A heated argument between two drivers recently caught the attention of netizens recently as a woman believed to be a doctor was seen screaming hateful comments to another driver in a road rage incident.
The heated exchange is believed to be sparked after she was honked at for making a u-turn at a traffic light junction.
The incident was posted by Twitter user @Fadzmin_ who first tweeted a dashcam video showing the sedan trying to make the turn in front of Hospital Serdang. In the video, it’s seen that the traffic light was green for him.
He told TRP that he was heading to MAEPS Serdang from Kajang.
In the post, he claimed that the perpetrator was a doctor and tagged the Communications and Multimedia Ministry and the Health Ministry, questioning the integrity of their staff.
@kkmm_gov @KKMPutrajay, does this reflect the behaviour of a doctor? The location is in Hospital Serdang. The way that she u-turn is hazardous to other road users and provoked excessively after that. Is it reasonable for a doctor to pray that others would be infected by Covid-19?@Fadzmin_ via Twitter
Expletive-laden road rage
In a follow up tweet, @Fadzmin_ showed a clip of the altercation with the woman spewing vile comments and curses, including praying that he gets infected with Covid-19.
The screaming match happened when both vehicles stopped further down the road at another traffic light.
In the thread, he also mentioned that the woman shouted at him while flailing a stethoscope showing that she’s a doctor.
He later explained to TRP that the tweet was posted as a lesson to other road users to take responsibility for their actions.
Whose fault is it?
Netizens were divided as to who was wrong in this issue with some blaming the municipality for not providing the parking space for cars to park, forcing drivers to park at the side of the road and block the flow of traffic.

Salah Majlis Perbandaran tak sediakan parking di tmpt lapang > byk kereta parking tepi jalan > kereta brader ni tak muat jalan ke kiri > kebetulan ada kereta nk uturn > jalan sempit > almost berlanggar > sesi2 berlawan hon sape paling kuat & kata2 kesat 🤷🏻♀️
Some also pointed out that the woman actually made an illegal u-turn as the traffic light only allows for vehicles to go straight.
Ni laluan ak balik keje putrajaya-serdang dlu. Brader tu betul. Its a green. Side doktor takleh buat uturn sbb hijau (tuk jalan terus) dan ad lagi satu side yg dlm vid ni org takkan perasan. Side kete nk kua dari hosp. Pun akan merah.— fdhlafrhn (@yayarlah) February 2, 2021
Others blamed @Fadzmin_ for not driving his vehicle properly and trying to make the incident viral.
So dekat 0:55 driver ni tak pandai drive juga ke? Apsal stay sampai dua lane, lagi satu, masa org tu uturn bukan muat je ke nak makan sikit jalan belah sana. Benda kecik je sebenarnya tapi dua dua baran. Penyudahnya semua benda nak viral. Dapat apa pun? Doa yg tak baik baik— Ana 🇲🇾🇲🇾🇲🇾 (@ladyanaaaaaa) February 2, 2021

Unkempt in both stories and appearance, Hakim loves tech but tech left him on read, previously he used to write about tall buildings and unoccupied spaces that he can't afford, and legend has it that he still can't afford it to this day
