Road rage video draws flak from online community

A ROAD rage incident involving a Caucasian has sparked the ire of netizens after a video of him pointing his middle finger at a motorist was circulated online.

The 41-second clip, which was taken with an in-vehicle camera mounted on a car dashboard, was posted on online community website Singapore Reckless Drivers last Thursday.

The video was also posted on sociopolitical website The Real Singapore.

Together, the posts have drawn about 1,000 shares and likes, with most comments slamming the Caucasian motorcyclist.

In the video, which has no sound, the Caucasian is riding a red motorcycle and stops on the right side of two-lane Temasek Boulevard, purportedly after a horn was sounded at him.

He is seen pointing the middle finger of his right hand and drawing a circle with it four times before getting off his motorcycle and walking towards the driver’s door.

He hits the car’s bonnet as he walks back to his motorcycle, and then rides his motorcycle through a road barrier to the opposite side of the road.

Police were unable to say yesterday whether a report had been made over the incident. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
