Singapore – A Toyota Prius driver with a probationary licence plate (P-plate) was spotted stepping out to pay her parking fees, but she forgot to put the vehicle into park, resulting in an accident after the car rolled away and crashed into another vehicle.

On Wednesday (March 10), Facebook page ROADS.sg uploaded a video of the incident taken by a dashboard camera at the McDonald’s car park in Ang Mo Kio Street 12.

According to the post, the vehicle had a P-plate, which is an indication of the one-year probation period granted to a motorist after he or she is given a driving licence. The driver is required to display the P-plate at the top right portion of the front of the windscreen and the rear windscreen of the vehicle.

Failure to display a P-plate may result in a fine for the first time and immediate revocation of your driving licence for the subsequent time, noted Singapore Legal Advice.

The website adds, “During the probation period, if you accumulate more than 12 demerit points within the year, your licence will be revoked.”/TISG
