Look out for cyclists!

Have been waking up @ 4.30am recently just so that I could bring my bicycle - Charcoal out for a morning ride everyday.

Its not that I dun wish to sleep. But most drivers on the roads are crazily crazy. For one, they dun give way to cyclist. I mean, cyclist are really vulnerable on the road. When a car that's driving at 100km/hr along the mandai road beside me, the whole bike will shake due to the wind force. That's how vulnerable cyclist are!

Therefore, to prevent my charcoal from meeting the heavy traffic, I gotta bring him out on the road by 5am and complete my bike training by 9am before going for classes.

Anyway, here's 2 test for you to take. Especially for car drivers.

Scientists call this "inattentive blindness". It happens because we have a limited ability to absorb and remember details when our brain is overloaded with information.

So, the next time when you are on the road. Please look out for cyclist and let them have the right of way! Well, it doesnt hurt to give 5 sec to cyclists to move off right?

Who knows, someday, somewhere, that someone you are honking at, maybe your love ones. So, Look out for Cyclists!
