Uncle, carrying a child does not automatically give you the right to jaywalk as you please.

Stompers Regina, Edwin and Michael alerted Stomp to a video posted by Tan Wee Boon on Facebook of a jaywalking 'pai kia' uncle carrying a child confronting him along Boon Lay Place, opposite Boon Lay Food Centre. 

In the video, which is circulating on Facebook, a middle-aged man carrying a child can be seen gesturing angrily at the driver. In the middle of the confrontation, a woman, who seems to be his wife, tries to stop the argument but he refuses and instead walks closer to the driver.

He eventually concedes and crosses the road.

The video, which was posted yesterday (May 8), has since been shared more than 1,600 times.

In his post, Wee Boon said:

"K** Uncle, you want to die, do it urself. 


"And also is this the way you f****** teach your child, that you holding.

"Wake up your stupid mind. Don't know how to teach don't give birth or help other to look after child. YOU F*****..."

According to the Road Traffic Act, jaywalking is defined as crossing the road within 50 metres of a pedestrian crossing. The crossing was around 20 metres away from where the trio crossed, according to the Roads.sg Facebook post.

Jaywalkers can receive a fine of $20 on the spot. They can also be charged and fined up to $1000, or jailed up to three months.

Repeat offenders may be fined up to $2,000 or jailed up to six months.
