Haven't seen much from these 5 locations these few weeks. 

 

So the conclusion is............ 

Get new tyres

Get AEB

Get new specs 

Get off the bloody handphone! ūüėÖ

 

Fogot to add

Check mirrors and blind spot too. 

And Get out of yellow box... Please! ūüėÖ

Taxi turning onto a main road HAS to give way to any vehicle going straight.

If King Kong lorry I am sure the taxi would have stopped and no one will ask whose's fault.

:grin:

However the cyclist is legally right but very stupid.

Firstly he ride at night should put on high visibility.

Second he should have got ready to stop as cars will 99% not give way.

Especially taxis, BM and PHVs.

Now he knows lah.

Some people will only ever learn the painful way.

i feel that LTA has not done anything or much to educate cyclist how to behave and protect themselves (and the driver). A cyclist never driven a car, do not know what driver can see and cannot see. All i see is LTA has a blanket rule... whenever a cyclist or pedestrian is hit by a car, the car driver is wrong... ūüėě

I encountered this... on a two-lanes up, two-lanes down, straight road, both sides has pedestrian pavement (parallel to the road, of course). when i was driving, a cyclist was on opposite side, cycling in same direction as me (but on pavement, opposite). There was a zebra crossing. i didn't expect, when the cycling reached the zebra crossing, he turned on his left onto the zebra crossing, in one stroke, without slowing down, i almost hit him. He assumed i know he wanted to cross zebra crossing and i will DEFINITELY stop at zebra crossing for him. As for me, it didn't cross my mind at all he may turn onto zebra crossing (of course, now i have learned and know).

Wasted never took him out - bet he would not do it again!

We cannot stop drivers from being reckless at times, 

But we certainly can safe guard ourselves especially when one is the more vulnerable. 

It's who lying on the hospital bed that matters.

It is the "lopsided penalties" all this years that embolden other road users to behave in such arrogant manner, such a folly that when an accident occur technical penalties are meted out to drivers while the other road users usually take the blunt of physical injuries which can be lifelong. 

Should mete out penalties to other road users and rub salt to their wounds. 

Problem is for some of the road users, without stricter regulations such as license plates, etc (or anything innovative), hard to catch hold of such culprits.

I am trying to convince my MIL about the importance of getting a car with AEB.

Next time you go for a demo can my MIL come along and see?

I get get her to stand in front to show her how effective it is.

:grin:

I also heard if got bird sheet on the sensor it won't work.

Can park the car under a big tree before the demo?

The detection system is very good. The collision warning came on when I approached a small 750mm high 80mm Ōܬ†flexible bollard near the car park gantry. It only failed to alert me when a dog owner let his small dog run in front of my car. It is a combination of camera and radar so blocking the sensors will not disrupt the system¬†ūüėĀ

Sounds like teambuilding exercise.

I tell you the standard of driving here is getting worse day by day.

Everyday the type of accident we see here is getting more ridiculous.

 When an idiotic cyclist rides across  a zebra crossing and red light junction, he behaves as a pedestrian, when he cycles on the road, he behaves like a vehicle, riding at the middle of the road.

About whose fault, my view is the taxi is certainly at fault from the traffic rules point of view. BUT the cyclist plays a critical role here, 1)  no matter how, he must practice defensive riding for his own safety, he should increase he presence by wearing bright and reflective clothing at night, 2) his lights is too dim , with so much distraction from headlights and street lights and  traffic lights, it is difficult for a driver to spot a bicycle like this one. Ok granted, taxi is at fault, but who suffer more?  I still think cyclists should practice maximum road safety, both  day and night .

 

 

 

As with all road users, in the end, regardless of who is right or wrong there is a pecking order. Large trucks, fiel lows by cars, motorcycles, bicycles and then pedestrians. Don’t practice being defensive and insist on yours right of way, then prepared to get crushed. 
as you said it, only you suffer in the end.

how to put it huh...

speeding is like dling and watching porn , u get  my meaning?

its illegal , but as long as u keep it to yourself, u dun disturb others, gov and police close 1 eyes. can u imagine if police is super strict, totally 0 porn, geylang totally close. there would be chaos.

same as the traffic. as long as road is clear, u over speed abit, dun be dangerous cut here and there. dun disturb ppl. tp close 1 eyes.

can u imagine how the traffic would be like, if all vehicle and trucks install cpu, cannot over speed limit. zhun zhun 60. , 80 . 

our traffic will be chaos also. 

But watch porn,¬†the risk of human lives lost is almost zero.. so your analogy is flawed..ūüėɬ†can't say the same for speeding..

Hope our smart nation and Satellite ERP can track speed and dish out fines...
