On September 8, a video appeared on Facebook group, Singapore Taxi Driver, showing a woman getting out of her Mercedes to swear at a pedestrian before proceeding to drive against the flow of traffic in Chinatown.
The incident, which took place on September 6, was publicised with two separate videos.
In the first video, a woman in a white dress is seen getting out of her black Mercedes and cursing at a passerby. Her car was mounted on the walkway while this happened.
She gets out of the car and appears to attempt to hit someone before cursing at them and then getting back into her car.
In the video, two people in the background can be heard saying in Chinese:
“Take her video.”
“Is she trying to run you over?”
“There is no way she can drive anymore, I told her to get out of here. But she continued driving up here.”
In the second video that was uploaded, the black Mercedes is back on the road. Except that it is facing the wrong way. After allowing a car to get past her, the woman speeds off down the road – in completely the wrong direction.
Netizens, who were enraged by the woman’s actions, were quick to do some digging as well. One Facebook user decided to run the car number plate and it was found that the woman’s road tax had expired in July this year. You can watch the video here.
The Singapore Police Force has since been alerted and they released this statement:
“On 6 September 2019 at 10.24pm, the Police were alerted to a case of dangerous driving along Upper Cross Street towards South Bridge Road. No injuries were reported. A 32-year-old woman is assisting with Police investigations.”
