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 "bully" them?

Watch this video to find out what I mean: 

What Happened?

The accident above involved a lorry (cam-vehicle) and a Lexus RX300 SUV along lane 2 of an expressway.

The lorry was travelling along lane 2 of the expressway at a constant speed before the reckless Lexus SUV decided to cut in front of it abruptly. 

Just as the Lexus RX300 switched lanes and accelerated, the car in front of the Lexus SUV also switched lanes simultaneously.

As a result, the Lexus SUV performed an e-brake to prevent rear-ending the car in front of it.

Unfortunately, the lorry travelling behind the Lexus SUV could not react in time and rear-ended the Lexus SUV with a significant amount of impact, shattering its rear window. 

It is noteworthy that the lorry was not travelling above the speed limit, nor was it speeding, as the lorry alarm could not be heard throughout the video.

If you're a defensive driver, I am pretty sure you will have enough time to brake.

Technically, the lorry is allowed to be on lane 2 of the expressway. But regardless, "Yes you can travel as fast as the other cars at 80-90kmh but can you stop as fast as other cars too?" is a very valid point for consideration.

In SG all you hear is

I am not wrong

You have to be a really stupid idiot to think you are never wrong.

And many people in SG think they are never wrong.

So there must be a lot of really stupid idiots.

I don't mind commercial vehicles (Eg. Vans, lorries, tipper trucks) travel on lane 2 of the expressway. 

I only mind if they travel slowly.

Regardless of what had happened here. For light goods vehicle if they are transporting goods or passengers their speed limit is reduced from 70km/hr to 60km/hr. And they are to keep to lane 3 as much as possible unless overtaking.

The cam lorry driver feels like dozing off, no attempt to brake when cars are slowing down.

He is hazard to the road. Lucky he rear end a solid safe car and not knock down innocent pedestrian with his blurness.

Lorlee.

4-lane highway.

chose to travel on lane 2. (just like maybe 60% of other commercial vehicles)...

i think maybe next time he will choose to travel on lane 1 instead, cos no blockage... 🙊

Yes but some people in their minds are never wrong and publicly cannot admit they are wrong.

Yeap, if they want to drive lane 2 then might as well go up to 90km/h. But also jolly well bear all consequences.
