S$5,000 reward for info on 'arrogant cyclist'

SINGAPORE : Friends of a driver, who was taunted by an "arrogant cyclist", have put up a S$5,000 reward for information on his identity.

The driver, who only wanted to be known as Madam Tan, was making a left turn into Whitley Road from Thomson Road on February 10, when the cyclist dashed across the road in front of her car.

The 50-year-old manager “got a shock” but managed to stop her car in time to avoid hitting the cyclist. However, instead of moving off, the man, who was wearing a yellow jersey and sunglasses, stopped his bicycle and started gesturing at her.

The incident was captured on Madam Tan’s in-car camera and the matter was reported to the police.

When the police said a week later that the cyclist could not be identified, Madam Tan’s friends decided to take matters into their own hands and post a video of the incident on the Internet, along with a S$5,000 reward for information on the cyclist.

While it was not Madam Tan’s idea to post the clip or offer a reward, she does not think her friends are over-reacting.

“The danger is real. This arrogant cyclist posed a danger to himself, and worse, other road users,” she told a local paper.

“Had I not been able to stop in time, I would have to live with the guilt of hurting someone.”

The police have also posted an appeal for information on their Facebook page. Anyone with information can call the Traffic Police Information Hotline at 6547 0000 or email the information to SPF_Feedback_TP@spf.gov.sg. Information can also be submitted online at www.spf.gov.sg/CrimeStopper .
