  1. Lots of missing context in this one. Nonetheless an interesting watch. What happened? On 11 September 2023, at Yishun (again??) Avenue 6, an altercation broke out between a food delivery rider and a BMW driver. According to the Facebook post, the BMW driver was “closely following” the rider before the incident, saying that “the traffic light signalled”. How specific! Because the traffic light definitely doesn’t have multiple signals, each with VERY different meanings. But we’ll assume the light turned green. Why else would someone “impatiently honk”? Unfortunately for the driver, the rider was apparently infuriated. This led to the shouting and various gestures seen in the video, though the camera was too far away to really record what was said clearly. Oddly enough, the rider seems like a decent person, as they apologised to a driver in the lane besides and waved them through. So either: a) The rider is a bit sensitive and might have taken too long, prompting the BMW to honk. b) The BMW driver was tailgating and is indeed in the wrong and anyhow honk because they cannot wait. Let’s see what the comments think. Online chatter Obligatory “Yishun” comments out of the way first. The general sentiment is that people are siding with the driver, though considering the demographic on Facebook, there’s definitely some bias there. Some just joined in to vent their frustration on cyclists. ========= 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. The brakes on the car must be good, rider was wearing no protection and still escaped unscathed. What happened? On 11 September 2023, at Yishun Industrial Street 1 (because OF COURSE it was at Yishun), a food delivery rider on a PAB (Power Assisted Bicycle) ignored a stop line at a junction and was subsequently hit by a car. The car was going at around 30km/h and unable to avoid the rider, who was already onto the road and stopped moving like a deer in headlights. Upon impact, the rider was thrown off his bike and rolled on the road a couple times before getting back up. Rather smoothly, I must say. In an amazing stroke of luck, the rider seemed uninjured, despite not wearing a helmet or any protection. Incredibly, the rider was unsatisfied with simply getting away from a crash unscathed, and demanded compensation for the incident. What phone is worth $1800? And what loss of income bro?? Online chatter Quite a few people felt the demands were unjustified, with many different reasons. Others simply urged the camcar to just make a police report and claim their insurance instead. ========= 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 - Luck hasn’t run out for this PAB food rider as he speeds through the red light and almost gets banged by incoming traffic Presenting to you one of the top idiots in Singapore. Watch this 34-second clip to see this ballsy man who gave no !@#$ about traffic rules and almost getting himself rekt. What happened? A hairbreadth escape for the PAB food rider as he dashed through the red light and almost got himself killed by incoming traffic. But I guess it's just not his time to go yet. Almost a Code Blue for this man. The safety of food delivery riders have been in the spotlight in recent years, especially so when we’ve been seeing so many cases of these riders flouting road rules and ended up getting injured or killed in the process. It seems as though there isn’t much training nor emphasis done for these food delivery riders since they are able to so easily bend traffic regulations. Online Chatter Is it just me or is his drifting skills kinda funny? A narrow escape for this man, definitely a close call. No matter how urgent the delivery is or how good the incentives may be, one life lost is one too many. Please be safe on the road, protect yourself and other road users. ========= 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. SINGAPORE - Mr Adam Syah, whose renditions of pop tunes on a community piano posted on TikTok have caught the public’s attention, is a self-taught player who has never owned the musical instrument. The 21-year-old student and part-time GrabFood delivery rider said he started playing around with the piano when he was in secondary school as there was one in the foyer that was made available to students. He said in an interview with The Straits Times: “Since the piano was not really used by anyone else, I had a chance to play almost every day during recess, so I could practise whichever song I was trying to learn at the time. “I would watch YouTube to learn the basic chords in a song and then figure out the melody myself.” Prior to his sessions at the community piano at Block 107 Yishun Ring Road, he had not touched a piano in at least a year, he said. He had come across the piano while he was out delivering food. “I went to send the food to the customer first, as I did not want it to get cold, and then on my way down I decided to just stop and try playing a song,” said Mr Adam, who is pursuing a diploma in fine arts at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. His first TikTok video taken at the community piano and posted on Dec 24 – of him playing the tune Rather Be by British electronic group Clean Bandit – has chalked up over 160,000 views and more than 22,000 likes. A subsequent video, in which he played the melody from Ed Sheeran’s hit Shape Of You, has garnered nearly 80,000 views and over 7,000 likes. The response has been a nice surprise, he said. Senior Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam is one of those who have commented about Mr Adam’s performances. He said in a Facebook post: “Something truly joyful about this. The undiscovered, free-spirited talent. The beauty of spontaneous jamming.” The attention Mr Adam has drawn comes after a video showing the musical talent of two cleaners at the Pandan Valley condominium estate drew many views and likes in August. The two men had chanced upon a discarded piano while taking shelter from the rain at a bin centre there. Mr Sumali Sakarwi, 64, played the piano while his colleague Rosli Samat, 49, sang in their rendition of Ku Di Halaman Rindu, a hit by Malaysian rock band Lefthanded. Mr Adam said that while he has received many comments from people encouraging him to pursue music as a full-time career, he wants to just focus on finishing his diploma studies in the next six months and enlisting for national service. He said: “I enjoy playing the piano and also my other hobbies such as playing the guitar, skateboarding and BMX riding, but for me, these activities are a way to escape and de-stress, so I would rather not turn it into a career.” His tiktok: https://www.tiktok.com/@morrdecai
