ROAD BULLY: I’M SORRY
He says he was tired, ‘did not sleep all night’
AMOTORIST, who was caught on a dashboard camera “bullying” another road user in Subang Jaya, has apologised for his action, saying that he lost his temper because he was tired.
The victim, a lady driver, shared screenshots of a conversation between her and the bully, believed to be a student in his early 20s.
The conversation started with him offering an apology via the Facebook Messenger application.
He was believed to have apologised after footage of the Saturday incident, in which he was driving a green Perodua Myvi, made its rounds on social media.
The clip drew the wrath of Netizens, who were unhappy with the bully’s erratic and provocative driving.
Another road user walked up to the man and told him to drive off, then the video ended soon after. At that point, his car was blocking the woman’s car and causing traffic congestion.
“On that day, I was really tired because I did not sleep at all,” the bully said.
He said he was changing from the right to the left lane, but then indicated to reenter the right lane, adding that that was when the victim honked him for a few seconds.
He said he tailgated the victim to “seek an explanation” and had no intention of harassing her.
“It is my mistake that I was not able to control my anger at that time.”
The victim accepted his apology, but said she would not retract the report lodged against him.
It is learnt that the Myvi, with a Probationary Driving Licence sticker, belongs to the man’s father.
Subang Jaya district police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Azlin Sadari said police would summon both parties to have their statements recorded.
The incident is being investigated under Section 42(1) Road Transport Act 1987 for dangerous and reckless driving.
