BE EXTRA CAUTIOUS OF IKEA ALEXANDRA EXIT EVER SINCE LTA MADE WAY FOR A U-TURN BETWEEN ANCHORPOINT AND IKEA, MANY DRIVERS JUST CUT 3 LANES AND MAKE WAY TO U-TURN! WONDER WHAT LTA WAS THINKING AND MANY ACCIDENTS HAPPENED ALREADY SINCE THIS U-TURN FORMED
Extremely close miss with this selfish taxi driver!
About 1611hrs, today, 12/07/2015, I was riding along Alexandra Rd back home, and was riding about 60kmph as I’m well aware of the busy IKEA and the many foolish and selfish drivers exiting IKEA, without looking out for other cars and motorcycles on the main road. This road is prone to accidents ever since LTA created a U turn just between Anchorpoint and IKEA.
While I was riding on Lane 3, and I was slowing down as I was afraid a vehicle might just selfishly turn out without checking, there was a Toyata Prius Taxi (SMRT), SHC4502G, turn out to lane 3, and I immediately checked and switched to lane 2. This selfish taxi driver didn’t stop to lane 3, instead he continued to change to lane 2 and I had no time to avoid and defensively changed to lane 1 and came to a stop and this bloody taxi driver went to lane 1 to u turn, was super close.
BASICALLY THIS SELFISH DRIVER, came out of IKEA from Lane 3 to Lane 1 u-turn without checking or signalling. I stopped just beside his taxi door and used 4 fingers and pointed to my helmet to let him know to “use his brains”.
What happen next was what made me post this and definitely I am going to share this post to SG Reckless drivers if need be, who happens to be my buddy who manages it. The taxi was chasing me so closely, and I started speeding to avoid him from bumping me from the back. I came to a stop at Esso Petrol station at Queensway, and this taxi stopped inches away from me and the driver asked me why I pointed him middle finger.
Look at this face properly, my dear friends, if it is your relative or loved ones, I would like him to upload the footage to hear his side, and I am very sure whatever I said to him was also captured on his video camera. I do not have a video footage of this incident as I just took out my memory card to upload other videos yesterday and forgotten to put it back during the ride today.
This uncle, who is about my father’s age made me fucking pissed off, because of what he told me at the petrol station.
He mentioned to myself, “accident then just claim, at most I get points for not signalling and not checking and insurance claim”.
I was calm till you mentioned the above and I lost my temper. Imagine if your son/daughter gets involved in such accident and the driver just tells them to just claim them?
Don’t you feel a sense of remorse?
I’m not condemning all taxi drivers, there are many nice taxi drivers out there. Seriously please think about your own rice bowl as well as others also!
And lastly, don’t ever touch me when we are having an argument, I would definitely not want your ill mannered disgusting skin to come contact with mine! And that could already be VCH!
* YOU SPOILT MY DAY, AND I HOPE YOU WRITE YOUR OWN ACCOUNT WITH THE VIDEO SO THAT PEOPLE WOULD BELIEVE MY ACCOUNT *
