Both men seem to have a brief exchange words before the Hyundai driver punches the Suzuki driver and then returns to his car.

The Suzuki driver does not physically or verbally retaliate, but takes images of the Hyundai’s rear and later the car’s driver.

These photos were also posted on popular Facebook page Roads.sg.

According to a Straits Times report, police have said that a report was lodged over the road rage incident, which took place at the junction of Jurong West Avenue 2 and Corporation Road at about 1.20pm last Saturday (August 31).

While there is no specific law that deals with road rage in Singapore anyone who voluntarily causes hurt to another person can be jailed for up to two years, fined up to S$5,000, or both. -/TISGFollow us on Social Media