  5. I don't even know which is worse - the fact that the cyclist caused the collision or that he didn't check on the rider after the crash. In a video posted on Facebook just yesterday (29 March), an accident along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 shocks several netizens. In the video, the cam car driver merges towards the middle lane in the darkness of the morning hours. Despite it being a little after 6 in the morning, the dark roads were illuminated by streetlights and the cam car's headlights. Just up ahead, a cyclist on the outermost lane notices the cam car's presence and starts switching lanes. With his bicycle dancing between lanes, it became clear that the cyclist had recklessly switched lanes without checking. At this moment, a motorcycle travelling in the same lane came into view. Due to the cyclist's sudden lane change, the rider did not have enough time to react accordingly, resulting in a rather nasty collision. The impact threw the cyclist off his bicycle while the heavy motorcycle flew across the road. With his path blocked, the cam car slows down and stops beside the cyclist, who immediately stands up with his helmet and bag still intact and attached to his body. After dusting himself off, he gingerly walks to his mauled ride. While attempting to pick it up, the cyclist blocks the path of an oncoming white van. On the other hand, after being thrown off his own vehicle, the rider sits up as he surveys his surroundings. While it is not clear if there were any serious injuries, the rider remains seated for the rest of the video. Netizens' reactions The video shocked many netizens, most of whom could not believe that the cyclist did not check on the potentially injured rider after causing the reckless accident. Yes, there is a difference between making a little mistake and causing an accident that might kill you and others. Note: This comment was in response to the post's description, which reads "Careless cyclist did not check clear, filtered towards first lane and got hit by motorcyclist. Accident happened at Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 (Beside Gain City) at 0640H on 29 Mar 2022. Speedy recovery to both parties.". Even if the cyclist was in a state of shock, it is just disappointing to see this behaviour from him. Where did all of his compassion and empathy go? Although I don't subscribe to the feud between drivers and cyclists, I have to admit that this incident reflects the inadequacy of cyclists to ride safely on the road. Having strict regulations is not the answer when cyclists defy the rules that lay the foundation for a safe and peaceful drive. ======== Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  6. It’s hard to pinpoint who is at the greater fault for this incident. A cam driver captures the moment when a Grabfood rider blindly tailgates behind an equally blind BMW 320i driver – and it does not end well for either of them. On Tuesday (15 March) evening, the cam car cruised down a road in Boon Lay Way behind the red BMW 320i. The Grabfood rider rode on the next lane beside both vehicles. Upon reaching the junction, the driver signaled early to other motorists that he was intending to make a right turn. The rider noticed the junction up ahead and signaled right to make his turn. He swiftly merged into the rightmost lane, sandwiching himself between the cam car and the BMW 320i. As the green light switched to amber, the rider slowed his pace to match the red car in front of him. The driver, however, didn’t notice the switch in lights just yet and crossed the white stop line, entering the junction. At this point, the BMW driver realised that the lights were not a bright green and immediately stepped on his brakes (even though he already was in the yellow turning box). The rider assumed that the driver would continue to make his turn and did not anticipate this move, resulting in him rear-ending the red car and falling to the ground. Can I continue driving after crossing the stop line at an amber light? While it is common knowledge that drivers are to slow down and stop at a junction when they notice an amber traffic light, this does not apply to drivers who had already crossed the stop line. According to the Highway Code, motorists are allowed to continue driving if they happen to cross the stop line as the lights turned amber. If stopping might cause a collision, motorists should continue into the junction to protect the safety of other drivers. So the short answer is, yes! Netizens’ reactions Most netizens quickly took to the comments to criticise the driver for unnecessarily stopping after he had already crossed the stop line. ======== Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  7. Is the weather really that warm that you need to ride without clothes? This motorcyclist thinks so. Spotted on SGRV's Facebook and many other sources, a short-hair motorcyclist can be seen riding nude by the camera bike traveling along PIE towards changi. The nude rider then left the highway via the Bedok North Rd exit with the camera bike following closely, allowing us to get a closer look at this bewildering sight. Thankfully, the video that has been uploaded to the web doesn't show his private parts...
