The conflict between motorists and cyclists never ends.

Every time it happens, a dashcam video emerges on the internet for us to spectate the drama between them. 

Here's one such video that occurred over the weekend.

Where?

The incident occurred at Kranji dam, along Kranji Way, which is a two-lane road. 

It seems as if Tour de Singapore is the favourite pastime of Singaporeans these days and it's commonplace to see big groups of cyclists on the road nowadays (as though the pandemic is already over).

Road regulation reminder for cyclists 

Cycling abreast is allowed, but only on roads with more than one lane in the same direction.

Below is an example where cyclists are allowed to cycle abreast.  1784917260_Screenshot2021-09-13at10_22_32AM.thumb.png.3523619985bca8ffdb961095a55f9195.png

In this case, cycling abreast is prohibited since Kranji Way is a two-lane road going in opposite directions.

Increasing the number of cyclists does not mean you can flout the regulations. Don't give me that 'strength in numbers' bull crap.

The Van Driver

The van driver was obviously feeling a tad bit frustrated from the road hogging of the entire kampong of cyclists. 

As such, he took matters into his own hands by crossing the double white lines to go against the traffic flow to dangerously overtake (but failed) the group of cyclists.

That's three offences committed within quick succession of one another – The perfect formula to getting your license suspended or revoked.

Straight facts. They are undoubtedly the cause of the incident.

Maybe next time the cyclist should 'ownself check ownself' before posting the video online.

Unpopular opinion edition. I guess you could say that...

    Honda Odyssey driver and taxi uncle stops in the middle of the road to exchange a series of glorious expletives

    There is a saying that goes like this: "If you are not angry when you drive, you are the one making others angry." It is true to a certain extent, except that it is more towards being annoyed than being angry. However, for this particular taxi driver, he may have taken that quote a bit too far.  Watch the video below to see how he expresses his anger towards a fellow motorist: Warning: The following video features plenty of Hokkien vulgarities, voice cracking and inaudible shouting. Watch it at your own risk! What Happened? The incident occurred along Jalan Sultan.  Apparently, the Honda Odyssey driver cut from the extreme left to the extreme right lane (taxi driver's lane) without checking and almost caused an accident.  The Honda driver's behaviour angered the taxi driver, which prompted the taxi driver to honk him.  Unhappy at being honked at, the Honda driver stopped in the middle of the road, impeding the path of the taxi driver.  Subsequently, both drivers alighted from their cars, and they began to exchange a series of glorious expletives.  Below is a brief and translated version of their confrontation:  A Mere Coincidence? IMO, the taxi driver ain't no angel either.  It feels as if he was out to pick a fight with the Honda Odyssey driver for cutting into his lane.  And somehow, there wasn't any footage of the Honda driver performing what the taxi driver claimed he did.  That's a bit too coincidental, isn't it? Netizens' Comments Seems like the taxi driver was seizing the opportunity to vent his frustration on the Honda Odyssey driver. Sorry, I snickered at this comment. @Honda Odyssey driver Pls upload your dashcam footage.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    This Hiace driver is a hero Singapore did not ask for but definitely a hero we need on our roads

    Not all heroes wear capes; some of them drive a Toyota Hiace. In this video, a cam car and a silver Hiace were waiting to turn right at a junction. As the green signal came on, both vehicles started to make their turns. A silver Prius suddenly charges straight through the junction out of the blue, clearly ignoring the red light signal on the road.  The front of the van almost swipes the side of the car as it rushes past both vehicles. Unimpressed, the cam car follows the silver vehicle and forms right behind it in the next junction. However, the van driver was not going down without a fight. As he reaches the same junction, he sticks to the left lane.  He then proceeds to charge towards the Prius, only to abruptly stop in front of it, narrowly missing it by an inch.  According to the cam car driver, the van driver confronted the other driver as he slowly straightened out his vehicle.  That ought to teach the Prius driver a lesson for beating the red light! Netizens' reactions He most definitely was not!  With the way this Prius drives, I wouldn't be surprised if there were more clowns like this on the streets of Singapore.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Taking safety for granted: Cyclist chiongs out of filter lane without checking for oncoming traffic

    To be honest with y'all, I have lost count on the number of blog articles that I wrote that involved obnoxious cyclists. Truth be told, I have always believed that not every cyclist on the road is an ill-mannered, road-senseless prick...until now. This video is why I have formally lost faith in cyclists in Singapore: What Happened? A Toyota Vios driver honked a cyclist at a filter lane for apparently 'chionging' out without checking for oncoming traffic. Unfortunately, the honk cannot be heard in the dashcam footage. Moments later, the cyclist rode up to the Toyota Vios at a red light to confront the driver.  Upon dismounting from his bicycle, a heated exchange ensued between the cyclist and the Toyota driver.  And yes, you won't be disappointed with the exchange; skip to 0:12 and 0:16 to hear the magical words! The Ultimate Black Sheep Of The Community This cyclist is the final evolution of cyclists, literally the worst type anyone can encounter. At 0:28, the cyclist blatantly disregarded his safety by 'chionging' out from a filter lane WITHOUT looking for oncoming traffic. At 1:50, the cyclist performed a sudden swerve in the last lane without checking for traffic, which could have caused a collision with the motorcyclist behind him.  And unsurprisingly, at 2:05, he decides to hog the last lane by choosing not to ride closest to the left-hand edge of the road, leaving the BMW driver be like: Popular Opinion Regardless, cyclists should not be on the road if he/they cannot accept being honked by other road users. After all, honking is not a tool used for scolding or berating others. Instead, it is meant to inform or alert others to avoid a potential accident.  Netizens' Comments This is what you get as a lack of accountability. 🤭 Especially those wearing green, pink and light blue.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    YP gets put in his place after driver reports his absurd behaviour to the police

    When life doesn't go our way, we have to suck it up and move on. Some of us, however, tend to go the other direction. A video of a young punk (YP) harassing a driver in a multi-storey carpark late at night has circulated on Facebook. The man who recorded the incident stated that he heard the YP shouting late at night while the driver honked at him to give way. In the video, a driver is trying to park his car in one of the lots. As he reverses, the YP waddles forward and blocks his path. He then madly waves at the driver and hits the bonnet of the car. Not wanting to confront the crazed punk, the driver remains seated in his vehicle.  After some time, the YP gets tired and sits at the side of the car. At this moment, the driver attempts to escape and drive off to a safe location. However, the YP immediately stands up and blocks the car while shouting at the driver. Slowly, the car inches forward as the driver attempts to drive away from this madness.  Not wanting the driver to leave, the YP continues to taunt him by blocking and leaning on the car's bonnet. Ten minutes later, police officers arrived on the scene after responding to the driver's call. I guess you could say that this YP won the battle but lost the war. Netizens' reactions Hello IMH, I think we found your missing patient.  In Singapore, harassment is a very serious offence and offenders will face a fine of up to $5,000, a jail term of up to 6 months, or both.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
