What an absolute madman. This dude just doesn’t have any flying hoot left to give or he really misjudged the traffic situation — either way, he casually cruised himself into trouble with the authorities.
For some unknown reason, a motorcyclist made the clearly illegal decision of riding onto a pedestrian path despite being well aware of the presence of traffic police officers right in front of him. On the SG Road Vigilante page, Facebook user Kal El shared the ridiculous footage caught on his dash cam yesterday morning at the junction of Hougang Street 51 and Hougang Avenue 5.
The video starts off with Kal at the junction, where a traffic police officer can be seen inspecting a car that had somehow ended up on a pedestrian crossing curb. Two parked police bikes can be seen, but according to Kal, there were actually three officers at the scene.
When the lights turned green, the motorcyclist in front of Kal must have had a massive brain fart. With the casual grace of a seasoned outlaw, he rode right onto the curb on the left in full, unbridled view of an actual traffic police officer. The blatancy of the offense and the utter nerve of the rider must have stunned the officer as he watched the motorcyclist ride away. The rider had what appears to be a GrabFood delivery bag at the backseat, so uh, kudos to him for prioritizing a customer’s order over getting in trouble?
When the astonishment settled down, the officer can be seen yelling and making angry gestures at the rider, appearing to demand that he return immediately in front of him. Kal, on the other hand, couldn’t help but burst into laughter, cackling at the total irrationality of the rider.
It clearly made his day.
Folks couldn’t make sense of the incident either, but they sure loved hearing Kal’s reaction.
