I (Cameroon) would give you a cookie award if you can tell me which one you should do first:
– Change lanes
OMG, please signal first in case you get the belief system that it’s ok to change lanes without signalling.
I seriously wonder how some people got their driving license Singapore by not learning that. Either that or they chose to ignore the fact and put everyone’s lives at danger or they didn’t learn from a good private driving instructor in Singapore.
Look, it is very important to signal well before you even filter lanes. This is because there may be dangerous drivers who speed and suddenly appear on the lane you want to filter onto. This poses a great driving risk in terms of a road accident potentially happening.
It is also important to start signalling early even before you think of turning your head to check your blind spot as well as your side view mirror because if you did the sequence the other way around, you may suddenly hit a car because other cars driving behind you may not know that you actually want to filter lanes.
I would give you an award if you can answer true or false to the following question correctly.
I should always give way to people who want to cut my lane.
False. You should not give way to overtaking vehicles all of the time. This is something that only top private driving instructors in Singapore will actually teach. You should not always give way to other cars because sometimes the car behind is following too closely to you, and if you suddenly braked to give way to the car next to you to cut into your lane, the car behind might not be able to slow down sufficiently resulting in a crash!
