Thread: Who should give way?

  1. #1

    Default Who should give way?

    I was caught in a jam at the multi-s carpark at Jurong East(next to NTUC super market).

    many cars were moving into the carpark but I did not see car moving out.

    Should the car moving into the carpark giveway to the car leaving the carpark?

    logically i think the car moving into the car park should give way to let the cars inside come out.

    if you dont let the cars come out how are you going to go in? it will be total mayhem.

    same applies for passengers in the trains. let passengers out first so that passengers can board.

    If the car park is packed, how will any car move? Logically you should let cars out to make room for people coming in... And yeah, same applies for MRT... let people off first.

    when car park is full, causing jam to main road turning into the car park, than the right of way goes to those going out.

    when a cup if full, how to pour in more water without emptying it first?

    insisting the main road turning into the car park as stated by the law doesnt help, it only create even longer jam along the main road.

    This jam happens at this multi-storey carpark. Was caught in it before. Design problem. I was also wondering how are those people going to come in if they are blocking the way out. It is also because of the kiasu mentality.

    let's see.. logical sense dictates that

    if no cars come out, the jam will worsen.

    hence, the cars moving into the carpark should give way to the cars going out so that they have more space.

    a good carpark design is the way to go. so far, of the many carparks i've visited, Harbour Front is still a favorite. it's very spacious and the entrance and exit are of different locations. IKEA Tampines is also another favorite.

    the worst from my experience is Plaza Singapura. stupid design and very cramped up.

    ...??? U get yourself into more jam.

    I stopped at the junction to allow cars to move out.. but those behind me get impatience and started to sound their horns...

    One solution is to install traffic light to regulate the flow.. possible?

    I think the garmen should give more way (i.e. better designed carparks, more space) for drivers in order to avoid such inconveniences in future. But knowing how our system works, you will probably see a paying gantry instead. Money will solve all your problems.

    Going by what I have learnt from the Highway Code, cars joining the 'main' road (in this case those going out of carpark) should give way as they are joining the 'main' road. I bet there is a stop sign at the exit of the carpark.

    But then again traffic jams in Singapore are common sight. I would avoid such places, it is just not worth the time.

    Just for the info for everybody, it has a paying gantry. Too many cars on the road.
