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.

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.

So what happened next? Somebody called the police?

Cyclist just get away with a crocked front wheel?

It is not fair to other drivers/riders of other vehicles. They play by the rules. Such cyclist dont. Not even an apology from their recklessness.

    Lorry goes full throttle to beat a red light, only to collide head-on into the side of a taxi

    Cross-junctions have and always will be a dangerous section of any road. It is essentially an intersection with the most concentrated traffic, which poses additional hazards to road users. One such hazard is being a victim to vehicles that beat the red light, such as this one: What Happened? This unfortunate accident took place at a cross-junction along Boon Lay Drive.  Firstly, let's take a look at an overview of the location below: Upon the green light signal, a ComfortDelgro taxi on the left lane, intending to travel straight, gradually approached the junction.  Just then, a lorry from the right beat the red light and smashed head-first into the driver-side of the taxi. The lorry was travelling at a relatively fast speed as it seemed to have gone full-throttle and accelerated in an attempt to beat the red light "successfully".  NGL, the impact of the collision was a rather strong one. Both vehicles came to a complete halt moments later, after striking a kerb.  A Sitting Duck The taxi was essentially a sitting duck that had no way of mitigating the danger posed by the oncoming lorry.  Despite the traffic signal that indicated it was clear for the taxi to proceed, its view of the oncoming lorry was completely obstructed by another lorry on the discretionary right turn lane beside it.  Be it to perform an emergency brake or swerve; it was almost impossible for any driver to have responded in such a situation. Here's wishing the taxi driver and all those involved in the accident a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments GWS😰 Tell me about it. Especially all those commercial driving on lane 1 of the expressways🙄 The last time I checked, being a victim of an accident is not a good thing.

    Toyota Prius Lalamove driver changes lane abruptly, opens the door and flips the bird at cam car

    TL;DR – A stationary Prius at a set of traffic lights in Woodlands suddenly changes to the right lane. The driver then opens his door to reveal a phone in his hand and points the middle finger at cam car.   What bizarre behaviour Watch this minute-long video to understand just how bizarre. The exciting bits are in the first 12-seconds (if you have no time to watch the whole thing). Did you spot something? But, because he decided to do something so foolish, cam car caught something interesting. This mofo was using his handphone while driving! Watched the whole video? Naturally, I watched the whole video to see if cam car had done something to ignite the hellfire within the Prius driver. But, there was nothing to support that fact. Cam car did not even sound the horn when the incident occurred. Online Chatter Not just Lalamove. BlueXX also.     --------- Witnessed an accident?

    Tesla proves its brilliance yet again by capturing the culprits who damage it (IN HIGH DEFINITION)

    Time after time, Tesla's disruptive technology has proved its prowess as a major player in the automotive industry. Its unique surveillance feature dubbed the "sentry mode" has assisted in identifying hit and run culprits, as well as the multiple arrests of thieves and vandals abroad. Despite the low crime rate on our sunny island, this unique Tesla feature is not entirely rendered useless.  Watch this video to find out why: What Happened? This incident took place at the carpark of Paragon Shopping Centre. An Audi Q7 SUV decided to park at an adjacent lot next to a Tesla Model 3 (Cam car). Upon parking, a passenger of the Audi Q7 appeared to be struggling to open its door. After some effort, the passenger managed to fully open the door, resulting in the door slamming right into the body of the parked Tesla Model 3.  The driver, along with his two passengers (possibly his son and daughter), proceeded to alight from the Audi Q7.  Subsequently, the two kids touched the Tesla Model 3 for no reason, possibly due to their "itchy hands".  It is stuff like that that really grinds my gears, especially when your car is all clean and fresh from grooming.  Thank You, Elon! Apparently, the Tesla Model 3 got dinged pretty hard, leaving some visible damage.  If not for Elon Musk, this whole incident might have gone with the wind.  NGL, Tesla's sentry feature is pretty sick.  Not only is it a vehicle that transports you from Point A to B, but it serves as a surveillance platform too! This innovative feature is sure to evolve and expand the future development of dashcams (10/10 would get it for my car if it is available on the market). Netizens' Comments People damage your property bought by your hard-earned money, you shiok? Just use child lock and open the door for them. It is a win-win situation whereby it is safer for them + no dinging of other people's cars. Pretty amazed at how you waited for them to return and ask them for damages. So did you get what you asked for? 🙋‍♂️ 🙋‍♂️ 🙋‍♂️     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    This Hyundai driver's sluggish lane change caused an unnecessary chain collision

    As drivers, I am sure we have met our fair share of annoying drivers on the road who switches between lanes either without due care or simply because of their indecisiveness.  Here's a perfect example of an annoying driver that falls in both of these categories: Where And Who Were Involved? The accident happened along Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, just across Townsville Primary School.  In total, two cars (a BMW X5 and a Hyundai Avante) and one motorcycle were involved in the accident.  What Happened? Initially, the Hyundai Avante was travelling on the left-turn only lane. It then changed to the next lane, to be positioned right in front of the cam car.  Wanting to filter left towards Bishan Road, the Hyundai driver decided to change back to the left-turn only lane after several cars passed by it. For unknown reasons, the Hyundai driver took his own sweet time to complete his lane change, and this was where tragedy struck.  The BMW X5 who was travelling at a relatively fast speed, could not stop in time, causing it to smash into the side of the Hyundai Avante.  Following this, a motorcycle travelling directly behind the BMW X5 also could not react in time, causing it to smash headfirst into the rear of the BMW SUV, literally. Looking at the image above, can I say that all the lane switching involved was entirely uncalled for? Regardless of which lane the Hyundai was in, he could eventually turn left if he had the patience. Kudos To The Biker Bro Despite receiving the brunt of the impact from rear-ending the BMW, the motorcyclist made an effort to check on the other parties involved in the chain collision. Good on him for that! Who's At Fault? This accident will undoubtedly pose a challenging case for the insurance companies involved to determine the party/parties at fault.  Reading the comments, the public had mixed opinions on the party at fault, which included: (a) The Hyundai was at fault;  (b) The BMW was at fault; (c) Both the Hyundai and BMW were at fault; and (d) All parties involved were at fault. What do you think? All matters aside, regardless of who is at fault, I wish all the parties involved a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments This stereotyping is somehow relatable. Let this be a lesson learned.  What a troll!     ========= Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
