The Facebook post said: "Bus stopped, predicted green light wrongly and decided to just beat red light. Dangerous bus driver."

In response to the video, one netizen commented that he has lodged a police report.

Mr Vincent Gay, deputy managing director of SMRT Buses, told Stomp in response to queries: "We do not condone unsafe driving behaviour. The safety of our commuters and other road users is our top priority.

"We investigated the incident and have taken disciplinary action against the bus captain.
