Motorcyclist Abel Kenneth Pereira took to Facebook to call out the elderly driver of a Jaguar for his recklessness on the road and for almost knocking over Pereira and his pillion rider. His post, published on Sunday morning has since gone viral on social media, garnering hundreds of reactions and comments from angry road-users.

In his post, Pereira said, “good morning brothers and sisters. i met with an accident ytd with this old man. he nearly took me and my pillion into serious state due to his reckless driving. thank god and lucky me i managed to handle my bike well and managed to catch up with him and stop him. or else he would have fled away! please be careful on the road! life’s not cheap and it’s not worthy to face something which isn’t your mistake. ???? #SN80U”

Along with photos of the man, Pereira also shared videos of the incident and of the man refusing to hand over his identification card.

In another video of the accident, the elderly man can be seen driving dangerously close to Pereira’s motorcycle in the first lane, and towards the end of the video his car knocks into the bike.

Netizens also shared another video of a previous incident where the same driver hit yet another motorcyclist by recklessly cutting into his lane. While the motorcyclist seemed to be unharmed, in that video, the elderly driver alighted from his Jaguar and proceeded to argue with the motorcyclist.

While Singaporeans called out the elderly man for his driving, many also said that the motorcyclist was to be blamed too, for not using the second lane despite his slower speed.
