Drivers Exchange Insults On CTE After One Overtakes The Other, Called Out For Rude Behaviour

Drivers Get Into Heated Altercation On CTE After One Cuts In Front Of The Other

Navigating traffic can be stressful, sometimes leading to heated altercations if the parties involved allow their tempers to run unchecked.

Such was the case for a driver who allegedly cut off a fellow motorist along Yio Chu Kang Road while turning into the Central Expressway (CTE).

The motorist honked at him as he entered the lane, to which he allegedly flipped the former off.

Both drivers then stopped along the expressway to have a heated argument.

While driving down the expressway, the OP alleged that the driver was smoking in his vehicle, before throwing the lit cigarette butt onto the highway.

The situation continued to worsen as both of them approached the Braddell Road exit.

The driver of the black BMW cut in front of the OP again, before stopping his vehicle, at which point the OP stopped too.

The former disembarked from his vehicle to confront the latter, coming up beside the OP’s window and flashing his middle finger while spewing vulgarities.

Ultimately, no matter who was in the right, exercising a little bit of patience on the road is necessary to avoid heated confrontations.
