A 36-year-old Malaysian man was sentenced to 4 weeks in jail and a disqualification from driving for 12 months in Singapore after he had not only cut queue at the Woodlands Checkpoint but also inched his car forward at an auxiliary police officer who tried to stop him.

According to a report by Today, the man, Mohd Shahrir Johari who is a limousine driver, was running late to pick up passengers in Singapore and decided to use the bus lane to cut the long queue of cars.

An auxiliary police officer noticed this and tried to stop him while the officer’s partner signaled for him to make a U-turn back towards Malaysia.

Shahrir ultimately ignored their directions and continued to cut into the queue, causing one of the officers to then stand in front of the limousine, blocking his way.

Despite this, Shahrir then inched his car forward at the officer, coming into contact with the officer’s leg. The officer’s partner slammed his hand on the limousine’s hood and shouted at Shahrir to stop, but he did not.

Frustrated at the situation, the officer’s partner reached into Shahrir’s car and turned off the car’s engine. Shahrir, on the other hand, turned the car back on and continued to inch forward, causing the first officer to step back.

After speaking to their superiors, Shahrir was then allowed to drive further into the Woodlands Checkpoint where he was then stopped by several immigration officers who had reported his actions to the police.

 

Shahrir was later taken to court where a Senior District Judge reprimanded him for the harm he could have potentially caused.

He was then sentenced to 4 weeks in jail and was given a disqualification from driving for 12 months.

The moral of this story is to always respect the law and enforcement officers, and to behave on the road.
