Just as she was about to switch lanes, a compassionate Malay woman driver from the car behind hers stepped out to assist.

This unexpected act of kindness left the female driver deeply moved.

However, the story took a turn when the Good Samaritan found herself unable to pass through the toll booth with the same card she used to help.

The video ended without showing how she eventually managed to get through.

“Bless the kind-hearted people. I’ve also helped a stuck car pay the toll before.”

However, not all reactions were positive. Some criticized the original motorist for not returning the favor after receiving help.

“I personally think that after she helped you, you should have waited to help her. You just drove off. If it were me, I would have turned on my hazard lights and waited for her to pass before leaving,” one netizen suggested.

Netizens also pointed out the technical reason behind the Good Samaritan’s difficulty in passing through the toll gate.

“She couldn’t pass because the card was used twice in a short period. One card cannot be used multiple times within a short time frame,” explained a commenter.
