Man jailed for road rage and fraud

31-year old sales manager Melvyn Chua Tong Ling was sentenced to four months jail after a severe case of road rage. Chua then reversed into the taxi and damaging it, before attempting to claim the taxi’s insurance.

The road rage began when Chua stopped to pick up his son on Ang Mo Kio Street 44. Since the 1 lane road was blocked,  taxi driver Ng Chor Foo had no choice but to overtake him by going onto the opposite lane. When Chua had tried to move off, the taxi cut in front of him, angering Chua.

Sensing the tension, Cabby Ng tried to avoid the road rage by driving away, only to find Chua chasing him and eventually overtaking him, before brake checking Cabby Ng. After both cars were stopped, Chua reversed into the cab and damaged both vehicles. When the Police arrived on the scene, Chua claimed the taxi crashed into him, whereas cabbie Ng said nothing of that sort had happened. They both went on to claim each other’s insurance. Chua’s lie was exposed when footage onboard the cab was reviewed

This incident occurred on the 10th of January last year at around 6:30 pm. Chua pleaded guilty to reckless driving, endangering the safety of both his son and the taxi driver and fraud. For that, he was sentenced to four months imprisonment.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
