Earlier today (3 June), a video of a strange but dangerous incident in Katong started circulating on Facebook.
At the start of the 12-second clip, a cyclist — clad in her helmet, shades, and biking gear — hopped onto the bonnet of a stationary car.
Following which, the driver immediately accelerated past a junction near i12 Katong.
Amidst the honking, a woman could be heard screaming for help.
Based on the footage, it appears as though the cyclist managed to cling to the car for a few seconds before the video cut off.
As the car moved past the junction, it’s hard to tell if the cyclist was still on it or had fallen off.
Netizens discuss who’s in the wrong
According to a bystander who overheard their exchange before the incident, the cyclist was angry at the driver for “cutting her during a turn”.
He then quipped that the driver made a mistake by driving off with her.
Another user echoed his sentiments, guessing that the driver would lose his licence due to the reckless act.
Meanwhile, a commenter opined that the driver should be held accountable for their actions.
Although what the cyclist did was unacceptable, the driver could have severely injured the individual.

Judging from the footage, it seems like both parties have engaged in impulsive and thoughtless actions.
Regardless of the argument, neither the driver nor the cyclist should have endangered themselves and others.
That said, we hope that the cyclist is safe and that both parties can reflect on their conduct.
