SINGAPORE – SMRT has fired a relief taxi driver on Wednesday, following its investigations into a video that was shared on social media which showed him driving recklessly.

In a 23-second clip posted by Facebook user Alan Kong, a Toyota Prius taxi can be seen swerving twice into the lane of a motorcycle in a reckless manner.

SMRT said investigations found a relief driver was behind the wheel of the taxi involved, and they had terminated his contract.

“The incident shown on the video is regrettable,” SMRT said in a Facebook update.

SMRT said the taxi driver assigned to the cab was not involved and will continue to drive it.
