Man sits in the middle of AYE

At about 5pm on 25 May, a man was spotted sitting along the AYE towards the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE). A dashcam video of the incident was posted on the same day on the Facebook Group SG Road Vigilante.

In the video, the 37-year-old man can be seen scrolling on his phone as cars attempt to merge onto the expressway, right next to where he was seated.
