As of January 1st, all cyclists in Singapore have to maintain a maximum length of 5 bicycles per group on the roads. Failure to heed this new regulation will result in a whopping $150 fine for errant cyclists.

While most have kept to this new regulation, this group of cycling enthusiasts attempts to defy the rules by tackling the roads (and the drivers) late at night.

 

In the wee hours of 9th Jan, a driver was travelling near Keong Saik Road when he chanced upon the large group of cyclists.

After stopping to let them pass, he tagged behind the group as he needed to make another left turn.

As he drove, he realized that the cyclists were slowing down and stopping to decide what to have for supper in the middle of the road.

Wanting to make his left turn, the driver honked at the group, letting them know of his presence.

This upsets one of the cyclists, who turns his head and glares at the driver.

The cam car then makes its way to pick up a passenger in a nearby alleyway while being chased down by a group of upset cyclists.

As the driver was about to leave, he notices one of the cyclists approaching his vehicle from the right.

The angsty rider plops in front of the vehicle to block its way as his other friends arrive, shouting vulgarities and challenging the driver to a fight.

The cyclist in blue throws down his bike, angrily gesturing at the driver for honking earlier on.

He even smacks the car's bonnet a few times as he confronts the driver.

The video ends with a picture of a handprint on the window of the cam car.

Harassment in Singapore

According to the Protection from Harassment Act (POHA), any person who threatens, abuses or insults (whether by behaviour, words or other forms of communication) with the intention to cause and did cause another person alarm, harassment or distress, will be guilty of an offence.

Offenders will receive a fine of up to $5,000 and/or an imprisonment term of up to 6 months. For repeat offenders, the punishment will be doubled.

For causing someone to believe that unlawful violence will be used against him, offenders will face another charge and receive a fine of up to $5,000 and/or imprisonment terms of up to 12 months.

Lastly, unlawful stalking is also an offence under the POHA and it constitutes:

  • Following someone

  • Loitering in areas near someone’s home or business

  • Giving or leaving someone gifts despite being asked to stop doing so

  • Keeping someone under surveillance

  • Repeated circulation of revealing photographs of a classmate to other classmates

If convicted, offenders will receive a fine of up to $5,000 and/or an imprisonment term of up to 12 months.

I agree with this comment. While cyclists are more vulnerable on the roads, it does not mean that they get to do whatever they want on the road.

I think that would create more issues instead 😥

Is there such a thing as bicycle gangs?

Just 12th Jan early morning at 6am at Upper Thomson Road, already witness a group more than 10 cyclists riding. 

In the end, it is all down to individual attitude. These days it seems there are many people having "ego" issues and not reflecting if they are in the wrong. If wrong, just apologize and move on, why still challenge people who warn you, when you are putting your safety on the line?

this kind of conflict will be more and more.  The fundamental problem is limited space lah. In the name of boosting economy, we have flooded this little island with people every where. New Town created, new HDB built.... when we live close to each other, what do think will happen? Economy is No. 1, the rest are not important. If you think this is bad, wait for another one to two millions new immigration coming in....

Agreed! I think it's because they don't believe that they are in the wrong so they want to challenge others when it comes to it 😓

    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

    A man unexpectedly does a faceplant on the road from a moving van

    This has got to be one of the most puzzling incidents I have ever witnessed. Watch it for yourself below: What Happened? This incident happened along Hougang Ave 4.  From the footage, a van is seen turning out from an HDB carpark when suddenly its door swings open and a man in red drops face-first onto the road.  After the fall, the man remains unconscious throughout the rest of the video. It is not known what has caused the man to fall from the moving van. However, it was certain that he was not wearing his seatbelt securely. NGL, this incident reminds me of the introduction to Mr Bean. Regardless, I hope the man is fine and here's to wishing him a speedy recovery!🙏 Netizens' Comments You just had to... What if...this was what actually happened?😯 Very observant! That makes a lot of sense.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Video footage of the Parliament accident: Lower your volume for this one

    There is finally video footage of the recent accident outside the Parliament House. For those who are unfamiliar with the accident, a Honda Vezel ran the red light and ended up getting T-boned by a BMW. This resulted in the Honda flipping on its side and getting wedged onto the road bollards, which shocked the female passenger in the camcar who witnessed the accident. More than a dozen individuals, including the camcar driver, got out of their vehicles to help. They were seen attempting to lift the Honda to an upright position in an attempt to rescue the victims.   The severity of the accident led to the deployment of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). It was reported that 5 individuals were transported to the Singapore General Hospital. According to the Straits Times, the 5 individuals comprised of 2 male drivers aged 51 and 59, and 3 passengers aged between 28 and 61. They were all conscious during the transport to the hospital.  Netizens' reactions We wish all of the victims a speedy recovery!     ------- Witnessed an accident?

    Complacent cyclist ignores red light and gets wiped out by a Toyota Corolla on New Year's Eve

    Some would say that he got instant car-ma for disregarding the rules. In a short clip posted on New Year’s Day, an elderly cyclist boldly crosses a traffic junction when the light is still red. The cyclist then gets a nasty surprise when a white Toyota Corolla crashes into his bicycle. Hopefully, the uncle learns his lesson and will heed the traffic rules from now on. Who is at fault if a driver hits a jaywalking pedestrian? According to the Road Traffic Rules, if a pedestrian crosses any place other than a pedestrian crossing, they shall yield the right of way to vehicles. The same applies to mobility vehicle users, PMD riders and cyclists. However, at any controlled crossing, pedestrians have the precedence to free and uninterrupted passage over the crossing by drivers of vehicles approaching the crossing. It should be noted that this only applies when pedestrians are crossing in the same direction as moving traffic. Pedestrians shall not travel in any other direction unless they can do so without interfering with the lawful movement of traffic. Even though the driver has the right of way, personal injury lawyers have noted that the driver may still be held liable for any bodily injury claim from the pedestrian. This includes payment for their present and future medical bills, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and lost wages. If the pedestrian is found guilty of jaywalking, they could be held partially at fault for the accident. However, drivers are considered more at fault in a jaywalking accident if there was an opportunity to avoid the accident and didn’t take it. While it is tricky to ascertain who is at fault here, the cyclist should not have crossed the road on a red light and the driver should have slowed down when entering the junction. This applies even when the light is green for the driver, as one might not be able to react in time if jaywalkers are crossing. Netizens’ reactions That's right! It doesn't matter if you are a pedestrian or a driver, everyone must adhere to the rules. 😤 When you think about it, it really isn't fair for drivers, even when they have the right of way. It's tough being a driver. 😭 Hope the driver didn't injure himself from braking too hard! 😅      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
