Singapore—Sometimes life’s lessons come the hard way, as one driver found out. After an altercation with a motorcycle rider where he was spat on, when he took to Facebook to post about his woes, he got schooled by netizens saying he had been in the wrong.

A netizen posted a video on the SG Road Vigilante page on Wednesday morning from the previous afternoon saying that the location of the incident had been Hougang Ave 5. It was captioned as follows:

“Rider of #FBL3094Y signalled to turn left into the carpark so I turned out of the carpark. Instead of turning left, he went straight and sounded a long horn. He confronted me without wearing a face mask and insisted his right of way even though he has signalled to turn left. At the end of the incident, he spitted  (sic) saliva on my car.”

But as it turned out, and as netizens pointed out to the individual, the motorcycle driver had the right of way after all, as he was going straight.
