At the start of the video, the driver appeared to show the middle finger after the motorcyclist seemingly blocked the car’s path. This happened after the motorcyclist revved audibly several times.
Based on the surroundings, the incident occurred along Teo Hong Road in Tanjong Pagar.
In the caption of the video, the OP also pointed out that the motorist failed to signal their intention before attempting to cut into the other lane.
