Suspected drunkard kicks driver's vehicle for nothing ūü§∑ūüŹľ‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹūü§®

Suspected drunkard kicks driver's vehicle for nothing ūü§∑ūüŹľ‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹūü§®



The driver was driving along Geylang Lorong 17 on Saturday night (June 26). He stopped at a crossing to let pedestrians cross the road when a middle-aged man suddenly walked up to his vehicle and gave it a hard kick.

In the video, the man can be heard engaging in a confrontation with the driver after kicking the vehicle. The driver even reverses the car to ask the man 'what the problem was'.

According to the driver, he had no relations with the man and that there was nothing before the incident that could have explained the unprovoked attack.

Drunk or Drugs?

Suspecting that he was either drunk or on drugs, the driver wanted to call the police on the spot, but he was faced with taunts from the man, who claimed that the police knew 'who he was'.

Towards the end of the video, as the driver can be heard angrily complaining to his passenger about the incident. 

Although he could not find the culprit afterwards, the driver stated that he has already made a police report regarding the incident and alerted other drivers who frequent the area as well.

Netizens' reactions

Many netizens managed to joke about the situation, with some encouraging the driver to leave the 'crazy' or 'drunk' man alone to prevent a bigger accident in the future. 




This is a pretty bizarre incident.

    Should cyclists be allowed on the road?

    The Year 2030¬† ‚Äú2030‚ÄĚ 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‚ÄĚ, 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 ‚ÄúTour De Singapore‚Ä̬†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¬†‚ÄĒ¬†Not all cyclists are the same.¬†¬†¬† Yes, they¬†are all¬†cyclists on the road¬†but their intention and¬†behaviour¬†are grossly¬†different.¬†¬† ‚ÄúTour De Singapore‚ÄĚ 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¬†‚ÄĒ¬†to complete their order in the fastest and most efficient way possible.¬†¬† And lastly, the final segment of cyclists¬†‚ÄĒ¬†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‚Äôs¬†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 ‚Äútrended‚ÄĚ 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. ‚ÄúPraise is fleeting, but brickbats we recall‚Ä̬† 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‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 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 ‚Äď 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.

    Driving School 101: Always check them blindspots before changing lanes

    A grey Honda Stream driver almost caused an unnecessary accident, by abruptly changing lanes without checking its blindspots. A Honda Stream driver that did a last-minute lane change, resulted in a near-miss with a motorcyclist.  Luckily for that ignorant driver, the motorcyclist’s defensive reaction kicked in, and he managed to perform an impressive evasive manoeuvre to avoid the Honda Stream.   Subsequently, the enraged motorcyclist rode alongside the Honda Stream to confront the driver but was shrugged off. Our road community could certainly do without entitled drivers who show blatant disregard for road safety.  #Respectforbikers  According to Singapore’s traffic rules, offenders will face a composition fine of $100 for their failure to signal. While offenders who drive without due care or reasonable consideration for other road users will face 9 demerit points and a composition fine of $300.  Netizens' Reaction Facts, facts, facts. Lesson learnt: Change starts from within. Let’s start inculcating a safer road culture for our fellow road users.    --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Injured cyclist's ghostly cries wakes up neighbourhood at 4 in the morning

    On Saturday (June 19), at around 4:17 a.m., a cyclist had gotten into an accident at Yio Chu Kang Link. His high-pitched wails could be heard throughout the entire neighbourhood. According to the person who had recorded the incident, the cyclist was first seen wailing by the roadside and clutching his leg in pain. A few minutes later, the wailing stopped and the cyclist was seen scolding the driver of a white car. Thinking that the cyclist had lost his leg or broke a bone, the man called for an ambulance while filming. When the paramedics arrived, he was relieved to see that the cyclist was able to stand on his own.  However, this led to more confusion as he was unsure of what the cyclist was crying over.  Netizens' reactions Once the video was posted, netizens quickly commented on the cyclist's ghostly cries, with some speculating that he could have been crying over the damage done to his bicycle.  TBH, it would be pretty scary to hear those cries at 4 in the morning. While the extent of the cyclist's injuries is still unknown, we hope that everything is alright and we wish him a speedy recovery!



    Two disgruntled motorists exchanging profanities again and again and again

    The video footage which is shown from the the perspective of the motorcyclist, shows the biker accelerating from a traffic junction and almost getting cut off by a red Mazda CX-5: This exchange between the motorists happened at the junction between Sumang Lane and Sumang Crescent. The motorcyclist was riding straight, albeit accelerating pretty quickly, when the Mazda CX-5 driver attempted to overtake him from the right.  Evidently, the CX-5 driver failed to form up correctly at the junction, and drove against road directions when he went straight ahead instead of turning right, as shown below: Source: Google Maps The exchange between them continued as they drove into the same multi-story carpark, even stopping for a moment to exchange profanities and showing the finger at each other: Here's a short transcript of their 5-sec verbal exchange: --- Driver: (gesturing and talking with a muffled voice) Motorcyclist: F*** you, don't know how to keep to your lane is it! F*** you! Driver: F*** you! --- Netizens made some comments on Youtube, with mentions that this is just a small issue, and that both of them had 'too much ego':
