A video emerged online showing a Toyota Prius, Transcab taxi driving dangerously and recklessly on the road.
The taxi was seen driving behind a motorcycle with a pillion rider at the back, before accelerating while trying to overtake the bike, almost hitting the motorcyclist.
The two vehicles later met again at a road junction, and the taxi once again accelerated and cut off the motorcyclist, this time coming even closer to hitting the motorcycle.
The motorcyclist braked to avoid a collision and the motorcycles wobbled a bit as a result, as the taxi driver then drove off as though nothing happened.
The incident happened on 5 February at about 4.22pm, along Yishun Central.