  8. You can't blame the authorities when videos like this leak onto the internet, prompting the government on clamping down on PMDs (Personal Mobility Device). With more than 600 comments as of press time on SG Road Vigilante's latest video post blasting on these YP (Young Punks), this is one viral video. From the video, we can see the motorcyclist (with his friendly gesture) , 'escorting' the bunch of them from bukit timah road, passing by Raffles Hospital before going up to the Benjamin Sheares bridge and stopping at Marina Bay area for some rest. In the clip, we can also see them overtaking traffic easily with no regard for the speed limit of PMDs. No thanks to the friend who 'sabo-ed' the group and leaked the clearly-shot video out, we are fairly certain the authorities will be knocking on their doors soon... Check out what netizens have to say about them about below!
  9. We know PMDs can be fast if you know what to do to increase its performance. Check out how this rider goes from Yishun to Ang Mio Kio in less than 5 mins. Of course, being electric-powered, there is plenty of torque to pull away from the rest of the traffic. The camera car gets dropped once the lights turn green but soon manages to follow behind after some time. No traffic lights along Lentor Avenue? Let's switch into 'max speed mode' then! we are no scientists or mathematicians but a wild guess probably puts the rider speed above the road's speed limit of 70km/h. Soon, he encounters traffic and goes past easily. The rest of the video then shows him passing more vehicles like a pro. Rider even checks his blind spot when changing lane. Bravo! By now, it is 4 minutes into the length of the video and the rider is already traveling along Ang Mo Kio Ave 6. Thankfully, we can see from the video that he did not get into any accident riding on the road illegally. Here's the full video from SG Road Vigilante.
  10. New saga! Cheapo rider take Gojek, according to her there's a route that can avoid ERP. When the driver ask which way, she says she don't know and then claims that driver is out to cheat her ERP money. Driver angry, drove to police station. She tries to record driver and accused him of driving recklessly. She says driver has no right to record her, even though she herself is trying to record the driver. She calls (presumably Gojek hotline) to report driver. They reach a place where there is a Malay policeman. She tried to exit the car but the car is auto locked, and shouts "kidnap!" Policeman appears to side with driver and she plays racist card. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0sziuM1_a8&feature=youtu.be
  11. Give the man a TIGER!!! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=555335134581552&set=vb.487870694661330&type=2&theater
  12. this courier rider almost swerved into my lane without signalling, my honk somehow woke him up & he later apologised(not seen on vid)....wonder if he really dozed off, if so my honk would have saved him from the barrier....
  13. SMRT Night Rider services to be scaled back Public transport operator SMRT is scaling back its Night Rider services due to low ridership. From April 30, Night Rider services heading towards the city will cease to operate. SINGAPORE: Public transport operator SMRT is scaling back its Night Rider services due to low ridership. From April 30, Night Rider services heading towards the city will cease to operate. Night Rider services NR1, NR2, NR3, NR5, NR6, NR7 and NR8 leaving city towards residential areas will also end earlier -- at 2am, instead of the current 4.30am. SMRT said that from April 30, these seven services will operate from 11.30pm till 2am on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as on eve of public holidays. SMRT's Director for Media and Marketing Communications Alina Boey said that ridership for Night Rider has declined steadily over the years to 11,000 per year as of February 2014. "This translates to about 350 passengers across seven services per night, more than a 50 per cent drop since February 2008. Curtailing services between 2am and 4.30am allows us to maintain a balance between reasonable services for commuters and business sustainability," she added. - CNA/ac http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/smrt-night-rider-services/1070866.html?cid=FBSG
  14. Saw this as I was driving back from KL yesterday on NSH...its at above 100km/h...these people are plain crazy...I saw from afar they were at that position and flipping their feet for fun and was shock when I got near them...they could lose their balance easily and become part of the asphalt!
