Recently, a video of a black Toyota Alphard with a Malaysian number plate had gone viral online for cutting the queue at the Woodlands Checkpoint in Singapore. The driver was going from Singapore to Malaysia.
Not only did the driver use the dedicated bus and lorry lane to try and beat the congestion on the 2 car lanes, but when stopped by the auxiliary police officers present at the scene, the driver proceeded to ignore their instructions to turn back into Singapore, drive around the officers and speed off.
A bus could even be seen stuck behind the stubborn driver.
According to a report by The Straits Times, the Malaysian behind the wheel as well as the car itself has since been banned from entering Singapore.
“The driver failed to comply with the officers’ instructions, and dangerously continued driving forward.”
“ICA would like to reiterate that we do not condone the behaviour of errant motorists who deliberately disobey traffic rules. Such acts pose a safety hazard to officers as well as other checkpoint users and put them at risk,” an Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) spokesman shared.
