    All those drivers that stop illegally next to banks, post offices, libraries, churches, temples, mosques....
    Their convenience becomes many other ppl's inconvenience.

    True, how wonderful if every single one of us own our roads, so that we can complain on other things. I am my rules and regulations, no traffic jam, no red lights.

    Sadly, this is not the way things work.

    "马路如虎口"。 As long as you use the public roads, you pose certain risk to other road users. Rather than complain about errant drivers, put more effort in making yourself a better driver, or better predestrian.

    my stand is when a person get a Singapore driving lic,then he or she should obey all the rules and regulations set by the Singapore gov't.

    It's not about complaints about drivers, it's about sharing how we feel towards what type of drivers.

    Being a bike rider, what are your comments on other bike riders who ride on the broken lines? Some of these even go further to overtake traffic using the broken lines instead of the real lanes.

    I'm also a full time bike rider and part time car driver for economic reasons as well like fireblade (i'm on the hurricane )

    I've seen my fair share of cars that cut into me (cutting parallel into me, not in front of me) as if I didn't exist on the road... When you horn them to warn them "HEY I'M HERE!" they give you the finger or stare.

    Funny thing is.. when I trail them all the way to a traffic light.. i stop next to them and stare at them.. wave at them to wind down the window, tap on their window.. they jsut pretend to look straight.. knock on their window with my carbon fibre knuckles... at most it's just a quick glance. I just want an apology or some explanation, I'm a friendly guy..

    Most drivers who act fierce on roads are only brave when they are travelling, hoping they wun have to face whoever directly. When you start to tail them out of the expressway, you'll see them trying funny things to shake you off.. Do U-Turns lah.. slow down at traffic light and speed up when turning amber.. bla bla bla.. all I can say is.. My tiny 400 is just a tad faster than most of the cars on the road...

    I agree, there are many reckless riders on the roads, I've had my fair share of encounters with dangerous riders as well. i.e small cc bike with heavy pillion travelling @ 80km/h on the 1st lane on SLE, super-fast 1000cc bike overtook me in less than 1sec just when I was abt to change lane etc.

    But I ride on broken lines at times too. Before I get flamed, let me explain why.

    Have you tried riding behind a 80km/h SUV with the driver talking and laughing to his passenger(usually pretty and female)? If there's a lane clear for me to change lanes and overtake, I WILL. Otherwise, I WILL estimate and overtake by the right of the vehicle.

    my vote has to go to taxis...most of them do everything that mercs and the other hated roadusers in the list do...and more..

    yes we do hear of some good taxi drivers once in a while...but i see a lot of bad hats on the roads everyday..

    I nearly crashed into a taxi who stopped abruptly a few hours ago. Luckily I braked in time.

    if there's one thing i learnt from my stint in the army, it's this - Never play mother-father (aka. never insult or bring up the parents).

    In any case, CS has strict policies against using profanities. Any more display of such language and you will be banned. And hiding it behind abbreviations doesn't help - we know what it means too.

    [QUOTE=Yildun] I don't like people who complain about other road users. Not happy don't use lah...ask your father buy u one road drive until u shiok[/QUOTE]

    Firstly, your reply are targeting at Cser who complain about road user
    Secondly, you used "your father" in a sentence where there's no need for it.

    Here let me show u an example

    "I don't like people who complain about Cser complaining , not happy don't see lah .... ask your *beep* to buy a photography forum and write until u shiok"

    There's how i interpret your message . Btw if after reading the above example and it doesn't makes you comfortable , neither do we.

    To be fair, I think most Singapore motorcyclists are careful riders - those who flout the rules and endanger themselves on the road just happen to etch themselves in our impression of motorcyclists in general. Johorian motorcyclists are far more dangerous than are Singaporean riders.

    If you're overtaking, thats fine, as it only happens for a few seconds. I'm referring to those who drive on the broken lines at least 70% of the time, as if its a motorcycle lane (similar to bus lanes).

    That said, I was just wondering why can't a biker overtake like a normal car? ie use the whole lane rather than the broken lines in between cars. When a biker uses the whole lane to overtake, the car can see the biker easier. If the biker uses the broken lines to overtake, there's a good chance the overtaken car can't see the biker and knock the biker if the car decides to change lane as well.

    There's a difference between sharing of experiences and complaining. There's also a difference between voicing your views and being plain rude.

    actually i find those riding large bikes like harleys, or scooters dont flout the rules much. as for the rest, i usually see them weaving in and out of traffic, and riding on the divider line...

    I don't really mind if they stay along the broken lines all the way...doesn't bother me if they are not worried for their own safety.

    However, it drives me nuts when they ride between the lanes and cut infront of you when they can't squeeze anymore...

    To these type of riders, I'd like to say to you this:

    You want to kill yourself, go somewhere else...but please don't do it in front of my car.

    oh...reminds me of a time i nearly ran over a bike rider..

    was travelling along cte one day. was drizzling slightly. traffic was moving but slower due to wet conditions. this bike started weaving in and out of traffic when he skidded on the white line almost hitting the car in front of me. bike and rider started skidding seperately on the road. if i had been travelling a bit faster i wouldn't have been able to stop in time and would probably have rolled right over him. gave him a good telling off before helping him to the side of the road.
