These dangerous antics, which happened on the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway on Feb 1, were caught by the in-car cameras of the victim's car. The driver of the car posted the clip on YouTube.

The taxi driver was later sacked.

The cab was parked beside the woman's SUV and the cabby was standing on the driver's side of the car, gesticulating wildly at the woman inside.
