Singapore – The topic of car park snatchers became viral online after videos of recent incidents were shared on various Facebook pages.

“Recently, there have been more ill-mannered drivers who insert their car ahead of those waiting for their lot,” wrote Facebook page ROADS.sg on Sunday (Apr 11).

“This is simply rude and ill-etiquette for the driving community.”

One incident showed a vehicle waiting to take the slot of an exiting SUV. “Indicator switched on and stopped to let back car know I am parking,” wrote the driver of the vehicle parking.

However, when the driver moved forward to reverse into the slot, the rearview camera picked up a Porsche moving forward to block the slot.

“This Porsche driver has no driving etiquette at all,” read the caption.

Not interested in dealing with a “shameless driver,” the driver reversed and let the Porsche take the slot. The incident happened on Redhill market on Saturday (Apr 10) at about 8 am.
