A 72-year-old Grab driver drove to St James Power Station in the unearthly hours of 5th May 2018, and a 26-year-old man sprang a surprise jump onto the hood of the driver’s car.

The young man was allegedly celebrating his 26th birthday before the incident happened.

He was charged in court on 7th May 2018.

 

Hello!! Do u have nothing better to do than to bully a 72 years old grab driver? My dad has done nothing to provoke u.

The video was posted by the driver’s son, Alan Koh, on what took place that fateful night, near Envy Dance Club.

According to Koh, a person claiming to be friends with the 26-year-old, Chee Chu Siong, contacted him to offer an apology on his behalf.

Koh added that Chee was also agreeable to paying compensation then.

On 6th May 2018, Koh shared that his father, himself and Chee were in negotiations of the damages’ cost but no actual conclusion was made.

This was because the car serving centre was closed at that time, and the Kohs were unable to obtain a quotation for repairs.

The Koh family expects Chee to bear the full costs of the repair as the family is not extremely wealthy.

Even if they had the financial ability, they would not pay the costs as they felt that it was not logical for them to pay for “the mistakes that someone else made”.

Koh also shared that a man offered to help them by spearheading a crowdfunding exercise, but the family declined the kind gesture.

After a service centre’s diagnosis, the total sum amounted to S$14,967.48.

The photo of the invoice was shared to Mothership.sg:

We hope that this case study serves as a warning to all who wants to commit a rash act. Be wise and think twice!

A bus driver was recently filmed to be apparently dozing off at the wheel of his bus.

In the video, which was posted on 7 May (Monday), the driver’s neck could be seen moving haphazardly yet the bus was still in motion.

The passenger who was filming did nothing but record the driver. An act for which he was flamed for by Netizens.

Many felt that it was cruel to post a video like this and to risk the driver’s job when he was probably working overtime to feed his family and was probably exhausted.

Others felt that waking the driver up or holding a conversation with him to keep him awake would have been a more reasonable course of action rather then to film the incident and do nothing while there were serious safety risks.

However, shortly after the video went up, SBS released a statement on the driver explaining that the elderly man had neck problems but that it did not affect his driving in any way.

The spokesperson for SBS went on to say that the driver was very safe and cautious on the road and that he had been certified to be fit for driving by a doctor.

While the video seems to suggest that our bus captain was dozing off at the wheel, our findings based on the CCTV footage from the bus reveals that this was not the case.

Throughout the time he was on the road, the driver “kept to his lane, slowed down when approaching bus stops and also stopped safely behind other buses or vehicles,The driver also conducted a right turn safely during the trip.

All these would not have been possible had he been dozing off at the wheel … We assure our commuters that dozing off while driving is not something we take lightly and will not hesitate to take action against any bus captain found doing so.

The spokesperson also went on to say that the driver’s neck did bend more then usual due to his medical condition but that he was fit for driving.

On Saturday (May 5), Facebook user Belleiansa Xu’s father, who is a Grab driver, was driving near St James Power Station when a man jumped onto his car in what seemed to be an entirely unprovoked incident.

In the dashboard camera footage that was posted on Belleiansa’s Facebook page, a young man in a black t-shirt and cap could be seen rushing at the car and then leaping onto the bonnet.

The driver  sounded his horn but the man simply stepped on his windshield and climbed up to the top of the car.

The driver could be heard in the video saying in Mandarin: “Don’t be like that.”

It was alleged that the man’s friends even shouted at the driver: “We apologised already. What more do you want?”

Fearful for his safety and wanting to avoid confrontation, the driver drove off.
