Stomper Nicholas almost collided into a TransCab taxi when the latter made a sudden lane switch after spotting a man flagging for it.

The incident happened Along Alexandra Road on July 4, 2017, at around 8.39am, with the entire process filmed by a dashboard camera on Nicholas's vehicle.

In the video, the cab was seen turning onto the main road, after exiting a building on the left.

It then entered the middle lane, while Nicholas vehicle stayed in the leftmost lane.

However, it suddenly made a switch onto the leftmost lane as the taxi driver spotted a customer flagging along the side of the road, almost resulting in a collision between the cab and Nicolas's vehicle.

Said Nicholas:

"The cabby just turned onto the leftmost lane without doing safety checks.

"It was so abrupt too.

"If there were any motorcycles in the area, an accident would have occurred.

"Please drive safely."
