Another rich man is in the spotlight this week for road hogging a sheltered walkway and refusing to give way to others.

According to driver Eugene Ow, the Mercedes Benz parked at sheltered walkway during a rainy day, preventing a taxi and his vehicle from entering even though the driver was not picking up anyone.

According to driver Eugene Ow, the Mercedes Benz parked at a sheltered walkway during a heavy downpour, preventing a taxi and his vehicle from entering even though the driver was not picking up anyone.

Despite repeated horns from the taxi, the Mercedes driver refused to budge. Eugene Ow needed access to the drop off point to fetch his elderly father.

The Singaporean driver then alighted and approached the Mercedes driver who refused to wind down his window and ignore him.

Eugene Ow then drove to the front of the walkway and reversed into the pick-up point, to which the Mercedes driver threatened to send a video of him reversing to the Land Transport Authority.

The driver then posted on Facebook recounting the incident and garnered more than 2,200 shares.

“I’m completely ashamed to have this man a Singaporean. He doesn’t have to be a road bully even if he drives a luxury car!

It was raining heavily and yet he hogged the pick-up/dropped off point! I was behind the taxi that couldn’t pass the red car(given the way the red car was parked) Despite all the honks from the Taxi driver, he refused to make way. I was given with no choice but to brave the rain and walk up to him, requesting if he can loop around so that I may drop off my elderly dad… he didn’t even wind down the window, instead, he gestured with his finger that I should use my brain to alight my dad without him getting wet!

I was desperate and have to drive towards the exit of the drop off point and slowly reverse in, this time round, he finally wind down his window, snap the footage of me reversing into the drop off point and threaten to submit to LTA/Traffic Police for dangerous driving. I hope nothing will happen to me…”
