Recently, a car was caught tailgating to avoid paying toll and ends up rear-ending vehicle in front.
The vehicle in front had stopped on purpose in an attempt to stop the car behind from tailgating.

Mustain was driving the car when it was being tail-gated.

The Toyota Vios was following his car from behind closely so as not to pay tolls.
Even though it was clear that the driver of the Toyoto Vios was at fault, he had the cheek to scold Mustain for stopping suddenly.
‘Aggressive And Intimidating’
The tailgater faces a barrage of criticism from netizens for his behaviour.
