Mercedes Refuses To Give Way To Toyota Along MCE Despite Signal, Comments Call For Graciousness

Car Seemingly Does Not Give Way To Another Despite Signal

Thousands of cars are on the roads of Singapore at any moment, so it is to the benefit of everyone to be gracious while driving.

Recently, a video of a car refusing to give way to another surfaced online.

A vehicle was attempting to switch lanes with its signal light on. But, the first car kept closing the gap in front, preventing the other from cutting in for about a minute.

It drew much criticism from members of the public, sparking calls for graciousness and kindness among drivers.

In captions, the camcar driver questioned whether it is a must to give way when other vehicles signal.

“In the end I let him go because my car is more precious than his. Happened today ECP to MCE. Will report him for illegal tint too,” they wrote.
