A gang of 11 cyclists chase down a car and challenges the driver to a fight for honking at them

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 😓

    Honda Odyssey driver and taxi uncle stops in the middle of the road to exchange a series of glorious expletives

    There is a saying that goes like this: "If you are not angry when you drive, you are the one making others angry." It is true to a certain extent, except that it is more towards being annoyed than being angry. However, for this particular taxi driver, he may have taken that quote a bit too far.  Watch the video below to see how he expresses his anger towards a fellow motorist: Warning: The following video features plenty of Hokkien vulgarities, voice cracking and inaudible shouting. Watch it at your own risk! What Happened? The incident occurred along Jalan Sultan.  Apparently, the Honda Odyssey driver cut from the extreme left to the extreme right lane (taxi driver's lane) without checking and almost caused an accident.  The Honda driver's behaviour angered the taxi driver, which prompted the taxi driver to honk him.  Unhappy at being honked at, the Honda driver stopped in the middle of the road, impeding the path of the taxi driver.  Subsequently, both drivers alighted from their cars, and they began to exchange a series of glorious expletives.  Below is a brief and translated version of their confrontation:  A Mere Coincidence? IMO, the taxi driver ain't no angel either.  It feels as if he was out to pick a fight with the Honda Odyssey driver for cutting into his lane.  And somehow, there wasn't any footage of the Honda driver performing what the taxi driver claimed he did.  That's a bit too coincidental, isn't it? Netizens' Comments Seems like the taxi driver was seizing the opportunity to vent his frustration on the Honda Odyssey driver. Sorry, I snickered at this comment. @Honda Odyssey driver Pls upload your dashcam footage.     ======== 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

    Two young children politely bow in thanks after a driver stops for them at a zebra crossing

    Children are the future – and it's looking brighter than ever. A driver took to Facebook to share a heart-warming occurrence that happened to him while he was driving along Anchorvale Link. If you observe the video carefully, you'll notice that the driver seems to be in the vicinity of a school. Tagging behind a school bus, he slows down when he notices the zebra crossing ahead. The driver had thought nothing of it when he stopped to let two young kids cross the road. To his surprise, the two children bowed to show their appreciation as they quickly crossed with their hands raised. Once they had safely reached the other side, the two kids bowed again to thank the driver for his patience. Touched by their small gesture, the driver commended the children’s parents in his post and explained it’s heartening to see such etiquette from young children in Singapore. He also encourages other parents to educate their young ones on polite road etiquette, especially if they are travelling on their own to school. Proper road etiquette for pedestrians While most drivers are familiar with impatient and rude jaywalkers, these two children prove it is not challenging to display proper road etiquette. For those who are unfamiliar, the Singapore Road Safety Council has listed these guidelines on pedestrian road safety. If young children can adhere to these rules on their own, surely the adults can as well. Netizens’ reactions Exactly! Road safety is not a light matter and it is obvious that the parents of these kids have done a great job.     ========= Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Volkswagen Roc plays a cat and mouse chasing game and ends up crashing

    This video is, as the kids say, very 'happening'.  For those confused with what had just happened in the video, let me unpack it for you.  We start with the camcar (the Volkswagen Roc driver) driving down Yio Chu Kang road.  As the black car in front of him starts to speed, the camcar driver revs his engine and chases his 'friend' in a silly speeding game. 
    As both cars speed down the lane, the drivers try their best to avoid crashing into other vehicles. 
    However, to the camcar's dismay, he crashes into a grey car after entering a bend.  Luckily for his 'friend', he manages to squeeze past the car before it changes lanes and avoids a collision.  The video ends with several pictures of the blue Volkswagen Scirocco after the crash.
    Who is at fault here?
    As evident from the footage of the accident, it is safe to say that the Volkswagen Roc is at fault here. After all, it is common knowledge that street racing is illegal in Singapore. According to the Road Traffic Act, individuals found guilty of street racing will face a punishment of a hefty fine, mandatory imprisonment and forfeiture of the vehicle involved.  Following the Tanjong Pagar incident earlier this year, the authorities have introduced a series of amendments to the Road Traffic Act. This includes higher fines and longer jail times for individuals found guilty of street racing in Singapore. First-time offenders will face a maximum fine of $5,000 and up to a year in jail. Repeat offenders will be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to two years. Netizens' reactions While I'm not an expert at car insurance, I highly doubt that the insurance company would be willing to pay the Roc driver after they find out about his little game of cat and mouse with his 'friend'. Yep, and they look like this: I thought the video was shot from a third person's perspective as well, it took me a while to realise that it was the Volkswagen driver's POV. 😓     -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
