“This irresponsible e-scooter rider breaching a red light and hitting another with full force. Glad to see his e-scooter was wrecked and hope he will compensate the other rider for a new scooter. To the innocent rider, please use this video as evidence to claim from him ‘Gao Gao’. Use the police report together with a lawyer’s letter and claim for medical and a new e-scooter.

This idiot e-scooter rider and his friend ran away before the police arrived.

Wishing this innocent rider a speedy and full recovery.
