Netizens were rather riled after watching a Facebook video of a man jumping on the hood of slow-moving cars in an alleged insurance scam.

The video shared on Facebook group ROADS.sg showed the car with its dashboard camera on, coming to a full stop before the man was seen to jump on the hood. The incident took place past midnight last night, at Geylang, around Lor 30 to 34.

The video was shared by Facebook user Selva, who said that the man was running against the flow of traffic and jumping onto oncoming traffic. He also added that a motorbike narrowly avoided the man. It was also reported that the man damaged another Toyota Alphard and other vehicles as well.

According to Singapore Legal Advice, if a driver is convicted of driving dangerously, they face fines up to $5,000 and/or up to 12 months’ jail.

Offenders can also be disqualified from driving for a certain period of time, or for life. This disqualification is compulsory for repeat offenders.

Netizens even speculated if the man was mentally unsound, or suicidal.
