    Furthermore, the banning of Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs) on roads as of 3rd April 2020 has also incited users to switch to bicycles or Power-Assisted Bicycles (PABs), which also contributed to the increase of cyclists.  The Cyclist Segmentation  I learned something rather intriguing yet insightful — Not all cyclists are the same.    Yes, they are all cyclists on the road but their intention and behaviour are grossly different.   “Tour De Singapore” cyclists are those that cycle to maintain an active lifestyle, which can be for leisure purposes or as a mode of transport. More often than not, this segment of cyclists will be riding on their road bikes which can easily hit 20km/h or faster. Their key objective includes clocking in a certain distance during their session (Eg. 20km), completing an entire cycling route (Eg. SG round island route, Marina Bay Loop) or even hitting a personal best for their cycling speed.  Conversely, the key objective for food delivery riders is pretty straightforward — to complete their order in the fastest and most efficient way possible.   And lastly, the final segment of cyclists — Young Punks (YPs) and their fixed-gear bicycles. Frankly, I have no clue as to why they are even on the road. This group of cyclists definitely do not deserve to be on the road, as their bicycles do not even have brakes equipped. These YPs lack the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as helmets to make things worse.    Why Cycle On The Road?  From my understanding, there are two main but non-exhaustive reasons why cyclists prefer riding on the road:   Cycling on the road is smoother, as compared to cycling on pavements.   Certain bicycles, such as road bikes, are made to travel fast. Therefore, cycling on pavements or park connectors are unsuitable due to their speed limit restrictions of 10km/h and 25km/h, respectively.  The Black Sheep  They are everywhere. There is almost no escape from encountering these black sheep from the cycling community.    The list of black sheep curated on MyCarForum’s Blog category is sufficient to explain the point I am trying to bring across. Just take a look below:  Notice how all these incidents took place while the cyclist was riding on the road? MMMM...  If you wish to see more instances of black sheep from the cycling community, do a simple search in the search bar of MyCarForum (Refer below).  With the anonymous identity of these black sheep, there is almost no way they can be held accountable for committing traffic offences. The most that could happen to them is getting caught in the act by the police/LTA or being “trended” from online dashcam submissions of these black sheep. Otherwise, they will probably get off scot-free.    In most vehicle-cyclist accidents, the driver would be penalised regardless of who is at fault. However, there are certain occurrences (Refer below) where the errant cyclist is penalised for his wrongdoing.    Despite not being penalised, the driver remains the ultimate loser as the cost of repairing the damaged vehicle will remain borne by him. This frustration undoubtedly creates a sense of anguish and helplessness among drivers whenever a cyclist flouts traffic rules. “Praise is fleeting, but brickbats we recall”  Unfortunately for the cycling community, the presence of black sheep across the various segments has created a typical stereotype on cyclists regardless if they are responsible road users or not.    Sadly, the notorious reputation of cyclists is so deeply ingrained in the public’s perception that it may no longer be possible to remove that stereotypical notion.   For every kind act performed by a cyclist, there are always many others whose actions serve as a disservice to the cycling community. After all, it is in human nature that we remember the wrongs as compared to the rights.  According to the Road Traffic (Bicycles) Rules under the Road Traffic Act (Chapter 276, Section 140), cyclists should practice the following while riding on roads:  Ensure bicycles are equipped with working and functional brakes.   Wearing a suitable protective bicycle helmet securely while cycling.  Using hand signal to inform traffic of the cyclist’s intention (Eg. To stop, slow down, proceed left/right)   Travel in a single file at all times. Unless on a lane with two or more lanes (in the same direction), travelling abreast is allowed.    Cycle as near as possible to the left of the road.   Cycle in an orderly and safe manner and obey the flow of traffic.   If cycling during hours of darkness (7 pm – 7 am), your bicycle must be equipped with appropriate lighting at the front and rear.  In other words, unless the cyclist is an individual with traffic knowledge (driving/riding license) and can ADHERE STRICTLY to the Road Traffic (Bicycles) Rules under the Road Traffic Act (Chapter 276, Section 140), cyclists should be OFF our roads entirely.   If you are interested, feel free to read the online copy of the Road Traffic (Bicycles) Rules under the Road Traffic Act here: https://sso.agc.gov.sg/SL/RTA1961-R3#pr5-.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Multiple cars involved in a bizarre accident along Lornie Road

