SMRT has terminated the contract of a relief driver who was behind the wheel of a taxi, seen swerving into the lane of a motorcyclist. 

It posted a note on the matter on Facebook a day after the video was filmed from the dashboard of a nearby car. 

Mr Alan Kong had posted the video on his Facebook page on Tuesday, and wrote that he witnessed "road rage involving a taxi and a bike." 

The video is 23 seconds long, but Mr Kong said the incident happened for "a good five minutes", with the cabbie "trying to make the biker hit him". 

The video has been shared nearly 2,000 times as of Wednesday night. 

SMRT said it investigated the case immediately after netizens had highlighted it to them.
