Seremban: Two women drivers on the opposing sides of a narrow back lane here refused to back down, resulting in a stand-off that lasted two hours.

Things got explosive as one of the women flashed obscene signs and revealed her bra in the heat of the moment.

A video of the incident showed the woman also not being bothered as she listened to music on earphones.

The showdown between the women drivers occurred at about 11am on Thursday.

The back lane off Jalan Dato Abdul Rahman at the town centre has parking lots on one side, making passage there more acute.

Motorists have been making do by reversing to make way.

The video shot by the one of the women went viral on social media.

In the video, a male passenger is seen getting out and walking to the other car, whose driver seemed to be immersed in the music.

"Reverse lah. Reverse lah!" said the man, who is believed to be the husband of the other driver.

"All he got was the middle finger from the driver, who had earlier shown off her bra."

Tension eased when police ar­­rived and ordered both women to reverse.

One of the drivers told Sin Chew Daily that she showed her bra because she had a sore throat and could not shout loud enough.

"I really didn't expect it to blow up like this. People are calling me heartless and other names."

Another driver who witnessed the ruckus, said he was shocked by the pettiness at play.

"I was behind one of the cars when the stand-off took place.

I saw the driver coming from the other side car flashing vulgar signs.

"At first, the car in front of me could not reverse as there were several cars behind her.

"But even after we all backed away, she did not budge," said the witness.

The husband of the driver denied that he and his wife were rude to the other driver.

Seremban Baru OCPD Asst Comm Thiew Hock Poh said both women involved did not lodge a police report.

A netizen posted on Facebook: "I don't understand this woman. People already have nowhere to go, why can't she just reverse?"

Other Facebook users were less kind to the two women.

"If it was me, I would run them over," said one.
