The incident was filmed in a Facebook video posted on the page ROADS.sg. It went viral, garnering a total of 375K views, 1.3K reactions, 1.1K comments and 2.2K shares as of the moment of writing.

“We, Singapore motorist using Malaysian roads are no angels either. Here we see a group of Singapore bikers covering up their registration plates probably avoiding the AES (Automated Enforcement System) for speeding tickets,” the caption read.

Their license plates were blacked out using what appears to be black tape.
