Uncle & Cyclists Argued ‘Coz Uncle Didn’t Give Way When Cyclists Rang Their Bell. Whose Fault is It?

Picture this: you’re on your bike and this pedestrian is in your way. You ring your bell but the dude doesn’t hear it. What would you do?

  1. Be polite about it and say “excuse me” if you have to
  2. Ring your bell again and again until he hears it
  3. Drive past him unceremoniously, and in the process hit him in the back

Personally, I would probably perform the actions above in systematic order: I will start off with “excuse me”, ring my bell for 15 times before tapping him on the back and getting his attention. If the guy’s going to ignore me even after all that then I’m sorry if I hit him in the back.

But of course, I will apologize if that ever happened.

Other people, however, might not be as nice about it.

Just yesterday (26 Nov), an elderly man and a group of youths on bicycles got into a heated argument after one of the youths allegedly hit him while pedalling.

The incident occurred at a bus stop along Braddell Road at roughly 9:00 a.m.

Stomper Imelda, who was waiting at the bus stop, managed to take footage of the incident, and subsequently sent it to Stomp.

What exactly happened?

According to Imelda, one of the riders had allegedly hit the man in the back, before leaving unceremoniously with the others.

The man started yelling at the group, asking why they simply left after hitting him.

In the video Imelda took, the guy and the man could be heard arguing.

At one point, the man also used a vulgarity on the group.

The argument persisted, with one of the youths clarifying that he had rung his bell to warn the man.

“I ring my bell, you don’t want to move, my problem arh?”

Who’s at fault, really?

Stomper Imelda had this to say:

“It is quite sad to see youths behaving in this manner.

“You cannot just hit someone and move off.

“Moreover, they came as a group.

“Even if the uncle didn’t talk nicely, the youths still shouldn’t have acted the way they did.”

And I agree, to a certain extent.

The youth should have apologised. You can’t just walk off after hitting someone, even if that someone is technically being a roadblock.

Additionally, it’s not uncommon for the elderly to face hearing problems. Heck, even I have hearing problems, and I’m only 22 (sorry ears; I will try to stop listening to music at full blast. Try). So the youth could have been a teeny weeny bit more understanding, you know?

To me, the cyclists are the wrong-doers here. But that’s just me.

How about you? What do you think?
