Singapore—A photo of a Porsche Cayenne SUV is making the rounds on social media and has sparked the outrage of many netizens.
On Oct 9, Facebook user Cham Ai Hui snapped posted a photo of the vehicle with a caption saying that the driver refused to give way to an ambulance on the way to the hospital.
Hui said she was aboard the ambulance and on the way to rush her father to Singapore General Hospital for a medical emergency.
Hui said in an interview that her father has lung cancer and collapsed.
The ambulance was blaring with its siren and head lights on to alert everyone on the road to give way.
However, the Porsche driver refused to let the ambulance pass even when the other vehicles had already moved out of the way for the ambulance.
The Porsche driver allegedly even “showed her middle finger” when the ambulance driver honked.
I'm in an emergency and on the ambulance with the siren on. But this idiot Porsche driver just refuse to give way! And…
Hui said the ordeal happened at about 2:30pm and it took the ambulance 20 minutes to get to the hospital.
Hui’s father suffered a mild stroke and is still in critical condition.
Hui also explained that the paramedic told her to snap a photo of the stubborn Porsche driver in order to report the incident to the authorities.
Many netizens expressed anger at the “inconsiderate driver” and urged Hui to file a report.
Singapore Road Traffic rules state that “failing to give way to emergency vehicles such as ambulances, fire brigades or Police vehicles” is an offence and carries a fine of up to S$150 and worth four demerit points. -/TISG
