Van driver bullies a foreign cyclist by impeding his path and splashing water on him when confronted

Van driver bullies a foreign cyclist by impeding his path and splashing water on him when confronted

TL:DR – A van driver displays the ugly side of humanity and intentionally cuts a cyclist’s path. When the cyclist confronts the driver, the driver threatens to call the police, makes snide remarks about the cyclist’s visa (he’s a foreigner) and even splashes water on him.

 

While we usually see stories on MyCarForum about errant cyclists, today happens to be slightly different.

Today, we watch the ugly side of humanity displayed by a ‘guai lan’ van driver who needs to get beat up.

Watch this 5-min long video to understand why. The audio is a little out of sync though.

What led to this confrontation?

Yes, the exciting bits are at the start of the video. However, if you watch the whole video, the trigger was when the van driver overtook the bicycle and swerved into its path without adhering to the 1.5m safety distancing rule.

Clearly. the driver had no intention to let the cyclist through.

Road bullying at its worst

If that wasn’t enough, the driver even threatened the foreign cyclist. Here are some quotes from the conversation

Quote

“Call the police”

Quote

“You’ll lose your visa later”

The driver even splashes two bottles of liquid on the cyclist.

Disgraceful and disgusting behaviour.

Hmm.. your friend who ride shotgun with you may not be your friend. Case in point. The passager who uploaded this video has a unbias view. 

That the extend of my observation.

Is the TP investigating?

Looks like a shouting match between 2 idiots.

TP dont want to add a 3 player to referred 2 idiots. Waste of tax payer money.

As long as no injury, need to take a magistrate compliant or rather mediation First.

As we all know, this is not kindergarten with the children been summon to the teachers room.

LTA should brief all commercial vehicles on the new rules.....

Don't think they have much time to read the updated rules after all the deliveries.

    Indecisive Tesla driver proves that driving a smart car does not make you a smart driver

    This driver puts the Tesla Model 3 to shame after he misses his turn on the expressway.   In the video, a fellow driver was travelling on the expressway when he noticed the white Tesla tailgating the car in front of it. For those who are unable to identify the Tesla, here it is! As the cam car driver remains on the left lane, the driver of the Tesla immediately brakes to avoid following the turn on the right lane. The driver then signals left and attempts to squeeze himself onto the left lane at the very last second but fails as his $120,000 vehicle almost hits the expressway barrier.  The cam car driver presses on his horn to alert him of his presence. The embarrassed driver quickly drives off with no other way to get onto the right lane. Was the driver on autopilot mode? According to Tesla, its advanced safety and convenience features are designed to assist the driver with the most burdensome parts of driving (whatever that means). Over time, the brand will introduce new features and improve existing functionality into its Autopilot mode. This is to make the car safer and more capable. Currently, Tesla’s Autopilot allows drivers to steer, accelerate and brake automatically within its lane. Drivers can follow navigation suggestions to optimise their routes, which will lead the vehicle to automatically steer towards highway interchanges and exits based on its destination. However, Tesla has started that active driver supervision is still required and the Autopilot function does not make the car 100% autonomous. While it is hard to discern if the driver was really on Autopilot (or just plain distracted/indecisive), it is always essential to learn how to properly form up and know the routes that one intends to take.  Even the smartest car in the world can’t save a ‘blur’ driver. Netizens’ reactions I honestly think that cutting through at the last second is not the smartest move 😅 It looks like this car is quite well known in that area 👀 👍👍     ========= Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    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

    Sleepy or drunk? Volkswagen Jetta driver slides across 3 lanes and hits truck on AYE

    While we don’t know what type of influence the driver was under in this accident, it definitely was not a good one. At around 8pm on Saturday (Jan 15), a driver spotted a Volkswagen Jetta driving diagonally in its lane on the AYE. Situated on the right lane, the silver car struggles to maintain its position in the middle of the lane. The vehicle veers slightly to the right now and then, with the driver attempting to correct its direction. Seconds later, disaster strikes as the Jetta veers too far to the right, hitting the road divider of the expressway. The impact of the hit sends the car flying forward, pushing it in the opposite direction. The car flies across 3 lanes and makes its second hit with a large white truck. Both vehicles come to an immediate stop in the middle of the expressway as the cam car drives away. What happened? While there has not been a statement on what happened with the Jetta driver, netizens were quick to offer up their theories. #1: Driver was sleepy The most popular theory was that the driver was too sleepy. Netizens had noted that right before the incident, the car was already constantly veering towards the right of the lane. This could signify that the driver could have been falling asleep at the wheel. Some even shared their personal experiences and anecdotes about driving while being exhausted (which is not something you should do!). #2: Driver was drunk The second theory was that the driver could have been drinking before this incident. Again, netizens related the shaky driving before the incident to the influence of alcohol. They reasoned that there was no way a driver would drive in the first lane if he knew that he was tired beforehand. On the other hand, if one had been drinking, the driver could still take the first lane if he felt fine (despite his judgment being impaired). #3: Driver was distracted The last theory was that the driver could have been distracted by his phone. In this scenario, it would make sense that the Jetta was driving in the first lane as the driver was physically okay. He could have been answering a call or texting – something that some of us are guilty of doing when we are on the expressway. While we don’t know for sure which of these theories are true, the fact is that a driver should not be on the road if he is exhausted or has been drinking.

    GetGo driver with zero skills skids on an empty, straight road, collides into a motorcyclist and runs away

    Car-sharing is an undeniably innovative and affordable way for the public to access a car.   In the wrong hands, car-sharing can be a double-edged sword, capable of posing a hazard to other road users. *Pretty sure we are all familiar with drivers of a small, white car on lane 1 of the expressway, driving with its high beam on and tailgating others👀* Watch this video to find out how car-sharing can be a deadly hazard to other road users when driven by irresponsible pricks:   What Happened? This incident occurred along Bartley Viaduct, in the direction of Bartley Road East.  The traffic on the stretch of road was absolutely clear, apart from a GetGo Car (Mazda 3) and motorcycle that passed the cam car. During which, the GetGo driver was driving in between two lanes. (Definitely a sign of a chiu cheng driver) For some reason, the GetGo driver failed to spot the motorcyclist that was LITERALLY right in front of him.  As a result, the GetGo driver ended up swerving to his right to avoid rear-ending the motorcyclist.  The high speed, coupled with the sudden swerve, caused the Mazda 3 to lose traction and skid.  As much as I don't wish to make any assumptions, I can assure you the GetGo driver probably has minimal driving experience (Either that or he is drunk/on drugs). *Don't drop the "Even though I have not been driving ever since I got my license at 18, I have x years of driving experience" B.S on me* While attempting to regain control over the vehicle, the GetGo driver ended up sideswiping the motorcycle...REAL BAD.  The collision caused the motorcyclist to fall and repeatedly roll on the road.  It seems like the motorcyclist may have sustained significant injuries.  The GetGo driver scoots off immediately without hesitating after colliding with the motorcyclist.  Not Caught On Camera According to the cam car, he chased the GetGo car after witnessing the hit and run.  Apparently, during his escape, the GetGo car also collided with two other vehicles in the vicinity of Maris Stella High School.  A pity all these were not caught on a dashcam. It would certainly serve as solid evidence to put this chiu cheng driver away for good.  Here's to wishing the motorcyclist a speedy recovery. And I hope the dashcam video finds you well to assist you in your claims accordingly.  Netizens' Comments 🤨🤨🤨 Heng ah. Kudos to the cam car driver, you the real MVP.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
