Just then, a taxi can be seen turning onto the same road and towards the Mercedes-Benz in the opposite direction. Fortunately, both cars managed to stop in time. Five seconds later, the Mercedes-Benz driver appeared to make an attempt to U-turn.

The 22-second clip was posted on community monitoring Facebook page Beh Chia Lor on Wednesday (Jan 18).

The location of the incident is unidentified, but netizens speculate that it took place at Bedok North Street 3.

The incident comes a month after a fatal accident on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) in which a driver allegedly drove his Mercedes-Benz against the flow of traffic, killing a motorist and injuring three others.

On Jan 5, another car was seen travelling in the wrong direction on the AYE, nearly colliding with an oncoming vehicle.
