Singapore—Footage of two buses driving dangerously close to one another made rounds online on Saturday (Feb 13) after it was shared on the SG Road Vigilante Facebook page.

It was also reported on mothership.sg, which headlined the story: “ 168 & 858 engage in mechanical foreplay along expressway”, perhaps in keeping with Valentine’s Day.

Madam , the wife of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and CEO of Temasek Holdings, shared the Mothership report on her Facebook page, She wrote the following caption, “Both drivers should be suspended.”

In the video, the single-deck (service 858) and the double-decker (168) can be seen coming terrifyingly close, which could have caused a terrible accident, as both vehicles were carrying passengers.

It looked as though the smaller bus wanted to change to the leftmost lane, but the driver of the larger vehicle did not give way.

The single-deck bus can be seen crossing over to the lane where the larger bus was for several seconds as the two came very near each other.

At one point in the dash cam clip, the buses looked to be mere inches away, and a crash seemed imminent.
