"If any vehicle hits him... will the driver be arrested for reckless or dangerous driving?" Another netizen asked.

SINGAPORE: After an online user shared a video of an Escooter rider cruising on an expressway amid much larger vehicles, a handful of netizens took to the comments section of the post to share their two cents on the matter.

An online user took to the Facebook group on Wednesday (June 28) to share an expressway video. The 12-second clip featured an individual riding an E-scooter in the middle of the road and other vehicles driving past the seemingly nonchalant rider.

“I was driving and saw this speeding E-scooter on the expressway going faster than cars,” the caption read.

Many took to the post’s comments section to share their thoughts on the matter.

“This guy (is taking) the risk….playing with (his) own life,” said one.

Another wrote, “Question: If any vehicle hits him…will the driver be arrested for reckless or dangerous driving? Driving without proper lookout?”

A third questioned whether driving such a vehicle on the expressway is even allowed, while a few others made indirect comments calling on the authorities.

A few others, instead, found an issue with the quality of the video, with one saying, “Looks like (an) old video, because the E-scooter is (an) old version model.”

Another said, “I thought (this was an) 80s video.”
