Altis driver gets overtaken by cyclists and attempts to run them down in embarrassment

Altis driver gets overtaken by cyclists and attempts to run them down in embarrassment

I understand that not all drivers and cyclists get along, but isn't it better to give way than to endanger the lives of others when you're in the wrong?

On Saturday (March 12) night, two or three cyclists and the cam car driver were cruising down a road in Yishun when they encountered the reckless driver.

As the group went by a petrol station, they spotted the Toyota Altis turning out.

After failing to give way to the cyclists and the cam car, the Altis immediately brakes after it turns out.

This scares the cyclists, who swerved to avoid a head-on collision with the thoughtless driver.

They could also be heard yelling 'Oi' at the driver in the video, which provoked him even more.

Continuing on their route, both cyclists and the cam car sped up and overtook the car.

The cyclists then looked back to check on the location of the raging driver as they hurriedly peddled.

This upsets the Altis driver, who immediately sped up and recklessly merged into their lane - just to step on his brakes.

His pride must have been seriously hurt as the cyclists deftly avoided his attacks, resulting in a second attempt to block them (and almost running one of the cyclists over).

The way the driver tries to get the cyclists reminds me of a classic Tom and Jerry scene.

The video ends with the Toyota Altis turning left and exiting the road.

Netizens' reactions

Netizens were divided on placing blame after watching this video. Some condoned the driver's reckless actions while others condoned the way the cyclists were cycling on the road.

While watching the video, it is possible that the cyclists provoked the driver by shouting at him for not giving way to them.

Yep, I think the blame is 50/50. While the cyclists were quite rude (and took up the entire lane after overtaking), the driver endangered the lives of everybody when he played his petty games.

At the end of the day, the moral of the story is that no matter whether we are drivers or cyclists, we all need to show some compassion and be gracious while on the road.

  • Car sharing Getgo vehicle blatantly ignored the red light and hit a taxi

    A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory.  This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road.  It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to con

    Transcab taxi VS Audi A6: A clash of egos on the expressway

    Transcab taxi drivers are notorious for their driving behaviour among the various taxi companies.  It is an impression that the public has developed over time, which I couldn't agree more.

    If you want to chope a table, you put a packet of tissue. If you want to chope a parking lot, you put two 'ah-mas'?

    The 'chope-ing' culture is prominent in Singapore and it is usually observed when dining out at coffee shops or hawker centres. And unfortunately, this toxic culture has been shaped to be part of the Singapore identity. Watch the product of our toxic culture unfold before your very eyes:  What Happened? This incident occurred at an open-air carpark at Block 114 Geylang Lorong 3. Two 'ah-mas' stood in a vacant white parking lot to 'chope' in a supposedly crowded

    A Singaporean Registered Mercedes A45 loses control at a high speed and crashes into five vehicles in Johor Bahru

    Here I am writing two back-to-back articles on accidents involving reckless Singapore-registered vehicles in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.  This time, it involves a hotter hatch than the Volkswagen Golf GTI (Read it here) - the Mercedes A45 AMG. Watch the video of the accident here: What Happened? The following accident occurred in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, in the early hours of 8th May, Sunday.
