  1. Imagine seeing a whole VAN lane split better than motorcycles. Get this driver into teaching ASAP. What happened? A Malaysian-registered Hyundai Starex on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) was presented ‘the bird’ by 2 motorcyclists passing by, and proceeded to take off and chase after the offenders. The original FB post implies that the bikes were also Malaysian-registered, due to the quote “chase down fellow countrymen on bikes”, but the plate numbers are too small to make anything of it. There is no context to why the bikers flipped off the Hyundai, if there was any motive at all behind it. What we do know is that the Hyundai did not take it lying down. Without missing a beat they chased after the bikes, weaving between vehicles and somehow avoided any damage, as the FB post also said “Almost scratching whole line of vehicles”. Bro was HIM. Bro taught the Fast and Furious cast how to drive. The amount of focus to keep from touching others with such a big vehicle though… Online chatter Many were impressed at the van’s skills. As impressive as it was, some still noted that the driver posed a danger to others and wanted them to face consequences. Starexes seem to have a bad reputation too... ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  2. All the interesting things happen over the weekend. Like this, for example. What happened? On 21 May, 2023, Hougang residents were greeted with an unusual sight. Motorcyclists. No, I’m not saying motorcyclists are unusual, but how many of them there were certainly was. Not to mention how they are all pushing their bikes alongside them instead of using them. Traffic police were there as well, seemingly keeping a watchful eye over the motorcyclists. We have no information or context on why they’re all rounded up like this so… someone misbehaved? Online chatter One netizen noted how it looked like a “walk of shame”, as if the motorcyclists were from primary school. A few also joked that a funeral was happening. Others just questioned what happened to cause the round-up. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  3. TL;DR: A motorcyclist on BKE knocked another bike down and sent both parties off their bikes, skidding across the road. The rider at fault was surely having a good time going fast, feeling the cool night wind against them as they wove through traffic. However, they wove one too many times, and are now likely facing a lot of trouble. What happened? On 21st March 10.40 p.m, at Bukit Timah Expressway, two motorcyclists went into each other after one of them did an abrupt lane change at high speed without even a turn signal in order to exit the expressway. The rider who got hit was knocked down first before the rider at fault knocked into a car and off the bike, as well as their passenger. The condition of the bikers and the pillion rider is unknown. Online chatter. Naturally, a lot of people are commenting against the biker who attempted the lane change. Others hoped the pillion rider was ok. Do be careful when going on the road, especially with a passenger. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  4. Yesterday morning on the busy Seletar Expressway, a lone motorcyclist (and those around him) got the biggest shock of his life when he drove over a wooden block on the road. Due to the impact with the object, he then lost control of his bike, swerving like 'siao' until he was tossed onto the floor, with a hard landing. Ouch! As shown in the video, readers can see the obstacle was not that visible from far away. The video can be seen here The poor motorcyclist must have not seen it too, or he would have avoided it from the start. Aiyo, look at how the motorcycle and the rider were thrown onto the hard and painful road! It was shared that the lorry behind him then slowed down, stopping to render assistance to the fallen rider. Heng! There are still some good Samaritans in the world. Online reactions to the unfortunate incident were mixed, ranging from nasty: To chiding: As well as some kinder comments that expressed concern towards the motorcyclist: This well-meaning commentator managed to sneak a pun in: Steady la. Us Sinkie drivers may be a hot-tempered bunch, but we can still show empathy where it is due. We hope the motorcyclist is well and heals quickly from his injuries. Stay safe on the roads everyone! ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
  5. Anyone got stuck on PIE last evening for more than an hour and half? A few of us in the team did so, no thanks to someone who swerved out at the last minute, causing an accident that required a huge cleaning-up effort from the authorities. Thanks to SG Road Vigilante, we now know what caused the accident which happened at PIE's Steven Road exit in the direction of Jurong, at 630pm. While the accident itself didn't cause any serious injury, it is obvious that the Mazda 3 driver was at fault. According to the comments online, it does look like he or she was trying to avoid a frontal collision in his/her own lane by swerving into lane 2 but that unfortunately meant that the 2 motorcyclists that were lane-spliting, had to fall due to such a move. Kudos to both the tipper truck and the Malaysian van for being reactive to what was happening in front of them!
  6. Every day, almost a dozen motorcyclists or pillion riders are injured on the roads. Hospitals say they account for more than half of the more serious accident cases, even though motorcycles make up only 15 per cent of vehicles here. Last year, 96 motorcyclists and three pillion riders died - accounting for half of all road deaths. Many riders who survive suffer severe injuries because they are flung and dragged or they land in the path of other vehicles. Fractures are common, and they also suffer internal injuries ranging from brain damage to crushed organs, and could end up in hospital for weeks or months.

