One is a PMD/cyclist beating the red light

 

One is a car that abruptly changed lanes in the middle of an intersection

 

When one idiot meets another idiot, spectacular things can happen!

Probably trying to mitigate that aunty jay walked that attributed to the unfortunate accident.

 

Yes, I think so too. But it also has him on the hook for a couple of things:

 

  • Fail to keep a proper look out when:
    • approaching the intersection (based on the aunty's pace, she was already crossing the road at the start of the video)
    • entering the main flow of traffic, fail to look at where he was going
  • Did not come to a complete stop at the stop line. It is a solid white line, not a pair of dashed lines. The TP does not enforce this strictly enough.

This type of accident very good - one time take out a reckless cyclist (hospital) and driver (suspension).

I am not saying what you say is wrong but is it also necessary correct?

 

If a member of the family was knocked down.

 

Most people would want to know how it happened.

 

If a member of my own family got knocked down I would want to know exactly what happened.

 

I would also wanted to know whose fault is it.

 

If the driver was 100% at fault I would want him to be prosecuted to the full extend of the law.

 

But seeing the video maybe the family would also know both sides also contributed.

 

Agree.

 

Before technology advancement and abundance of dash cam, without video proof of accident:

 

- pedestrian gets run over and killed

- driver gets charged for failing to keep proper lookout and causing death as a result

- family and friends of pedestrian convince themselves with verdict by authorities that it was entirely the fault of the driver

 

AFTER technology advancement and abundance of dash cam, WITH video proof of accident:

 

- pedestrian gets run over and killed

- drivers get charged for failing to keep proper lookout and causing death as a result

- family and friends of pedestrian STILL convince themselves with verdict by authorities that it was entirely the fault of the driver

 

OR

 

- family and friends of pedestrian come to terms to the fact that if the driver had kept proper lookout, the accident could have been prevented but accept the fact that the "drivers will surely be able to see me and slow down for me" mentality of the pedestrian was a contributing factor

 

i am very disheartened when I see parents with young children in tow, blatantly walking into the path of my vehicle, expecting me to be able to spot them and brake almost immediately for them. What kind of mindset would these children grow up to have? Then if ever they get run over, lose limbs or worse, lives, they probably still will insist their right of way and that the river should have stopped for them. Likewise for old folks, pregnant women, people with eyes on their phones and/or headphones in their heads.

 

In my opinion, the sense of having the right of way and self entitlement of both drivers and pedestrians, cyclists and PMD riders included, are the main contributing factors to road accidents. It is a serious issue in which I feel we have only ourselves to blame. Can we change anything? I do not know. But I do know I will play may part in knowing that the right of way is only useful during accident investigations and I will constantly remind myself and loved ones not to expect motorists to give way to us, UNTIL they have established eye contact with us, come to a complete stop and wave you along.

 

Oh ya, what eye contact? All stuck to phones... 

This kinda farker will meet his end. Just matter of time.

 

Yeah I really hope so too...

 

But too bad for the innocent guy whom he will drag along with him..

Always on hindsight, another preventable accident.

 

1. Pls stop at STOP Line. Only max 10 seconds to start again. I know, some bros will say 10 seconds! Can reach airport from Jurong man.

2 things,

 

1) driver was checking clear of traffic from right side not know the auntie was crossing into his front when he drove off. Worst thing is, after he knock the auntie at slow speed, he still continue to drive through... Seriously wtf.

 

2) auntie simply boh chap when crossing road, machiam own the road. Unfortunately unable to learn this lesson as she pay with her life.

 

On point 1, I have kena before this kena stunt. After check clear traffic and upon moving off, suddenly pedestrian appeared in front out of nowhere. Really shit in pants feeling.

 

Then I guess the the pedestrian also gave you a death stare, which gave you the "drive car big f**k is it" or the "KNN you never see me crossing the road here is it" or combination of both?

 

Haha, been there kena that before

Pedestrians always have the mentality that drivers will always be the one at fault if the vehicle hit them, this is reinforced by all the verdicts in court cases that always ruled against the drivers whether the pedestrians are jay-walking or dashed out from nowhere, which are just mitigating factors to determine the penalties.

