Video Transcript

1
00:00:00,030 –> 00:00:03,240
if you don’t get pissed off once in a
while while driving in Singapore then

2
00:00:03,240 –> 00:00:06,960
you’re probably the one pissing all the
drivers off anyway here are some things

3
00:00:06,960 –> 00:00:10,000
I really hate about driving in Singapore

4
00:00:10,600 –> 00:00:11,340
number one road hoggers

5
00:00:11,340 –> 00:00:14,340
I don’t know confuse you is what road
hogging is so I’ll just give you the

6
00:00:14,340 –> 00:00:17,940
definition and this is from the traffic
police handbook the link to it is in the

7
00:00:17,940 –> 00:00:21,720
description below road hogging is
driving at an unreasonably slow speed on

8
00:00:21,720 –> 00:00:24,869
the road especially on the right-hand or
along the center of the road. Road

9
00:00:24,869 –> 00:00:27,660
hogging hinders the flow of traffic
behind and may cause other vehicles to

10
00:00:27,660 –> 00:00:31,740
pass dangerously on the left
unreasonably slow is kind of subjective

11
00:00:31,740 –> 00:00:36,300
but I mean common sense la right if you see a car coming up behind you and the car is faster

12
00:00:36,300 –> 00:00:38,969
then you know just move to the left
it’s not difficult

13
00:00:38,969 –> 00:00:43,230
usually I notice it happens on the first
Lane of the expressway so on the highway

14
00:00:43,230 –> 00:00:47,340
in Singapore speed limit is 90 and
definitely every time I drive out there

15
00:00:47,340 –> 00:00:52,559
will be someone driving on the first
lane at like 60 or 70, below the speed

16
00:00:52,559 –> 00:00:56,910
limit basically and they refuse to move
over to the left. So the full link to

17
00:00:56,910 –> 00:01:01,379
this video is in the description below
the worst part is even in Malaysia some

18
00:01:01,379 –> 00:01:05,159
Singapore drivers still road hog over
there you know it just makes all of us

19
00:01:05,159 –> 00:01:07,000
Singaporean drivers look bad

20
00:01:07,500 –> 00:01:09,000

2 not using your signals

21
00:01:10,140 –> 00:01:13,530
this driver intends to continue going
straight because there is no indication

22
00:01:13,530 –> 00:01:16,920
of them doing otherwise therefore I
should wait until he or she passes

23
00:01:16,920 –> 00:01:18,000
before I turn

24
00:01:22,500 –> 00:01:24,000
if you’re the kind of
person that switches lanes without

25
00:01:24,090 –> 00:01:27,090
letting anyone know you’re probably the
kind of person that believes the world

26
00:01:27,090 –> 00:01:28,500
revolves around yourself

27
00:01:29,000 –> 00:01:31,900

3 unnecessary lane splitting. so this is not

28
00:01:31,979 –> 00:01:36,180
illegal and there’s nothing wrong with
lane splitting when you know there’s a

29
00:01:36,180 –> 00:01:39,270
traffic jam or traffic is very slow
because it you know when you ride a

30
00:01:39,270 –> 00:01:42,810
motorbike you can just swerve between
traffic to help you get your destination

31
00:01:42,810 –> 00:01:46,770
faster and before you think I’m just
you’re rambling on I used to ride a bike

32
00:01:46,770 –> 00:01:49,799
like I mentioned there’s nothing wrong
with lane splitting but I notice that

33
00:01:49,799 –> 00:01:54,600
some motorcyclists not a lot but there
are some of them who actually ride on

34
00:01:54,600 –> 00:01:59,490
the line not in the lane but actually on
the line you know this white painted

35
00:01:59,490 –> 00:02:03,360
lines even in normal traffic conditions
and I’ll tell you why I don’t do that

36
00:02:03,360 –> 00:02:07,409
when I ride a bike number one is because
that white painted surface is actually

37
00:02:07,409 –> 00:02:12,239
slippery when it’s wet so when it rains
that white area is slippery number two I

38
00:02:12,239 –> 00:02:15,120
notice that sometimes when motorcyclists do that and I’m

39
00:02:15,120 –> 00:02:19,710
on the right lane and I want to overtake
them I have to keep more to my right to

40
00:02:19,710 –> 00:02:22,020
overtake because I don’t wanna risk hitting them

41
00:02:22,020 –> 00:02:25,080
number four people who don’t know how to park so I don’t think I need to explain this

42
00:02:25,080 –> 00:02:27,500
I’ll just show you some pictures

43
00:02:32,560 –> 00:02:35,890
and last but not least number five
people who use their phones when they’re

44
00:02:35,890 –> 00:02:39,610
driving I think a lot of drivers are
guilty of this at some point if you want

45
00:02:39,610 –> 00:02:42,820
to use your phone while driving you know
it’s really none of my business but it

46
00:02:42,820 –> 00:02:46,270
becomes my problem when you start
swerving into my lane because it’s

47
00:02:46,270 –> 00:02:50,320
dangerous for you and it’s dangerous for
me I notice this happens a lot late at

48
00:02:50,320 –> 00:02:53,950
night when there are fewer cars around
if you follow a car from behind you can

49
00:02:53,950 –> 00:02:57,670
see them just swerving into another lane and then very quickly the driver realizes that

50
00:02:57,670 –> 00:03:02,020
he’s swerving and he will abruptly u
know turn the steering wheel to go back

51
00:03:02,020 –> 00:03:05,200
to his original lane so yeah that’s the
top five things I hate about driving in

52
00:03:05,200 –> 00:03:09,959
Singapore thanks so much for watching
guys I’ll see you in the next video