  7. Having been driving for more than 7 years and having seen my fair share of road acts and having ranted here and there, I believe this post will be nothing new to the community but I think from time to time, it would be good to have it serve as a gentle reminder to one and all out there. This post is not only meant for the motorcyclists out there (both local and cross-boarder ones), but also a message to drivers as well (to be on the look out for them). I understand that the sheer temptation to ride in between lanes, be it on the smaller roads or especially the highways, is very high. It allows riders to get to their destination somewhat faster and also it allows bikers to move ahead of the pack during a traffic jam. The act of riding between lanes is foremost against the law, but let's put that aside for now, as the sheer danger of being squashed between vehicles is even more severe a "penalty" than a fine or demerit points. On several occasions, I am honked at by the bikers for the following scenario:- - for "hogging" the area near the lane dividers, thus depriving them the chance to use it - for changing lanes when they're just behind me trying to rush through the lane dividers It would appear to the riding community that I have been rather inconsiderate in my behaviour while I am on the road. My car is bigger than any motorcycle out there and certainly, I am in a state of comfort in my air conditioned ride along with the added safety of pure metal wrapping me, instead of me having to use my fleshy body to wrap around the bike itself. But what I think could be of use to both communities is that simple acts for bikes like:- - not dashing in front of a car suddenly - not clogging in front of a car past the stop line - not riding dangerously between cars - not riding between two lanes All these acts would lead to a much better road environment, both for safety as well as the sheer reduction in road anger. These views are solely my own as a driver. I know that there will be bikers out there who feel justified in some of the above acts, but the message I am trying to drive at is that it is a matter of road safety rather than the pride of driving a car versus riding a bike. Afterall at the end of the day, if a biker were to have accidently brushed against my car during an overtaking move, all I'd be screaming about is the fact that I'd need to respray that panel, while the rider might be screaming in pain instead from the brush or the fall.
  8. Most people may not know that between 2003 and 2013, the car population jumped from 405,328 vehicles to 621,345 vehicles, a staggering 53% increase, according to official Land Transport Authority data. In the same period, the motorcycle population only increased from 134,767 vehicles to 144,307 vehicles, a 7% increase. Private cars now form 64% of the total vehicle population, while motorcycles make up 15%. Despite the minimal impact of motorcycles on road congestion and pollution, in the past four months, the Certificate of Entitlement premium for two-wheelers has increased 240% to $4,289 as the LTA has applied its one-size-fits-all formula to capping vehicle population growth in Singapore. While the LTA is doing the right thing in correcting the over-supply of COE in the past decade, it may not realize how its myopic approach in severely restricting the release of motorcycle COEs is hurting the motorcycling population and intensifying a growing social equity problem. In a country where the wage gap issue looms over many heartland discussions, the high cost of the motorcycle COE today hits even harder on the lower income folks. The majority of motorcycles (73%) in Singapore are small capacity bikes under 200cc (Class 2B) and many of these riders tend to be low-income earners who cannot afford a car. For those who work as dispatch riders or have to travel to industrial areas poorly served by public transport, their two wheels are an essential part of their daily workflow. The current quota premium for motorcycles is almost the cost of a new Class 2B motorcycle, and now many low-income earners are now being priced out of the market. It is a preposterous but increasingly real situation that very soon, only the rich can own either cars and motorcycles in Singapore. In the case of cars, the debate has been hot and furious over the price of car COEs. Yet you don’t hear the same outcry over motorcycles in the public sphere because the riding community does not have a strong voice. Singapore’s small size is a perennial problem and motorcycles have been the highly efficient transport solution for years. And they are much greener when compared to cars – motorcycles often enjoy low fuel consumption, cleaner emissions and take up less parking space. The LTA needs to re-examine how its current policies are hurting citizens who have not contributed to the country’s road congestion problem, but are now being made to pay a high price, literally and figuratively.

  9. Kept an extra pair of eyes on the road lately? From June onwards, modified road markings at five zebra crossings in Ang Mo Kio, Jurong West, Sin Ming Road and Bukit Meral Central will remind pedestrians to look out for oncoming vehicles before they cross. Other new measures introduced by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) include signs reminding right-turning motorists to give way to pedestrians at the junction of Rivervale Lane and Rivervale Drive and the junction of Hougang Avenue 4 and Upper Serangoon Road. Said Parliamentary Secretary for Health and Transport Muhammad Faishal: "It is incumbent on the driver to always look out and be alert to pedestrians and other vulnerable road users...Let us make safety a priority so that we can make it home safely everyday to our loved ones."

  10. Here is something different, amid all the negative driving experiences we had recently. http://ride.asiaone.com/news/general/story...e-motorcyclists
  11. Hi all, Have a question on lane sharing with Motorcyclists. Scenario 1 If a Motorcyclist is riding near to the left edge of Lane 1 and you are behind him. If there is sufficient space to go forward, do you guys proceed or just drive behind the motorcyclist? Which is more correct and an acceptable practice? Scenario 2 You are driving on Lane 1 (may be our cars these days are smaller or the bikes are getting larger), a motorcyclist just sequezed in by the left edge and run parallel with you. Do you speed up or do you drive slower to let him overtake you from the left? Regards,
  12. After living in low floor HDB unit, I realized that there are motorcyclists that for some unknown reasons, like to park at void decks and along the side roads. I'm ok with them initially but I soon realized that every morning and night when these motorcyclists started their engines, it was loud and disturbing. not to mention those exhaust . I just wondering why they don't park their motorcycles in the nearby MSCP? and for months, I don't see any law enforcers coming here to raid them . On an average, you will see about 4 bikes that parked underneath of my unit at night. One of them is even my next door neighbour and I suspect that he is working in our those law enforcemen agency. Is parking fee for motorcycles really that expensive? What should I do? report them? film them, photo them? who should I report them to? Thank you. Regards,
