‘I had kids in the car’: Drivers stunned to encounter BMW going against traffic in Clementi, Singapore News

A simple mistake?

A BMW was caught on camera going against traffic flow at Clementi Avenue 4.

Sharing the video of the incident, Stomp contributor Chin said it happened on Tuesday (Sept 20) at around 6.30pm.

The dash cam footage shows the Stomp contributor and a van driving along a two-lane one-way road before coming to a stop when a car emerged from the left and turned towards the Stomp contributor.

“The black BMW was driving against the flow of traffic as if he owns the road,” said the Stomp contributor.

After the BMW drove off, both the van driver and the Stomp contributor seemed too stunned to continue forward.

The video ends with the van driver opening his vehicle door presumably to look at the BMW going the wrong way.

The Stomp contributor said: “The BMW continued driving towards the end of the road about which is 100m to 200m away, then turned into a car park.

“I was upset as I had kids in the car. We could have been injured if I was not alert.”

Did the BMW driver make a mistake or was it deliberate?

A photo from Google Maps below shows what the BMW driver saw before he made the right turn.

While there is no road sign in front of the driver to indicate that only left turns are allowed, there is a “turn left only” arrow on the road, which is possible to miss.
