Man takes his own sweet time jaywalking while on phone, gestures at drivers to stop for him

A pedestrian not only jaywalked by crossing the road when the traffic light was not in his favour, but also took his own sweet time in doing so.

A video of the man's behaviour was posted on Facebook by the SG Road Vigilante page.

According to the video's time-stamp, the incident took place on May 4 at around 6.54pm.

A Stomper said the incident occurred outside Lau Pa Sat.

The man, who was talking on his mobile phone, can be seen crossing the road despite oncoming vehicles, while the traffic light was still red for pedestrians.

Halfway through his stroll, the man also waved his left hand at two cars, seemingly telling the drivers to stop and let him pass first.
