With the increasing convenience of recording videos on our phones and rising popularity of in-vehicle cameras, it has become easier and more common for netizens to stand up for the wronged and bring societal rogues to justice.

Be it an argument between commuters on the train, or the inconsiderate behaviour of a road tyrant, with just the press of a button, the incident can be filmed and instantly posted online. The more controversial the act, the more viral the video, with furious netizens swooping in to condemn the acts.

Some of these viral videos have not only attracted the attention of the media but also aided the police in cracking cases, such as "Honda Civic road bully" Quek Zhen Hao, who was today fined and disqualified from driving.

Here's a look back on some of these high profile cases.
