Singapore – A motorcyclist was out to get lunch when a “friendly” Traffic Police stopped beside him to chat, showing curiosity towards his mounted camera.
A motorcyclist took to short video creation app TikTok on Wednesday (Sept 8) to share an experience with a TP officer.
“What a friendly guy! Ride safe and see you around,” wrote TikToker wassupppphoho in his caption.
The video began with the rider heading out to lunch.
When he reached a junction, he noticed the “king of the road” approaching.
A few moments later, a TP officer on a motorcycle appeared behind him.
The rider could be seen glancing at the officer from his side mirror.
The TP officer then moves closer to the rider and has a chat with him about his camera.
Once the lights turned green, the officer was off.
With over 27,000 likes and 300 comments on his clip, members from the online community shared mixed responses to the experience.
Many noted they were nervous just by watching the clip and seeing the TP come closer.
“Confirm in your heart, ‘pls dun stop beside me pls dun stop beside me,’” said a TikTok user.
“I thought you meant a cyclist when you said king of the road,” added another TikTok user.
Meanwhile, many others were also curious about the camera the TikToker used. He confirmed it was Insta360.
While spotting a TP officer can make one’s heart skip a beat initially, netizens mentioned that many are actually friendly.
For example, a motorcyclist was pulled over by an officer earlier this year but for different reasons.
The officer applauded the rider’s full safety gear and presented him with a gift for being a role model to other bikers./TISG
