He only snapped away the bad cyclist. 

The Avengers including Iron Man totally supported his decisions

The cyclist deserves it.  He can be lucky this time, he better don't assume that he would be lucky  everytime

.

Each time I cycle on road. 

I am always scared of being road kill. 

Took the CB period for me to start cycling on road as road traffic was low then.... 

Now only dare to cycle post peak-hours and on dedicated bike lanes as much as possible. 

Don't know why so many cyclist don't practice road safety. 

But cycle at night is scared of drunk drivers. ūüėÖ

Last Friday, I cycled from Eunos to Yishun without even being on the road except crossing. Pavement all the way...kiasi.

I must disagree with you. 

We mustn't be so cavalier about human life. 

By which I mean the lives of the poor drivers who will get into trouble with our stupid laws, of course. 

The cyclists must be eliminated in a way that doesn't hurt any driver. 

Like a freak meteor or something. 

I'm completely OK with that.

It wouldn't make a Deep Impact on me.

Or must force new cyclists to watch all the Road videos before allow to ride. 

As cyclists who are drivers, we understand the real risks on posed the roads. ūüėÖ

And the annoyance when the cycle groups all bunch up.

You are right.

The cyclist is right.

I hope he don't chance his cycling style.

:grin:

Change lane no need to turn head and check one.

Today taxi tomorrow king king lorry.

One less idiot on the road to worry about.

Everyday I see idiots doing stupid things.

Idiots and stupid are NOT mutually exclusive.

If u see idiots do not stupid things or stupid things done by non-idiots then must redefine the meaning of these 2 words.

When I was cycling on the road in the distant past, I would only filter out after checking and confirming that any approaching vehicles are far, far away i.e. they do not need to slow down. Otherwise I will dismount and take the pedestrian crossing. This also applies for going across slip road. It was not just out of consideration for other road users, it was primarily for my own safety. I also cycled very near to the roadside kerb, between the double yellow lines.

 

In fact, prior to 5 May 2018, the Road Traffic (Bicycle) Rules had stipulated very clearly that the cyclist is "not to obstruct vehicles moving at a faster speed."

https://sso.agc.gov.sg/SL-Rev/RTA1961-R3/Published/19920325?DocDate=19920325&ProvIds=pr8-#pr8-

 

Unfortunately, this requirement was removed in the May 2018 amendment: 

https://sso.agc.gov.sg/SL/RTA1961-R3?ProvIds=pr8-XX-pr8-#pr8-XX-pr8-

 

I think therein lies the issue...

I think most of the time the culprits are the Mamils. Before the appearance of these tour de France wannabes, there were little conflicts between car drivers and cyclists. The imported Mamils influenced the local ones, not in a good way.

Sadly, our society has degenerated instead of evolving. The lawmakers had a part to play in this.

Superceded clause:

8.  Every bicycle shall be ridden close to the left hand edge of the roadway and in such a manner as not to obstruct vehicles moving at a faster speed.

Current clause:

8.  A person who rides a bicycle, power-assisted bicycle, trishaw or tricycle on a road must ride the bicycle, power-assisted bicycle, trishaw or tricycle as near as practicable to the far left edge of the road.

Both clause looks about the same if you read it in it’s entirety

A lot of times, we have laws that are not enforced. I still see illegal PMD riding illegally at 7am on Pasir Ris Industrial Drive 1

Those reckless cyclist who don't bother their personal safety and other road users will also not bother to read this. 

Drive and Ride safe.