 

Sad, but true.

 

A friend of mine was on his motorcycle driving down the road within speed limit, when a pedestrian decided his luck was better that day with the red man instead of the green one.

 

That pedestrian got hit by my friend who never really had the chance to brake in time. He landed on his head and died in hospital a fortnight later.

 

My friend got jailed.

 

This happened when there wasn't such a thing called dash cam.

 

While I understand this is entirely my friend's side of the story and only he knew what really happened and if he had told the truth. I believe he did. But like you pointed out, the rules are always against the people on the machines, even though it may be the fault of the pedestrian entirely.

I believe the car was trying to over take the lorry in front and as he over took the lorry, the bicycle was i the blind spot of the car,blocked by the lorry. Basically no time for the car to react or stop for the bicycle who beat the red light.

Yeah you are right..

 

But hopefully with clips like these, we do not have to rely solely on TP enforcement but on ourselves behind the wheel to cultivate the habit of coming to a complete stop at solid white lines and checking for any funny stuff that can happen before continuing on our way.

 

I do agree with more enforcement, situations like these can be reduced, as per many other road offences. Look at Australia. They have a world-renowned reputation of constant enforcement of traffic rules. I believe it can be achieved here also. Have you come across anyone so far telling you that Lornie Road (just one example) is notorious for speed checks and summonses? That place is so notorious to the point whereby almost everyone on that road instantly becomes an angel.

the problem is how come the van driver did not turn his head back to the front after he turned out  of the main road? He seems to keep his eye fixated to the right or looking down at his phone idk. somemore after bang, he does not e brake immediately, instead go over the aunty body with his front AND back tyre. that's what kills the aunty i believes..

 

RIP.

 

My guess is that the van driver probably did not see the aunty the whole time, even at the point of impact, till after he got off his van to see who/what he had hit

 

At the point of impact, the van driver's head was probably still looking right. Just after the impact, the aunty might already have gone under the front left wheel in which is already out of the driver's sight when he turned his head to the left.. Not knowing he had actually hit someone or guessing he had run over debris on the road, he did not stop immediately and let his rear left tyre go over the aunty as well, killing her.

 

Yes, the van driver should have kept a proper lookout. But he definitely did not expect a person right there and then. At 33 years old and if he had not chalked driving hours and experience, plus maybe the sense of complacency and defensive mode of driving, he never saw it coming.

 

Similar situations can happen to large vehicles when making left turns at controlled junctions. Upon seeing flashing green men or even red men while stationary at junction, large vehicles like coaches and cement mixers checked that it was clear to move off, only to run over someone dashing for it with their rear left tyre. How do we expect such drivers to feel anything, until the wheel has gone over the person?

If the loved ones wanted to watch the video again and again they would have to click the video again and again.

 

If they didn't click the video again and again then they cannot keep watching it again and again.

 

If they don't click the video at all then they cannot watch it at all.

 

Its not like an advert on TV that if you watch TV you cannot help but see the advert.

 

If you want to massage your ego and feel self righteous then we can understand that.

 

But what you write has no logic at all.

I have my point of view and you have yours. No need to put your words into my mouth.

Its not whose point of view.

 

Its just simple logic.

 

If people don't click on the video to play it how can they keep watching it over and over again?

 

:D

 

Its just not possible.

A lot of elderly cross the roads like they own it.  They also like to walk on the road rather than the pavement beside it.  They think you have to slow down or give way to them.

 

thats not the only thing they like.

 

As long as there is a hump across the road, they treat it like a zebra crossing. That includes youngster using their handphones..

I sympathize with your friend.

 

My colleague lost his life cause of a jaywalking school kid. That kid? Some abrasions and a fractured ankle.

The car overtook from the left which has much less visibility infront as compared to overtaking from the right, to make the matter worse , he accelerated immediately switching to the left if I am not wrong,

. Both actions he did are dangerously wrong.

The PMD , cross red light - wrong,

Riding on the road - wrong.

Saved the hassle to call traffic police as he’s already there. And also, did any opportunistic “insurance agents” come forward with their name cards to offer their workshop or services to the BMW TP?? Maybe offer courtesy car of the latest G20 3series to the officer. Lol.
