Getting stuck at toll booths is no fun, especially when you’ve tried scanning your radio frequency identification (RFID) tag several times.
One frustrated driver took matters into his own hands by breaking the toll boom gate after two failed attempts in getting the toll booth to detect his RFID tag.
Breaks toll boom gate
In a 23-second video posted to the Facebook group ‘我们是马来西亚人 We are Malaysians‘ on Oct 12, it showed the driver reversing his car twice to scan his RFID tag at the toll booth.
When both attempts failed, the driver got down from his car in a huff and proceeded to break the toll boom gate with his bare hands before driving off.
The incident is believed to have occurred at the Sunway Toll Plaza.
