Is it just me or has there been an increase in idiot drivers in Singapore lately?
In a video uploaded on Roads.sg, a Honda Vezel can be seen driving against the flow of traffic along Onan Road (near Joo Chiat-ish).
In case you haven’t seen the video, here you go

According to the accompanying caption on Roads.sg, this happened at 1840hrs (that’s 6.40pm)
Apparently, on this road, it seems to be the “norm” and these offences are allegedly committed by residents.
Idiot driver? Indeed.

But wait, there’s more!
An image of yet another car going against traffic. This time from All Singapore Stuff’s Facebook page.

The car in question, a Toyota Altis, can be seen facing the wrong way (notice the “SLOW” marking on the road?). This incident happened at Holland Flyover.
On an unrelated note, did you notice the human at the background?
I digress. Back to the topic at hand, we did some digging and driving against the flow of traffic is labelled as “Dangerous Driving”.
The penalties are as follows if you’re a “non-serious offender”, which means you were not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Serious offenders naturally will have longer jail term and stiffer fines.
So please, don’t be an idiot.
