You again? Food delivery man annoys Punggol and Sengkang road users with reckless driving, Singapore News

They see it rolling (and it looks like) they hate it.

A GrabFood delivery rider is gaining notoriety online for his ungraceful riding style on the roads.

It appears to operate mainly in the northeast of Singapore around Punggol and Sengkang.

Whether it’s supposedly spitting swear words at other road users or changing lanes on a whim, this ‘terror of the northeast’ has it all.

On Thursday, June 9, dashcam footage of his antics was posted on SGRV Admin’s Facebook page.

The 95-second clip was a compilation of two separate incidents involving what appears to be the same cyclist.

On the afternoon of June 9, he was seen on video cycling on the rightmost lane of Sengkang Central, a two-lane street.

As the cyclist passed a stationary trailer parked in the left lane, the driver behind him honked his horn repeatedly.

In response, the cyclist got off his bike for a few seconds and made an aggressive gesture towards the driver before driving off.

The other incident happened on May 23 at Punggol Central and this time he was seen turning right and appeared to be crossing the path of the dashcam car, in the far right lane.

And just like in the other incident, the dashcam driver had to react quickly in order to avoid a potential accident.

Although the cyclist wore a helmet on both occasions, netizens were outraged and many had their forks ready.

“The cyclist is too much. Why monopolize the road? Let faster traffic come first? asked one Facebook user.

Some netizens said the dashcam driver of the June 9 incident didn’t need to be so aggressive with his horn.

“It’s a two-lane road with only one accessible lane, why make a fuss about it?” one lamented. “Let him pass the obstacle on the right.”

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has a set of traffic rules for cyclists and electrically assisted cyclists (PAB).

Wearing a helmet is essential when cycling on the road.

Cyclists and PAB users should also ride as close to the left edge of the roads as possible and allow traffic to pass them safely.

In March 2021, a food delivery man was killed after a Mini Cooper pulled him out of his PAB at the intersection of Hougang Avenue 1 and Tampines Road.

The man was unconscious when taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital and died of his injuries a few hours later.
