    my 1 cents observations SKX1434T an a-hole for trying repeatedly to force his way in front of you, although he desperately needs to be in left lane as he is also going ECP Changi direction. I will say at least he filtered to left lane early, rather than trying this stunt only at the chevrons. Is there a vehicle close behind you? Such that SKX1434T thought it might not be viable to filter in behind you? When you moved off at the traffic light, were you flooring it? Thus unintentionally pacing SKX1434T - because if he intended to overtake you from the start, he should accelerate harder from the traffic light. Otherwise, SKX1434T is a noob - want to overtake but don't dare step harder. (Unless you are driving a performance car lah, where even feathering the throttle can accelerate you as fast as a Ody on WOT ๐Ÿ˜…) After the first horning, you should have 1) close the gap swiftly and decisively and let him filter behind you, or 2) let off the pedal and let him filter in front of you. Basically be defensive and anticipate that he will try again. Of course, there is a number 3) SKX1434T can slow down and filter behind you, but here we can only discuss your actions further. IMO, I can see why SKX1434T get pissed off - it's like you don't want to let him filter in front of you yet you don't close the gap and let him filter behind you. Still, no excuse for his behaviour..I revert to option number 3).

    To be specific, this refers only to the moment of time between where the lights turn amber -> red -> just before green arrow comes on

    I admit I don't know the black and white TP handbook rule for what is the correct action when light turns red before I'm in the pocket, so that's a bit grey area to me. But look at this incident from another perspective, you are lucky that all you got was some incessant horning. If SCK9977D was daydreaming, inattentive, slow reaction, or chionging to beat the light, you would probably get rear ended. No prizes for guessing which is worse. Unless you planning to scrap and hoot new car liao๐Ÿ˜ If you already know how to anticipate the change in traffic lights, then it shouldn't be a stretch to factor in the time taken for ASS to start up your engine again. Therefore ASS should have no effect on time taken to move off the line. 1 sec to react to lights change + 1 sec for ASS + 1 sec to check clear + 1 sec to slowly accelerate across the junction = not an insignificant amount of time lost. Not to mention this is compounded by each driver in the queue. Good luck to the guy at the end. No need to sprint off the line, but there should be some urgency lah. Maybe not much benefit to you, but benefits to everyone behind you. To me it is about simple civic minded-ness.
