[VIDEO] Watch How This Man Calmly Handles A Litterbug In Subang
A video of a man giving back the trash thrown out by a driver in Subang, has received thousands of shares on Facebook
The 17-second video uploaded by a Facebook user named Beh Misbah on 16 October, shows a man clad in a yellow t-shirt walking out of his car, picking up a bottle from the road, and handing it back to the driver who threw it out from his car.
mStar identified the man in the video as Muhamad Subki Shaari, a Kedah-born who's currently living in Puchong, Selangor
Speaking to mStar, Muhamad Subki said that he was in a car with a friend, waiting for the traffic lights to turn when the incident happened.
"When the incident happened, I did not see it at first. It was my friend who spotted it and started complaining about habits of drivers," he told mStar.
After his friend explained that he saw the driver in the car in front of the them throw a glass bottle on the road, Muhamad Subki immediately got out of the car and decided to speak to the driver about it.
"Initially, he (the driver) did not want to confess, but I said that I was behind his car and asked him to wind down his window."
Only then did Muhamad Subki realise that the driver was a foreigner and didn't quite understand what he was saying, especially since he was speaking in a thick Kedahan accent.
"Maybe he didn't understand what I was saying," said Muhamad Subki.
Eventually, the driver admitted his mistake and took the criticism well.
"I'm not mad at him, just angry about the littering," said Muhamad Subki, adding that he only chided the driver because he thought the glass bottle can be dangerous to other road users.
At the time of writing, the video has more than 1,800 likes and 4,000 shares on Facebook.
Kudos to Muhamad Subki for handling the issue well!
