Fast cars on AYE spark concern
YET another video showing purportedly reckless behaviour on Singapore's roads has surfaced online, just weeks after two motorists in an online video were hauled up by police for driving dangerously on the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway.
This time, the footage captured by an in-vehicle camera showed over 10 cars whizzing by on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) near the Alexandra area last week, said Chinese evening newspaper Shin Min Daily News.
At around the 10- to 15-second mark of the video - which was posted on YouTube and Stomp last Thursday and last Friday respectively - a red car is seen swerving into the lane of the vehicle recording the video, before cutting into another car's lane.
A 40-year-old accountant, who was a passenger in the vehicle with the video recorder, told Shin Min that she saw many cars, including a Ferrari and a BMW, dashing down the AYE at "frightening speeds".
The video has yielded mixed responses from netizens. Some lambasted the drivers of the fast cars for endangering other road users, while others chided the driver of the vehicle with the video recorder for hogging the lane.
