Flashing to overpass when I'm already over limit by 15 kph and in a tunnel

Postby PNGMK » Mon, 16 Oct 2017 9:57 am

I'm not sure if Sinkies (esp those so called professional taxi drivers) know this but lane changing in tunnels is not a good idea and flashing me when I'm already well over the 80 kph limit is not on. Happened twice this morning. New to me! New to you?

(Helps to have a LED light bar on the front, the motherfr got 1000 lumens of light into his mirror when he finally got past).
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

Exactly! :D

Every time I travel outside Sg I'm reminded how inconsiderate and often incompetent drivers here are. Maybe it's something to do with paying so much for a car?

If it's an empty road in front, never stay in the right lane.......it's not my function to police the roads and prevent others getting tickets. Better to keep out the way but one person's "well over 80kph" is another's normal.

Having said that, I'm still surprised that in 10yrs I only picked up one warning, 2yrs ago already..... but it was a bl@@dy stupid place to put a camera in the first place, not my fault :-" :mad:

In Texas, one has to put up with the @^%@#^ arseholes who insist on driving slow on the inside lane.

"It's my right," they say. The law is "Slower traffic keep right", or left in your case. It doesn't say anything about whether you are above or below the speed limit. If you are in the inside lane, and someone is overtaking you, you need to move over.

That's why Singapore used to have the "Motorcycles keep left" signs... they didn't want the 125cc buzzers clogging up the fast lane... they've all been removed now... I guess because bikes will go much faster.
