Sometimes, the green turn-left light doesn’t make itself known until it starts blinking. In this case, a black Mercedes honked a white Lancer in the final moments before both cars zipped off into the night. I’ve driven down this road by Yishun MRT countless times, and such occurrences are common: Drivers consistently miss the left turn light and get honked at by others.
So, what is the morale of the story? When waiting at a left-turn only lane, get ready to turn left when you can turn left, and when it is safe for you to turn left, and especially when someone is waiting behind you, and also when you took that lane to turn left anyway.
If you’ve ever zipped down along Yishun Avenue 2, and come to this junction towards Lentor and Yishun Avenue 1, you’d have experienced Singapore’s shortest, quickest, briefest green light; Call it what you will.
If anyone knows why the right turn light is set in such a manner, please let me know. Meanwhile, always be ready to slam the brakes when you turn right towards Avenue 1.
It’s been several years since I got behind the wheel and drove without a dash cam. That has changed. I purchased the 70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro (Global Version) on 1st October for $79.90 through Lazada. It arrived today, four days later.
Now, I (somewhat) fudged up the installation of the electrostatic sticker. Still, running the wires up and along the car trims was a piece of cake. 70mai included a pry tool that you use to open a gap in your car trim for stashing the wires into. If I can do it, you can too.
