TL;DR - A Mercedes driver in the wrong lane gets out of his car and argues with another motorcyclist about his situation at Woodlands Checkpoint.
We’ve all heard about the BlueSG entering the Checkpoint by accident, now this driver enters the motorcycle lane (by accident??)
Watch this 49-second interaction between the Merc driver and another motorcyclist:
The video starts with the cam car (or rather, cam motorcyclist) being directed into the motorcycle lane from another lane.
At 0.09 we see the reason why – a white Mercedes was parked at the entrance of the motorcycle lane, blocking any incoming motorcycle traffic.
Disgruntled at the inconvenience, he mumbles
Which probably triggered a response from the Merc driver who was standing not far away.
This unleashed a heated exchange of unpleasantries – The merc driver arguing his case while the cam motorcyclist berates him for being ‘arrogant’, ‘stupid’ and an ‘idiot’.
My personal favourite: “Drive Salah still want to argue”.
What the Merc driver wanted to do or was trying to do, is not evident from the video. But, this whole argument could have been avoided if the merc driver just apologised for the inconvenience he caused, regardless of the reason why he was there in the first place.
At least there was no violence!
What Netizens Are Saying
In what world did the Merc driver think that a car could fit into a lane for motorcycles?
We could give the merc driver the benefit of doubt, but is it really that hard to see that all cars are going one direction while motorcycles are going the other? His body language doesn't show any signs of remorse either.
