Patrick Lim, a regular poster on Facebook shared a video of an altercation with a taxi driver. The video posted on December 14, in the evening, earned 59 comments, 60 shares and the unending ire of many FB users.

In the video, a taxi driver can be seen trying to incite the man inside the car, presumably another taxi driver, to alight and fight him.

While Patrick’s motive of posting the video was not certain, netizens speculated and came up with their theories. One commenter said that if he was asking for netizens’ support, he could have posted the entire video and not just a portion of the incident as this confuses the viewer of what the altercation was all about. Another commenter wondered why the poster did not report either to the Land Transport Authority (LTA) or to the company, and instead, posted the video on FB. The video post did not have an accompanying caption about the clash which infuriated netizens.

Based on Singaporean law, the two parties in the video can be penalised for three acts of public misbehaviour. They could be charged with public nuisance, fighting in public, and or disorderly behaviour in public.

Public nuisance is committed when a person causes common injury, danger or annoyance to the public or people in the vicinity. This offense is defined under section 268 and punishable under section 290 of the Penal Code with a maximum fine of $1,000.

As of press time, commenting netizens continue to inquire what the whole story was believing that they could provide more informed opinions if they know what the clash was all about.

TISG attempted to contact Patrick Lim for further comments but has not received any response yet as of press time.