  15. You know, paying careful attention for oncoming vehicles while crossing the street is actually a pretty obvious thing to do. However, it seems that there will always be some people who are just ignorant enough that they tend to jaywalk. The woman in the accompanying video is a good yet unfortunate example. You see, when you jaywalk, not only are you putting your life in danger but also that of other people's. If a vehicle happens to be approaching while you are jaywalking, the driver of the vehicle will be forced to slam the brakes all of a sudden. As a result, other vehicles behind the vehicle approaching you may happen to hit it if the drivers fail to stop their cars at the right time. With that being said, do you actually realise how dangerous you are becoming by simply crossing the street without paying attention? Well, I won't lie to you, though. Most of us probably do jaywalk every once in a while. However, after watching the video, I shall always keep in mind to refrain from doing so as I value my life. I don't know what the woman was thinking when she started walking towards the middle of the street. Nonetheless, while she was crossing it halfway, she seemed to finally realise that she shouldn't have actually started crossing in the first place as it was nearly certain she would get trapped on the centre double line. Unfortunately, she decided to take the worst option, to turn back! Let me remind you, when you cross the street, especially if you're already halfway, you'll probably be better off going forward or halt when necessary rather than turning back. Turning back is very dangerous! Moreover, the woman in the video didn't watch out for any oncoming traffic prior to turning back. Well, I'll have to be honest with you. It didn't really come as a surprise seeing the woman get hit by the scooter. The scooter rider, however, didn't seem like he was paying attention, either. Had he paid more attention on the road ahead, he should, at least, have been able to decelerate. Furthermore, jaywalkers often have erratic behaviour that they may turn back or even jump when motorists least expect it.
  16. You see, if you're living in a place where floods have become some sort of a daily sighting, you may want to consider building a DIY flood kit. Who knows, you may even make a handsome fortune out of it. Don't believe it? Well, what about watching the accompanying video? The guy riding the Honda motorcycle shown in the video makes good use of duct tape and some plastic tubes. With those, he makes some sort of dual snorkelling air intake and ensures that no water gets into his exhaust pipe. So, the next thing he has to focus on is to keep on throttling and make sure that the bike goes in a straight direction. It's pretty creative. Using this method, he successfully managed to go through the flood despite its three-feet depth. What an engineering mind he had for such an unfriendly condition. Imagine how many people you could possibly help with such a DIY flood kit.
  17. A man was jailed for eight weeks and banned from driving for five years on Tuesday for causing the death of his elder brother and drink driving. Jaswant Singh, 54, a technician, who had pleaded guilty, was giving his brother, Mr Harbans Singh, then 54, a ride home when the accident happened at the signalised T-junction of Bukit Batok Road by Bukit Batok West Avenue 7 on July 25, 2009. The court heard that they had earlier attended a ceremony at the house of their eldest brother, whose son was getting married the next day. They had taken some beer. Jaswant was riding along the extreme left lane of Bukit Batok Road at about 12.30am that day when he failed to keep a proper lookout ahead for a car that was slowing down when the traffic light changed from green to amber.

  20. hi all seeking your opinions on buying Term CI coverage where the coverage will reduce every year. This is a CI rider tying in with a mortgage reducing-term loan. Pay $360 premimum per year for $150K CI coverage, where the CI coverage reduce per year while the $360 premium remains the same. Wise move? pls advise.
  21. Many people might encountered this kind of rider. During a quiet and peaceful night, suddenly you heard a long blast and their exhaust pipe sound really irritating. Why must they ride this way? To show off they have big exhaust pipe or...... ?
