Red light stop, green light go: These two cyclists won't even make it past the first round of The Squid Game

Red light stop, green light go: These two cyclists won't even make it past the first round of The Squid Game

The age-old, pressing issue of Motorists vs Cyclists never seem to cease.

The influx of interest in cycling resulted in many people adopting cycling as a mode of transport.

Coupled with the lack of awareness and education of road safety, and knowledge, potential issues among cyclists themselves will inevitably arise.

Take a look at this short clip:

What Happened? 

This incident happened at Punggol Central.

Although it was a red light signal for pedestrians, two cyclists flout traffic rules and blatantly cycle across a pedestrian crossing.

Despite knowing that the camcar was about to perform a discretionary turn, these errant cyclists still decided to perform this absurd and dangerous act.

The two cyclists ended up almost colliding with each other, causing the elderly cyclist to fall.

They obviously have no regard for safety rules, lest their safety. 

From their actions, I am certain that it is not their first time flouting red light signals or traffic rules in general as cyclists.

Is it really worth endangering your life over that mere seconds spent waiting for the light to turn green?

Red Light Go, Green Light Stop

Familiar with the latest Netflix craze – Squid Game? 

If you are, then you must be familiar with the first game: Red Light, Green Light.

If you aren't, read more about the game below:

Quote

In "Red Light, Green Light", players must race to a finish line.

When given the "red light", players must come to a complete stop and run to the finish line when given the "green light".

During which, a giant and creepy mannequin will be monitoring players during the "red light" phase.

Players will be shot to death with a rifle if the mannequin spots a movement made by the player.

Well, I am 101% certain these two cyclists won't make it past Game #1 of the Squid Games. 

Newly Recommended Road Cycling Rules

Just last week, a government panel – The Active Mobility Advisory Panel (AMAP), proposed a set of recommendations to review regulations to enhance road safety. 

Quote

A summary of the proposed recommendations:

  1. To continue allowing cyclists to ride abreast in a maximum of 2 on roads with two or more lanes. 
  2. Introduce a rule for on-road cycling groups, for them to limit their group length to 5 bicycles. Essentially, this means a limit of five cyclists in a single file or ten cyclists when riding abreast.  
  3. Introduce a guideline to ensure a safe distance of 2 lamp posts (30 metres) between riding groups. 
  4. Introduce a guideline in the Highway Code and driving test handbooks that require motorists to have a minimum passing distance of 1.5 metres when passing cyclists.  
  5. Highly encourage cyclists to sign up for third-party liability insurance. When involved in an accident, third-party insurance will compensate for victims and protect cyclists from potentially expensive claims.

Considering this incident, would it be wise for cyclists to practice a safe passing distance as well? Would third-party insurance be effective at all?

I will let you be the judge of the newly proposed recommendations' effectiveness.

You sohai, it's sohai.

It's hard to advocate a safe road culture for all when such errant riders have minimal regard for their personal safety.

LOL.

    Mitsubishi Evo 10 performs a timely pop and bang which literally smoked a salty cam car driver

    In the public's eyes, most often confuse/label Japanese sports cars as an 'Ah beng' car or an ordinary car that has been 'zhng-ed'. In Singapore, it is common for these cars to get hated by the public. Here's one such example: What Happened? In a user-submitted video, the driver/passenger of the cam car can be heard making some remarks about the blue Mitsubishi Evolution X in front of it. The remarks included a sarcastic attempt to mimic the Evo X's noise. Moments later, as the Evo X enters an expressway, it performs a quick launch, resulting in pops and bangs. Thick black smoke and flames could also be seen shooting out of its exhaust.  I must say that the 'smokescreen' was a rather timely response to the complaints coming from the cam car.  Illegally Modified? This might be the first question that pops into your mind for the uninitiated. However, the black smoke, flames, pops and bangs produced from the Mitsubishi Evolution X are due to the anti-lag system installed in the car.  Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the Mitsubishi Evolution X was illegally modified. However, there is still a chance that the car is 'illegally modified' if LTA thoroughly inspects the car.  For all you know, it could be labelled as 'illegally modified' due to heavily tinted windows.  Netizens' Comments Must be because cam car's first time experiencing pops and bangs.  NGL, Evo X is a nice car😍 Every day we learn something new.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Cam car accelerates to prevent a Forester from merging into the expressway, rear ends a lorry instead

    Are you familiar with those 'guai lan' drivers that speed up to prevent you from changing lanes or merging by blocking you on purpose? I swear this type of driver infuriates me. Watch this video and witness an 'instant karma' moment for one such driver: What Happened? The accident occurred along the Seletar Expressway (SLE). The cam vehicle was travelling on lane 3, the left-most lane of SLE.  Despite a white Subaru Forester attempting to merge into SLE, the cam vehicle decided not to give a hoot about the white SUV and continued travelling alongside it. As the Subaru driver sped up to merge in front of the cam vehicle, the cam vehicle 'coincidentally' accelerated too. This manoeuvre by the cam vehicle prevented the Subaru SUV from merging into the SLE and forced the SUV to drive on the road shoulder before merging onto the SLE. Instant Karma in 3, 2, 1... After witnessing the Subaru's alarming actions, the lorry in front of the cam vehicle panic-braked in a moment of folly.  As a result, the cam vehicle could not react in time and ended up 'kissing' the back of the lorry.  If you consider the height and angle of the dashcam, the cam vehicle is likely to be a commercial vehicle. Therefore, I highly question the actions of the cam vehicle. Is there a need to be so 'guai lan'??? Look what it got you - Your just desserts. Oh, don't forget those repair fees and demerit points as well! Netizens' Comments Cam vehicle driver post online to show it's the Subaru's fault due to it driving on the road shoulder and its tinted tail lights😰 What a way to start the new year!

    PSA: Walking under automated carpark gantries may cause injury (unless you're Usain Bolt)

    While Singaporeans were celebrating Halloween with cute costumes and fancy decorations on the 31st, one man suffered a painful consequence when he decided to cross under the arm of an automated carpark gantry. In this short video, a cam car exits an open-air carpark when he stops to let a pedestrian cross the road. Thinking he could make it, the man hurriedly jogs across and attempts to leave the carpark by going under the automated arm of the carpark gantry. To his dismay, the arm quickly swings down and hits him squarely on the head. Upon witnessing this incident, the cam car driver lets out a loud cackle as he moves forward to exit. The poor pedestrian could be seen rubbing the top of his head as he runs off in embarrassment. Don't try this if you're not Usain Bolt, the fastest man on Earth.  Netizens’ reactions While most netizens found the incident rather funny, some found the cam car driver's reaction to being a little too insensitive.  It's always sad to lose a couple of braincells, but at least it's nothing serious.     -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    This near-miss accident at Yishun Dam seems like a scene from Final Destination

    Yishun Dam is a well-known spot for two things - a scenic place to 'lepak' and an accident hotspot. Watch a near-miss freak accident caught on dashcam here: What Happened? It was any other usual day for the cam car, cruising along lane 1 of Yishun Dam towards Yishun Ave 1. A black lorry from the opposite direction mounted the kerb out of the blue. As a result, it almost caused a head-on collision with the Lexus in front of the cam car. At this juncture, both the quick-thinking Lexus driver and cam car performed a sudden evasive manoeuvre to avoid getting swiped by the lorry.  However, in the process, the Lexus driver seems to have contacted the motorcycle on its left. From the footage, it is not clear if the lorry managed to dismount the kerb on its own afterwards.  Netizens' Comments Undeniably true. NGL the Lexus driver does have a splendid reaction time 👏 MMMM...interesting theory. I must admit that this has never crossed my mind. What do y'all think?🤔     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
