Several passers-by are heard shouting at the driver, gesturing at him that he is going the wrong way and to turn around.

However, he seemingly ignores them and continues to drive against traffic with his headlights turned off.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said a 31-year-old man has been arrested for dangerous driving.

Police investigations are ongoing.

This is not the first time drivers have been caught on camera going against traffic.

In September, a 32-year-old woman was arrested for dangerous driving and had her licence suspended after she was caught driving her Mercedes-Benz against traffic in Chinatown.
