Lane-splitting between two vehicles? Don't be like this biker with no common sense

Lane-splitting between two vehicles? Don't be like this biker with no common sense

For the uninitiated, you may be wondering why do riders practice lane-splitting?

Well, at least according to riders, lane-splitting is a safer way of riding. 

However, what many riders are unaware of is that lane-splitting is only safer if performed PRUDENTLY.

Watch this video to see how this rider's practice of lane-splitting put himself in great danger:

Notoriously Narrow Lanes

This incident occurred along the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) towards Seletar Expressway (SLE).

We are all aware of how narrow the two lanes are for all those who have travelled along the bend featured in the video. 

Furthermore, the high heavy vehicle traffic along this route makes it even more hazardous to navigate around this bend. 

As such, motorists often practice extra caution when travelling along this route. 

What happened?

Within seconds of the video, a motorcyclist is seen riding in between slow-moving vehicles.

While in between 2 vehicles, the rider seemed to have panic-braked due to his inability to squeeze through successfully. 

This resulted in the rider losing control of his motorcycle and hitting both vehicles to his side.

Fortunately for the rider, he managed to avoid being involved in a potential freak accident.

I hope this serves as a learning opportunity for ALL RIDERS to practice lane-splitting PRUDENTLY, no matter how experienced one is.

This accident could have been avoided entirely.

Common sense ain't that common after all.

Really no brain this biker. There are 3 factors already determine that it is not ideal to ride split lanes.

1) Narrow lanes. (Obviously can see.)

2) This is a bend. (Different drivers, different size of vehicles will turn differently, and might not be able to maintain properly in the lane when negotiating a bend like this.)

3) One of the two is a heavy vehicle. Even regardless of the size, the first two factors already determine is not safe to split lanes.

IKR, these 3 factors already serve as a compelling reason NOT to lane-split. This is beyond stupidity.

    Nonchalant cyclist casually picks up fallen plastic bags after ignoring red light and causing an accident with a motorcycle

    Only someone as carefree as this cyclist would care about his plastic bags after getting hit by a motorcycle.     The video starts with the cam car slowing down at a junction in Jurong West.  As his car comes to a stop, he notices a cyclist ignoring the red-light signal and crossing the junction. At the same time, a motorcyclist enters from the right at a high speed. Unable to stop his bike or swerve to avoid him, the motorcyclist knocks over the cyclist and falls to the ground. Unfazed by the accident, the cyclist immediately rises and gathers the grocery bags that had fallen off his bicycle. The motorcyclist gets up soon after and dusts himself off. Weirdly enough, the cyclist's reaction to this accident reminds me of this gif of Jimmy Fallon. I don’t know if I should be shocked or relieved. On the one hand, I'm glad that both parties are not severely hurt, but on the other, what exactly is the cyclist thinking? No matter how empty a road might seem, it is never a good decision to run a red-light signal and assume that the road will stay clear for you. Netizens’ reactions I agree! However, no matter how strict we enforce our regulations, there are always that few individuals who would go above and beyond on the roads just to do things for their own convenience. 😂😂 As much as I hate additional fines, I do think the root of the problem is the fact that most road users think it's okay to jaywalk (or jaycycle) if they do it quickly and with the right timing. Cyclists (and other pedestrians) who insist on crossing these junctions under these circumstances will be found guilty of jaywalking/cycling and be fined up to $1,000 or jailed up to 3 months.      -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    'Tour de Singapore' takes up an entire lane on a two-lane road, preventing vehicles from overtaking

    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.   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.  Netizens' Comments 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...     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Mercedes driver caught red handed committing a hit and run in broad daylight

    With almost every car equipped with a dashcam and the abundance of LTA/TP cameras, it would be silly for anyone to commit a hit and run since the chances of getting caught would be pretty damn high.  Watch how this Mercedes driver commits a hit and run in broad daylight in front of numerous witnesses:  What happened? The hit and run incident occurred along Loyang Avenue, involving a Mercedes-Benz CLC180 and a Honda City.  The Mercedes-Benz allegedly rear-ended the Honda City and tried to escape from the scene of the accident.  As a result of the accident, pieces of debris were scattered along the accident lane.  Karma Strikes Just as the Honda City driver alights to exchange relevant information, the Mercedes-Benz abruptly swerves around him to escape from the accident scene.  However, only to come face-to-face with a red light signal, leaving him with no choice but to stop at the junction.  The Honda driver quickly catches up to the Mercedes to get him to alight and assist in the accident but to no avail.  Instead, the Mercedes driver blatantly ignores him and drives off upon the traffic light turning green.  NGL, it takes hell a lot of guts and ignorance to pull off a stunt as the Mercedes driver did.  Dashcams, Dashcams And More Dashcams As I previously mentioned about getting caught on dashcams, and lo and behold, the dashcam footage surfaces on the internet. With the surfacing of this dashcam footage, I hope the Honda driver successfully claims against the Mercedes driver. Likewise, the Mercedes driver should be taken to task for his hit and run act.  You can run, but you can't hide.  Netizens' Comments That is if he gets sentenced to prison... 100% agreed. If not he wouldn't have escaped given his "second chance" at the red light. Can start by buying a concession pass already.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Driver vs driver in epic shouting match on the road

    Watch as these two drivers demonstrate their lack of basic driving etiquette in an epic shouting match on the road. What else can you expect from two angsty uncles on the road?  In this comical video, two drivers are seen engaging in a feisty shouting match with their vehicles still running on the road.  With their windows down, both men angrily hurl intense vulgarities and aggressive gestures. Aside from the extensive range of Hokkien vocabulary, it is hard to comprehend what both drivers are yelling to each other. As the fight continues, the camcar inches forward, which indicates that both parties are probably waiting at a junction.  Even as other cars start to move off, these two drivers never fail to maintain the intensity of the fight as they take turns creeping forward. Netizens' reactions Do you see the resemblance too? It would explain the foul temper of both drivers 😂 Aggressively sending their regards, if you ask me.  While I do like to watch videos of drivers getting into fights over nothing, it is not proper to road rage or to block the flow of traffic just to get a few vulgarities out. After all, what do these drivers gain besides infamy?   -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
