One common behaviour of motorcyclists is how they always tend to lane split while riding. 

Furthermore, these riders lane split regardless of their level of experience on the road.

Watch how an inexperienced p-plate rider learn his lesson the hard way:

What Happened?

The accident occurred at the Punggol Exit of the TPE, involving a Go-Ahead bus and a p-plate rider along with his pillion.

Many vehicles were forming up for a right turn at a traffic light when a p-plate rider decided to lane split his way to the front of traffic.

Unfortunately, the inexperienced p-plate rider decided to position himself in the blind spot of the Go-Ahead bus captain.

As a result, while the Go-Ahead bus captain was negotiating the right turn, he inevitably sideswiped the motorcycle, causing the rider and his pillion to fall.

Luckily, the rider and his pillion did not seem to sustain any major injuries, as the impact of the collision was not great.

I guess this will serve as a hard lesson for the p-plate rider to either avoid lane split from now on or be more careful when lane splitting.

Is lane splitting safer for riders?

Some riders argue that lane splitting is somehow "safer", While other motorists argue that it is dangerous and riders lane split for their mere convenience to skip traffic.

However, I have yet to understand how lane-splitting makes riding "safer".

Any experienced riders care to do me a favour and explain it in the comments below?

  • A time-wasting and selfish Suzuki Swift driver and passenger duo sends a cam car driver on full tilt

    The following incident is quite a handful, featuring an inconsiderate Suzuki swift driver, the Suzuki's 'guai-lan' passenger and a very angry cam car driver. Watch the it here: What Happened? The incident occurred at an open-air carpark. For some reason, the female Suzuki Swift driver decided to drive out of the parking lot to the middle of the road for her passenger (likely her son) to load groceries into the car.  Just then, the cam car driver that was parked oppo

    Drive continental = got money? Think again. Cheapo Volkswagen Golf driver lifts carpark gantry arm to evade parking fees

    Was this incident filmed in a bad context?  Or was the Volkswagen driver attempting to evade parking fees? Watch the following video here: What Happened? When approaching the carpark gantry to exit, the Volkswagen Golf driver stopped right before the gantry arm and alighted from his car. He then proceeds to push the gantry arm such that it automatically lifts. Allowing him to get into his car and escape paying a sum of $5? It's a little blur but it's definitely

    Driver honks at a PAB rider and ends up getting bullied and harassed

    If you are unaware, PAB stands for power-assisted bicycles, the 'legal version' of e-bikes that can be used on our roads. Unfortunately, this one reckless PAB rider simply could not stand getting honked while on the road and ended up road raging.\ Watch the video here:  What Happened? A PAB biker was recklessly riding along Serangoon Ave 3 and was honked at by a car behind him.  Upon getting honked at, the PAB biker instantaneously became noticeably upset and tu

    BMW 320i performs a reckless overtaking manoeuvre and causes a motorcyclist to skid (or did it?)

    In most cases, a loss of traction is likely to occur when a car negotiates a bend at high speed due to the drastic weight shift in the car's weight distribution. As such, it is never a good idea to negotiate a bend at high speed, let alone overtake at a bend.  However, some drivers still do it regardless, such as this BMW driver:  What Happened? This incident occurred along Lornie Drive. At a bend towards Lornie highway, a BMW 320i performs an aggressive overtak
