    As I said, if both sides of traffic lights are sync, the cyclist crossed his side when amber(from the car side). Too bad he is slow to pass the junction and the car, panic to turn, never noticed him. If not sync, the cyclist mostly beating the red light liao.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    Some people just follow the light..... and that's what most driver would do.... especially if they did not see any headlight...

    The car saw the light and is in it's favor, and hence, I think that's why he did not slow down, nor noticed the cyclist.... Car was not dashing red light... and speed was not that fast actually...


    Car turning have the right of way when he turn...... and it is just very suay for the Motorist to hit the cyclist.....

    I think the cyclist was like in the center of lane one or between lane 1 & 2.

    Just hope the cyclist is ok.....

    yup. BOth light should be in sync what. So Driver's fault. The cyclist crossed when amber so he did not beat red light. So all turning vehicles (car) must wait until the straight vehicle (cyclist) has passed before chiong across right?

    I experienced traffic lights can be out of sync even you used it regularly. You never knows who is right or wrong unless the cyclist got video of he is passing during amber and not red. Anyway, as long driver hit cyclist, driver wrong liao, don't care cyclist ignore rules or not. Sad.

    1st principle applies. always slow down when approaching traffic junction.

    Drive safely. Take good care.

    Unless it's the red light for all, except for turning vehicles.

    I think cannot be out of sync right? else there will be accident as both the turning and going straight (opposite) will have right of way.

    In this case, I think must be synced.

    bro...

    i'm just making a reference to the typical driver on the road, not about the accident.

    anyways, a car that is making a turn when the lights to go straight ahead are green (and when the turning arrow is off), has to give way to traffic from the opposite direction going straight

    I agree but as a driver of 30+ years experience, I still find it difficult to spot cyclists especially at night crossing where pedestrians cross. Our eyes will look for faster cars or slow pedestrians, so can miss the fast cyclist. I am not condoning what the driver did but saying it can happen to even the most careful driver. So everyone, pedestrians, cyclists and drivers need to be careful and not depend on others to watch out for them. Be safe. Merry Christmas.
