A video capturing an Audi driver intimidating a pregnant lady on Jalan Johor Jaya, Johor last Friday, 8 November has gone viral
Based on the four-minute dashcam video, the lady was seen going through a turn while a white Audi wanted to cut into her lane without putting on its left signal.
“Balagak kau. Kau signal pun tak bagi. Pergi mampus lah (Arrogant fella. You are not even putting on your signal. You can go to hell),” the lady was heard saying.
After going through the turn, the Audi emerged again and charged to the front of her car

An altercation ensued after the Audi driver alighted the car.
The male driver tried to get the lady to admit that it was her fault at the turn

“Okay, so now, do you admit that you are at fault,” the man asked the lady, to which she responded with another question.
“But did you put on your signal?” the lady asked.
“Well, I did not put on the signal. I was wrong. But you knew I was coming (into the lane),” the man retaliated.
The man repeatedly called the lady ‘stupid’ and shouted at her furiously.
When the man got back to his vehicle, he reversed his vehicle and started revving the engine loudly
The lady then made a phone call, where she was heard crying in fear while relating her encounter with the road bully.
