A NUS professor have been fined the maximum amount of $5,000 and banned from driving for 13 months for driving his Maserati against traffic, just because he cannot wait in line for another car in front of him because that car was too slow.
But, although the law came down hard on him, the Professor, Henry Yeung Wai Chung, must thank his lucky stars that he will earn back his $5,000 in another week's of teaching at NUS, while 13 months from now, he will be able to drive his Maserati again. In the incident that was caught on camera, Yeung's action of overtaking the car, and subsequently a lorry ahead of him by using the opposite lane, caused him to lose control of his Maserati and mounted a kerb. This almost resulted in a head on collision with a taxi on the opposite lane, which managed to swerve at the last minute.
Yeung escaped a jail sentence, as dangerous driving also carries a maximum jail term of 12 months. NUS have not commented on this incident and the sentenced handed to its Porf as yet.
