Singapore – A taxi driver frustrated by a vehicle going at an alleged speed of 90 kmh on the Central Expressway (CTE) flipped his middle finger at the other driver after overtaking.

“Transcab driver shows middle finger to cam car who was driving at 90kmh after overtaking on CTE,” noted Facebook page ROADS.sg on Saturday (Jan 8).

The page attached a video that began with the taxi behind the vehicle recording the scene.

“No matter what the incident, such behaviour is not befitting of a driver representing a taxi company. What do you think?” asked ROADS.sg.

With nearly 500 comments on the post, members from the online community highlighted that the vehicle was hogging the road, hence “deserved” the taxi driver’s reaction.

“You deserved that middle finger. Why? Because you didn’t move immediately to the left once you were done with overtaking. Go and retake your basic theory before you get back on the road,” wrote a netizen.

“You probably get another middle finger from all of us here if you do dumb things like this on the expressway,” he noted in a comment with over 310 likes.

“Cam driver deserved every bit of it! Stop road hogging,” said Facebook user David Au, his comment receiving over 270 likes.

“Cam car, you are at fault (for) road hogging. TP (Traffic Police) can give you a ticket; if lucky, you may get off with a warning,” said another netizen.

According to the Land Transport Authority, road hogging is an offence.

Vehicles with a speed limit of 60 kmh failing to drive on the left-hand lane of an expressway, and vehicles at slow speed failing to keep as close to the left-hand side of the road as possible can get a maximum fine of S$1,000, up to three months jail or both for first-time offenders.
