Singapore—A photo posted on the popular ROADS.sg Facebook page on Monday (June 14) has surprised netizens almost as much as the original poster.

The person who sent the picture to ROADS.sg wrote, “When my car stopped next to this PHV driver, this is what I saw. There were 4 mobile phones, all screens were switched on and he was enjoying MTV music video on the car entertainment screen.” 

Call us old-fashioned but we firmly believe that when a person is , their full attention should be on the road.