  22. A*STAR staff condemns dead rider in ECP accident for delay READERS are outraged by a man who condemned a rider killed in an ECP accident for causing a 45-minute delay and incurring $3 ERP charge. The man claims to be an A*STAR employee in his Facebook profile. One reader, Timothy wrote: "This guy, an A*STAR employee as stated in his Facebook profile, made light of the death of a motorcyclist along East Coast Parkway (ECP) by posting insensitive comments on his Facebook wall. "He claims that the death of the rider caused him to be delayed by 45 minutes and incurred $3 in ERP charges. "With this as a justification, he condemns the rider to hell -- 'he's probably going to hell because of that,' wrote the user in his Facebook status bar." Timothy added that the guy did not even have a sense of remorse after being chided by his friends. "In response to chiding from his friends, the A-Star employee remained self-righteous. 'I can phrase it even more terribly...speeding is the pathway to hell. They need to learn'" he writes. "The Facebook user goes on to joke about the rider's death by saying, 'the deceased has been granted a long permanent break,' in response to comment asking him to 'give (the deceased) a break.' "The local riding community at Singapore Bikes Forums is incensed, with a flurry of enraged responses to the Facebook user's statements, which have been uploaded to the site since 11.46pm yesterday. In another e-mail, reader Ronald wrote: "This guy made such an uncalled comment on a rider who had an accident and passed away just because of $3 and 45 minutes of his insignificant life. "It is insulting to the deceased."
  23. And I thought I had my fair share of accidents knowing what to do but this one is a new one truly. Maybe not new to some other bros. I was on a single lane 2 way road, Haig Road towards Haig Court. At the entrance to haig court, I turned left to guard house. Suddenly go one bike whack right into my left side/left rear. He was squeezing in from my left on a single lane road and did not notice my signal. My car not new car 5 years already. I quickly stop vehicle, help the rider up and ask him if he needs assistant. Didnt bother about the damage. help ppl 1st ma. I glanced at the damage, not very serious. Some dents, paintwork badly scratched but nothing that couldnt be fixed. I still pat him on nhis back and tell him that single lane road why rush and cut until like that? Lucky low speed. Cars were horning as they needed to enter the condo so I moved my vehicle some metres forward. After that, took some photos of the surroundings and the bike and then spoke to rider asking him if he would like me to go his workshop, settle here or I claim his insurance. He says that he got no $$$ to pay and no workshop so I say claim insurance lor. He says ok. I say we exchange particulars and as I approached my vehicle to take pen and paper, he quickly rode off on his bike!!!??? wa lao eh. So never mind, I got his number anyway. The security guard also offered to be my witness as he saw me slowing down, signal in advance before turning. Kayu rider dreaming just whack thru. The rider seemed 99% malaysian from his accent but he was riding local bike. I did for a moment think that he was either borrowing his friends bike etc. Maybe not owner. Today go my workshop for 3rd party claim. Shared my sentiments with them. Alamak, tell me that unlike car, bikes no any rider (i know la, I rider too) if bike rider not owner or insured, hard to claim. Bike insurance wont cover. Got witness also no use. Becomes civil case. but if biker no $$$ also wasting my time. Report to police hit and run, police not interested say will only do accident report acknowledgement form for me. So if biker is not owner of bike, my case is as good as gone. It does not matter if I have the photo of the rider, the bike, the damage, the accident scene or even a witness. Nothing for me to claim liao. If I want to teach the fella a lesson, for riding without insurance, must report to police. But police not interested to find out who. sit down and cry. Probably fix with my own $$$. Luckily its in the high hundreds only. knn, good heart, polite and helpful and relax also no use. let ppl take advantage and run like that. maybe i should have reversed hard and crush his bike so he cant run. just sharing my sob story. btw if u guys got any inputs feel free to add. Otherwise, I just wait to pay for my own damage. this kinda case also have, sigh.
  24. Nowadays ppl use to do application of services in the comfort of their home. But some document need hard copy where fax copy is not acceptable. In such case, usually the company will send a dispatch rider to collect ur document (application form with your signature, photocopy IC). how reliable r these dispatch rider when your most important document is in their hand? This question arises when I just receive my M1 upgraded phone online and I pass my photocopy IC to the dispatch rider... Will few months down the road Ah Long come to my house to pour red paint ??? oh no.....
  25. Anyone know the contacts to these vendors who provide the despatch rider ? Kindly PM me. Thank you.
