Singapore – It was a case of “man vs car” during a road rage incident along Orchard Road when a Mercedes driver threatened an Audi for hogging the road at a junction.
On May 22 (Wednesday), video footage of the incident was posted in Beh Chia Lor – Singapore Road’s Facebook Page.
According to the caption, the road rage occurred at the junction outside ION Orchard on May 17.
“Ever been so angry about a yellow-box hogger that you tried beating up (sic) his car? This guy has. Also, that small junction outside Ion Orchard is the real villain,” added the caption.
The video began with an Audi blocking the path of an adjacent lane at the busy junction.
The rear view camera of the vehicle in front of the Audi showed a man coming out of the Mercedes, as his path was blocked at the yellow box.
Dressed in a long-sleeved shirt, tie and trousers, the Mercedes driver was clearly in a foul mood. He was seen shouting and gesturing at the Audi driver. He even managed a few kicks and punches to the Audi.
At one point, the man hit the Audi’s side mirror, which the driver readjusted before moving to a safer part of the road outside the yellow box so that the Mercedes could get past him.
Netizens are commenting on the patience of the Audi driver for not engaging in a fight, despite the provocation.
Rafee Maksudi gave some insight on the effects of the actions of both parties, such as a summon and demerit points for the Audi driver but a more substantial punishment for the Mercedes driver.
