MAN SPED AT 201KM/HR BECAUSE DRUNK WIFE “TRIED TO DO SOMETHING FUNNY”

A 34-year-old man, Allan Ong, was fined $1,000 and banned from driving for 9 months on 16 February after he admitted to going beyond the legal speed limit of 90km/hour.

He was speeding at 201km/h along the East Coast Parkway on 3 September 2020 at about 10.30pm.

When questioned by a police officer about the incident 4 days later, Ong denied knowing who was the driver of the speeding vehicle.

Two charges of providing false information to a public servant and not wearing a face mask were considered during his sentencing.

Ong was asked by District Judge Salina Ishak why he was speeding at 201km/h and what he was trying to achieve, to which Ong replied that his drunk wife was “trying to do something funny”.

He was then scolded by the judge for putting both their lives in danger, and Ong then apologised for his actions.

Ong then pleaded for leniency, saying that he is a father of 4 and the sole breadwinner of the family and that his license had already been suspended for 18 months.

The judge imposed the maximum fine to Ong, noting that he was driving 111km/h above the speed limit of 90km/h
