A road dispute on Friday afternoon (June 15) turned violent after the driver of a Singapore-registered Honda brandished a weapon and allegedly shattered the side mirrors of another motorist's car.
In a phone interview, Stomp contributor Jeck told Stomp that he had been driving from Malaysia to Singapore and was past the Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) at about 2.10pm when another white Honda SJH8936L attempted to cut into his lane.
The 27-year-old Malaysian did not give way, but the Honda driver did not stop.
In the process, Jeck's car was scratched.
After that, the Honda driver wound down his window and started shouting at him.
Jeck said: "I couldn't hear him that well because he was already shouting even before I could wind down my window.
"I shouted at him back. I told him that he forcefully cut into my lane and scratched my car, yet still had the audacity to shout at me."
The Honda driver who had moved ahead of Jeck then stopped his vehicle and alighted.
He went to the car boot and took out what appeared to be a sheathed knife, before walking to Jeck's car, while shouting at Jeck to open his door.
Shocked by the belligerent display Jeck wound up his window and locked the door.
Recalling the harrowing experience, he said:
"I was really quite scared then.
"He took out the knife from the sheath and waved it around.
"I quickly locked the door but he just kept shouting and waving the knife."
A female companion, allegedly the wife of the Honda driver then alighted and snatched the knife away from her husband before running back to their car.
The Honda driver continued shouting at Jeck before returning to his car.
After that Jeck followed the Honda as they made their way into the Woodlands Checkpoint in Singapore.
Along the way, he called the police to inform them about the incident earlier.
