Jaywalker dashes across Balestier road and almost becomes roadkill

TL;DR - A jaywalker dashes across the road without checking for incoming vehicles and almost getting rammed by cam car. 

Watch this 40-second clip of a blur 'sotong' getting the shock of her life after a near-accident she caused herself.

What happened?

In the video, you can see a jaywalker making a run along the busy Balestier Road and almost getting knocked down by the cam car. This lady almost couldn’t celebrate this Chinese New Year.

Thankfully the fast reflexes of the cam car driver saved her life, as the driver, too, e-braked in the nick of time. 

If you’ve been out and about Singapore, you would know that roads in Balestier, Geylang, Little India and Serangoon often see the most jaywalkers, as the traffic lights are usually far apart from one another. 

So here’s a cautionary reminder to watch out for cars when you cross the road. And also to not jaywalk.

Let’s see what the netizens have to say about this:

The comments lambasted the lady for not checking for incoming vehicles before she jaywalked. Many of them also commented on how good the e-brakes of her legs were. Pretty sick.

Takeaway

Pedestrians are a vulnerable group of road users. Therefore, we can all do our parts by walking a few hundred meters to the traffic light and guess what! You also get to clock in your 10,000 steps - a win-win situation.

I supposed it is to express her gratitude towards whoever driver not running her down.

  • Self entitled female Karen parks her Harrier on a double yellow, blocks cars from exiting car park at Clementi

    TL;DR - This female Harrier driver double parked her car to go shopping at Clementi’s Sheng Siong supermarket, got unhappy when being called out.  If you didn't already know, the popular term ‘Karen’ is used to describe an entitled and obnoxious middle-aged woman. This lady definitely hopped into the Year of the Rabbit as one.  Watch this 41-second clip to see what I mean. What happened?  This driver decided to park beside a row of vehicles already parked parallel t

    Queue cutters pay the price for trying to use the non-existent fast lane along the causeway

    TL;DR - As Singaporeans flock into Johor Bahru for Christmas shopping, JPJ were deployed to monitor the activities to improve the effectiveness of enforcement of the roads to Malaysia.  As Christmas draws near, Singaporeans get panicky about gift shopping. And that is clearly evident from the number of cars entering into Malaysia, getting fined.  Guess we’re really living up to our Singaporean spirit - kiasu. But not quite the kiasi part.  The JPJ must be internally screaming joy

    Cheapskate BMW driver pumps the forbidden fuel in Malaysia and gets caught

    TL;DR - SG-registered BMW got called out for pumping cheap RON95 petrol in JB reserved for MY-registered vehicles only.  We all love a good cheap thrill. But not as much as this BMW driver.  Watch this 75-second video of him not giving a hoot even after being called out by the cam-car.  What happened?  A SG-registered BMW driver was seen pumping RON95 petrol in Malaysia, when it is strictly only meant for MY-registered vehicles. The way he strategically used hi
