It's situations like this that make you seriously consider getting a dashboard camera for your car
In a video that has gone viral on social media, the driver of a green Perodua Myvi was caught driving dangerously just to catch up with another driver who'd honked at him for cutting the traffic queue some kilometres away. The road bully also reversed multiple times in attempts to purposely bang into the other car, causing traffic jam at a busy stretch of road in Subang Jaya. The incident happened on Saturday, 5 August between 1.22pm to 1.25pm.
At the time of writing, the video has been viewed over 328,000 times on Facebook community page 'We are Malaysians'. The video was also posted on several other community pages and news portals.
It all began when the green Myvi, who was right in front of the video's original poster (OP), attempted to cut traffic queue along the Federal Highway by slowing down and switching lanes at the very last minute
OP honked at the green Myvi as they drove past... and probably triggered the Myvi driver, as he drove dangerously fast to catch up and overtake OP's car along the highway
Wanting to avoid confrontation, OP took another route... but the Myvi driver caught up again. This time, he got in front of OP, switched on his double signals, and deliberately reversed in five attempts to collide with OP's car.
At this point, the Myvi driver's actions had caused a jam on the left lane of the busy road. He only reluctantly moved away and left the scene after another driver got down from his car and scolded him for holding up traffic.
At the time of writing, the video has been viewed over 328,000 times on Facebook community page 'We are Malaysians'. In the comments section, some criticised OP for not confronting the Myvi driver directly.
However, most people agreed that the Myvi driver is at fault, with some applauding OP for not losing their cool throughout the incident
It is believed that OP has lodged a police report against the Myvi driver. The driver had also apparently reached out to apologise, although OP insisted that they will not be retracting the police report.