    TL;DR – A Honda Vezel, Mazda 5 and Nissan Note get involved in an accident with multiple public properties damaged   A video of an accident uploaded on Instagram caught my attention today. In it, we find a white Honda Vezel, a brown Mazda 5 and a white Nissan Note involved in an accident. Here’s the video 22-second video for your viewing pleasure. Here’s more footage of the accident (at a different angle)   Disclaimer The white Vezel might or might not be involved in this accident, or the driver might be a good Samaritan who parked at the side to help the occupants of the front two cars. Damage to public property I count a signboard, a lamppost, a tree and a section of the railings. It looks like it’s going to be an expensive affair for whoever was at fault. That’s weird The biggest question after watching the video – “How did the Note end up on the railings?” Online chatter   I legit think this is funny Spread my wings and fly away   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Why did this Hiace driver jam on the brakes right before the ERP gantry?

    No one likes to pay for Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges, and sometimes it's funny to see how a simple system that helps regulate traffic flow has the potential to cause so much frustration for people like this Hiace driver. Watch the video here:  This incident occurred at ERP 42 on the slip road from the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) to the Central Expressway (CTE). What happened? As the cam car approaches the slip road towards an ERP gantry, a Toyota Hiace can be seen hitting his brakes abruptly before coming to a halt just before the gantry.  This dangerous action from the Hiace driver caused the cam car to react with an emergency brake as well.  Shortly after, the Hiace driver turns on his hazard light. The cam car proceeds to overtake the Hiace and carry on with his journey, only for the Hiace driver to drive off.   Possibilities At first glance, it seems as though the Hiace driver was attempting to avoid ERP payment by waiting for the ERP timer to end.  However, a closer look at the ERP timing disregards the initial intent of the Hiace driver's action. Instead, it is highly likely that the Hiace driver either forgot to insert his stored-value card, or he was swapping an insufficient stored-value card with one that has sufficient value into his IU. Nevertheless, actions like this should not be condoned.  Just pay the $10 fine or "administrative fee" and take it as a lesson learnt.  Netizens' comments Modern problems require modern solutions 😎 Do or die, Hiace driver gonna get slapped with a fine.  Hold up...This man has got a valid point right here.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Cyclists in two separate videos disregard the red light and experience instant ragret

    Within the past 24 hours, two unrelated cases of vehicles knocking over cyclists have surfaced on Facebook. The only thing constant in the equation? Both cyclists disregarded the red man and cycled across the road anyway. Both incidents took place yesterday (July 5), with the first one being at Choa Chu Kang and the second one at Sembawang. In the first video, a female driver was driving straight ahead across a road junction along Choa Chu Kang Dr after noticing that the light had turned green. However, she noticed that a cyclist had dashed out as she was accelerating, which led to her hitting the cyclist.   Take note: there is loud screaming and graphic content in the following videos.  In the second video, a taxi was seen performing a right turn at a road junction in between Sembawang and Mandai Road when it hits a cyclist that was crossing the road at a red light.  Despite the roads being busy in both videos, the cyclists thought that they were able to beat the red light and just YOLO-ed their way through. Honestly, if I were them, I would be in constant "ragret" over this one stupid decision.  Netizens' reactions It didn't take long for netizens to express their sentiments with regard to both incidents. As for the taxi driver (in the second video), many netizens shared their frustrations with the cyclist for not following the rules. We hope that all parties involved in both accidents are okay and will post any further updates if necessary.    --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
