Cyclist doesn't check his blind spot and gets rammed by a motorcycle after changing lanes recklessly

I don't even know which is worse - the fact that the cyclist caused the collision or that he didn't check on the rider after the crash.

In a video posted on Facebook just yesterday (29 March), an accident along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 shocks several netizens.

In the video, the cam car driver merges towards the middle lane in the darkness of the morning hours.

Despite it being a little after 6 in the morning, the dark roads were illuminated by streetlights and the cam car's headlights.

Just up ahead, a cyclist on the outermost lane notices the cam car's presence and starts switching lanes.

With his bicycle dancing between lanes, it became clear that the cyclist had recklessly switched lanes without checking.

At this moment, a motorcycle travelling in the same lane came into view.

Due to the cyclist's sudden lane change, the rider did not have enough time to react accordingly, resulting in a rather nasty collision.

The impact threw the cyclist off his bicycle while the heavy motorcycle flew across the road.

With his path blocked, the cam car slows down and stops beside the cyclist, who immediately stands up with his helmet and bag still intact and attached to his body.

After dusting himself off, he gingerly walks to his mauled ride.

While attempting to pick it up, the cyclist blocks the path of an oncoming white van.

On the other hand, after being thrown off his own vehicle, the rider sits up as he surveys his surroundings.

While it is not clear if there were any serious injuries, the rider remains seated for the rest of the video.

Netizens' reactions

The video shocked many netizens, most of whom could not believe that the cyclist did not check on the potentially injured rider after causing the reckless accident.

Yes, there is a difference between making a little mistake and causing an accident that might kill you and others.

Note: This comment was in response to the post's description, which reads "Careless cyclist did not check clear, filtered towards first lane and got hit by motorcyclist. Accident happened at Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 (Beside Gain City) at 0640H on 29 Mar 2022. Speedy recovery to both parties.".

Even if the cyclist was in a state of shock, it is just disappointing to see this behaviour from him. Where did all of his compassion and empathy go?

Although I don't subscribe to the feud between drivers and cyclists, I have to admit that this incident reflects the inadequacy of cyclists to ride safely on the road. Having strict regulations is not the answer when cyclists defy the rules that lay the foundation for a safe and peaceful drive.

Stupid people riding bicycle. Don't even have the basic of basic common sense to check for traffic before lane change. Otherwise just cross at traffic light junctions and save such unnecessary accident.

Sad to say, these vermin were allowed and encouraged to be on the roads by......

Next time, stop them and ask whether they got license or not.

If no, send their face to LTA

  • 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

    Mitsubishi Lancer deserves the hit-and-run after provoking and playing the brake check game with a Toyota Camry

    Reacting with a brake check to a tailgater or vice versa is courting for trouble. These two actions simply do not go hand in hand with each other. Here's why: What Happened?  In the video, the cam car - a Mitsubishi Lancer was gunning down the CTE in the wee hours of the morning at a significantly fast speed. And to its rear was a white Toyota Camry that was also speeding down the expressway. The Toyota Camry gradually sped up and tailgated the Mitsubishi

    Cam lorry's late reaction to a reckless Lexus RX300's e-brake causes it to rear-end the SUV

    A pet peeve of mine is when commercial vehicles (Eg. Vans, lorries, tipper trucks) travel on lane 2 of the expressway.  And I am certain this is a pet peeve of many drivers in Singapore.  Due to the speed limit imposed on these vehicles, they often cause a slow down in the lane they are travelling in (assuming traffic is clear and they are driving under the speed limit).  However, just because they are commercial vehicles, does it give them the right for passenger vehicles to "bul

    Man caught trying to break into a Singapore-registered Hyundai Avante in Johor Bahru or is there another story?

    With border restrictions lifted on the 1st of April 2022, Singaporeans can finally travel to Malaysia whenever they want. That means driving in for 'Lok Lok', getting a massage or filling your tank with subsidised petrol is now possible once again! However, security and law enforcement across the border tends to sway on the lax side of things as seen in this alarming video of a Singapore-registered car being "broken into". Or is there another story? Don't be so quick to judge
