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.

This person needs to have a feel of metal hits body then he will see who is right or who has the right. There is a reason why cyclists are barred from riding on certain roads.

Rights on the road needs to be earned....what about having the cyclist go through the same qualification rigours the drivers and motorists went through and to pay road tax too. And get road insurance too. Den they can start saying they have rights to be on the road. They will need to hang their road cycling licence at the front and back of their bikes....so traffic police and lta can go after them too. If Govt find it too tedious to administer this... Just expand the left lane and make a bike lane for those jokers.

"ragrets" is an improper way to spell "regrets". It become a popular slang word after the movie 'We're the Millers' came out. Probably a Gen Z thing lol.

    Cyclist ushers lonely baby pangolin to safety

    A cyclist spots a baby pangolin on his usual trip and carefully ushers it to safety in a heartwarming video. On Tuesday evening (July 27), a cyclist was cycling along a dual carriageway when he noticed the baby animal trying to cross the road. Fearing for its safety, he decided to protect the pangolin by gently guiding it towards the kerb. The cyclist mentioned that he had to stop several fast-moving vehicles from turning the animal into roadkill, which earned him a medley of impatient honks. However, he was concerned about the pangolin and ignored the incessantly loud noises while escorting it. The little one did not seem to be very stable as it slowly waddled down the road and tripped over a drain cover.  Despite safely crossing two roads, the baby pangolin kept sticking to the roadside, forcing the cyclist to block its path with his bike so that it would climb up the kerb to safety.  In the end, he had to use the rims of his bicycle to lift the baby from the kerb onto the grass patches when he realised that the pangolin was unable to climb on its own. The video ends with the baby pangolin happily waddling away into the night. This serotonin-boosting video certainly made my day, I'm glad that the pangolin got away unharmed. Kudos to the cyclist for helping it get to safety!  What is a pangolin? According to the World Wildlife Fund, a pangolin, also known as a scaly anteater, is a primarily nocturnal mammal with a body full of scales. When startled, these animals will hide their heads and expose their scales to predators. If a predator touches their scales, the pangolin will roll up into a ball and use its tails to attack.  The most common species of pangolin found in Singapore is the Sunda pangolin (Malayan pangolin) and is commonly found in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. It is also the animal on various Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) donation boxes throughout Singapore. In 2008, the Sunda pangolin was listed as 'critically endangered' in the Singapore Red Data Book. While its main threat is the loss of its habitat due to rapid urbanisation and roadkill, a huge number of pangolins are poached globally for their meat and scales, which are believed to have medicinal value.  Due to its ability to only have 1 or 2 babies a year, the global pangolin population is unable to recover as quickly as it is depleting.  In 2017, the Wildlife Reserves Singapore launched the Sunda Pangolin National Conservation Strategy and Action Plan in conjunction with the Singapore Pangolin Working Group to promote the conservation of the animal and protect it from going extinct. Netizens' reactions What to do if you encounter a live pangolin? While it is rare to observe a live pangolin in the busier areas of Singapore, it is not impossible as they tend to wander into residential areas from the forest. If you ever encounter a pangolin, follow these guidelines provided by the National Parks Board: 1. Do not be alarmed as pangolins are shy animals and do not attack humans. 2. Do not touch, chase or corner them as they will be frightened by the approach. You are advised to leave them alone. 3. Observe them and share your findings with pangolin research and welfare groups online. 4. If necessary, you can contact NParks at 1800-471-3700 or the police for assistance.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Insanely reckless Nissan Sylphy tries to overtake oil tanker and causes chain collision

    A grey Nissan Sylphy attempted to recklessly overtake an oil tanker, which resulted in a chain collision accident along the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE). In the video, the oil tanker could be seen travelling on the second middle lane while the grey car (concealed by the tanker) was on the outermost left lane. Within seconds, the bonnet of the grey car could be seen as the driver attempts to shift into the second middle lane, despite being so close to the heavy-duty vehicle. As expected, the grey Sylphy ends up in a T-bone collision with the oil tanker, which then led to the car spinning and colliding with a yellow taxi in the middle lane. The impact of the crash threw the taxi off its lane and into the road divider, which led to a fourth hit as the camcar could not stop in time. The video ends with the grey Nissan hitting the yellow taxi a second time as it flies towards the road divider from the impact of the first hit with the oil tanker. This huge accident led to a closure of three lanes of the expressway and a 3-hour jam during the lunch peak period. Netizens' reactions From the comments, it's clear that what the grey Nissan did was insanely reckless and impulsive. TBH, I have no idea what the driver was thinking. In what scenario would overtaking an oil tanker be a good idea? Why would anyone even do that?   Another incident with the same driver A more recent video showed the same grey Nissan Sylphy blocking the road at a petrol station.  Despite the blurry footage, the grey car was identified to have the same license plate. According to the camcar driver, he was attempting to leave the petrol station when he saw the vehicle parked in the middle of the road.  After repeatedly honking, the driver noticed that the owner of the grey Nissan was actually at the ATM on the right. This inconsiderate behaviour is really infuriating to watch. First, he causes a chain collision on an expressway and now, he's parking his vehicle in the middle of the road for his own convenience?  ---  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!

    Caught an Audi A8 with zero road etiquette along Lower Delta Road

    I guess money can't buy proper road etiquette, can it? On 5th May 2021, a short video was posted on Facebook of an Audi A8 driver driving recklessly along Lower Delta Road. It's so bad that I even experienced some serious second-hand embarrassment from watching it.  For those of you who cannot stomach the video, I am going to provide a play-by-play description of the incident below. So, we start off with the camcar driver, who is innocently drives along the road and slows down when approaching a red light at a traffic junction. He stops behind a black Audi A8, which continues to inch forward past the white line with total disregard to the red light. The driver continues to try his luck and even attempts to turn right while there's traffic coming from both sides on the adjacent road. As if realising that there's no way the universe will let it turn right, the Audi suddenly reverses and almost hits the camcar.  Once the lights turn green, the Audi wastes no time zooming ahead without stopping at the right turn pocket. The driver positions the Audi dangerously near oncoming vehicles as if asking for an accident to happen.  The Audi edged so far into the lane with oncoming traffic that it even made a silver vehicle stop dead in its tracks to avoid a collision. To carry on forward, the silver car had to manoeuvre itself around the Audi in an awkward fashion. If you thought that was all, think again. There's more! When the Audi driver saw an empty pocket of space, it sped off to complete the right turn, but there were two oncoming vehicles that could have crashed into the Audi if they had gone any faster. Netizens quickly took to the comments to voice their opinions (with some speculating that the Audi driver is either drunk, high or does not have a driving license): Simplified translation: 'You have to wait for death if you want to reincarnate, what's the rush?' What do you guys think of this road menace?
