Egos collide when a motorcyclist crashes into a Mitsubishi Attrage coming out of a parking lot. Who has right of way?

Regardless of your road experience, motorists need to practice defensive driving/riding at all times.

Unfortunately, some motorists simply take things for granted.

Watch it here:

What Happened?

A motorcyclist was riding straight as he approached the exit gantry of the open-air carpark at Hougang Mall.

Just then, a white Mitsubishi Attrage began moving off from his parking lot.

Despite the Mitsubishi Attrage entering the rider's path and field of vision, the rider did not seem to perform any braking manoeuvre and continued riding straight. 

The rider only came to a complete halt upon a frontal collision into the side of the Mitsubishi Attrage. 

After that, both motorists alighted from their vehicles and started blaming each other for causing this unnecessary accident.

The Motorcyclist's Perspective

From the rider's perspective, the Mitsubishi Attrage should have given way to him as he had the right of way since he was travelling straight. 

Furthermore, the Mitsubishi driver failed to check clear for traffic when exiting the parking lot.

In other words, he should not have exited the parking lot as there was oncoming traffic approaching him (AKA the motorcyclist). 

The Mitsubishi Driver's Perspective

From the Mitsubishi driver's perspective, the motorcyclist was still quite a distance away from him. 

Hence, he decided to move off from his parking lot.

The motorcyclist should have given way to him as half of the Mitsubishi Attrage's body was already on the main road.

IMO, I think this is a 50/50 matter - Both parties should bear the brunt for their actions. 

And may I add, how this accident could have been avoided easily?

What do you guys think? Who has the right of way?

Nuff said.

Many netizens seem to be faulting the rider for his lack of defensive riding.

Car driver Salah. He just assumed motorcyclist would brake and give way. This type of inconsiderate drivers should pay for it. Thus. Motorcyclist should go claim injury.

Yes. But most insist their right of way. Or are inconsiderate. That's why collisions (not accidents) happen.

If it was a dump truck

would the CB biker insist it was his right of way

and continued riding straight into the dump truck?

:D 

If he rides into a dump truck

then yes I would agree the biker was right!

Everyone that turns out of a parking lot

at some point or other

another car or bike will need to slow down for them.

If every car or bike sees a car coming out of a lot

refuse to stop there will be accidents everyday.

Thousands of accidents everyday.

:D

The Attrage is was unfortunate to meet a mindless idiot

If the Attrage was a police car would the CB biker bang him or not?

[email protected]#king idiot.

Really needless collision.

attrage wrong because of inconsiderate driving. this type of question should 

1. check highway code

2. ask any driving instructor

3. ask any driving tester

it's because of these inconsiderate / entitled drivers that today the LTA/Traffic Police have changed so many discretionary right turns to RED arrows so as to force stop drivers from using their discretion.

i rest my case.

  • 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

    Personally, I strictly employ the 2-second rule, especially during heavy (heavier) traffic and wet weather.  The extra distance and time provided by the 2-second rule will be crucial for you to react accordingly when the car in front of you performs an abrupt brake. Watch what happens when one doesn't leave a safe distance from the car ahead: What Happened? A total of 14 vehicles were involved in 3 clusters of accidents along lane 1 of the PIE, with two clusters bei

    BlueSG driver fails to keep in lane while making a turn and hits cam car. Gets branded as a 'nbcb'

    What is one similarity do drivers in Singapore have in common? They tend to stay clear of car-sharing vehicles due to the atrocious driving associated with these drivers. However, one particular driver decided to brave the storm and negotiate a turn with a Bluesg driver. Watch how it turned out: What Happened? A cam car driver on lane 2 negotiated a right turn together with a Bluesg driver travelling on lane 1. As both cars were about to complete the turn,
