Aggressive driver parks illegally and threatens traffic officer to get lost when questioned

A video of a driver threatening a traffic regulations enforcement officer has been circulating on social media and on messaging apps like WhatsApp recently.

In the video, the enforcement officer approaches the driver who has parked his vehicle illegally along a Singapore road. When the officer asks the driver to move away from where he has parked, the driver refuses to and instead angrily alights the minibus he is driving.

The driver moves towards the officer in an aggressive fashion, points his index finger at the officer and warns him to leave – presumably before he does something worse:

The driver – who seems to work at a construction firm, based on his shirt – gesticulates wildly while instructing the officer to move off. He appears to tell the officer to go back to Malaysia during the heated exchange.

The officer backs away, while still filming the exchange, and tries to reason with the hostile driver to no avail. The driver continues threatening the officer in Malay until the officer moves away.

Shortly thereafter, the officer calls a colleague to report the incident. The phone call is partially captured on camera and the officer can be heard explaining that he filmed the exchange as he wanted to get a photo of the driver’s vehicle since he had broken parking regulations.

A short while later, the officer turns back towards the driver who can be seen with a Chinese man dressed in office wear. The Chinese man appears to be speaking with the driver who turns and warns the officer to stay away before the video ends.

  1. These days more true blue locals behaved unusually. We used to be obedient and law abiding under a credible G. These days, we tends to be not the same. We are uptight. These are serious buildups of frustrations owing to many daily work and life pressures. We lost our rights as First class citizens to FTs despite the fact that we are educated at TOP class universities. Such unhappiness and dissatisfactions in daily life permeates across all level of local life. Don’t miss this important and salient Point.

    What we see are the effects of such misbehaviours, but what is the underlying latent causes???

  2. Whether he’s from Manchester or Malaysia, it’s none of his business. His job is to drive safely and observe all rules. Surprisingly as a professional driver he does not know double zigzag lines, he cannot even stop there. How could he wait. LTA should review his suitability to continue as a professional driver.

  3. Officer already gave you a chance by asking you to drive off when he could have just summon you for parking along double zig zag line ….
    Did I heard vulgarity in Malay ? …..
    Don’t be a laughing stock to foreign talents lah ….you can’t even follow simple traffic rules and wanna talk so loudly ?

  4. Firstly you park at double zig zack.
    Secondly you behave aggressively despite the officer ‍♀️ says he won’t take the picture.
    Lastly threaten the officer ‍♀️ by wanting to whack him, why threaten, if u got the balls whack him n face the music, I know sometimes these LTA Officers ‍♀️ don’t give chances but not are like them unless in high dense district..

  5. Here is my take. If one study the whole episode it appears this has all be staged. This guy wears a wig so very little of his facial impression. The whole “movie” is to justify having “Malaysians” and “Taiwanese” in place of Singaporeans maybe because Singaporeans are more forgiving so less money to collect. This is my take so you may think I am wrong, that is fine. It is just my impression. Now look at the publicity by the Ministry of Finance. They wanted to publicise the “goodness” and “intention” of the next budget. They got bimbos with their tektek sticking out hoping to make and impact and it fail. So you have a Minister who approves such publicity. What are they really thinking this highly paid ministers. These are my thoughts you have yours. I may be wrong but it is up to you to think. Anyway there are so many fake news from our national news media we do not know what is real.
