A reckless rollerblader invaded the lanes of a busy expressway yesterday.

The unidentified man with no safety gear was filmed on a dash cam skating along an expressway entering KPE in the afternoon.

“I have … ROLLERBLADING on the expressway heading into the KPE and videoing his escapade in the process. I’m so done,” a Timothy Sim wrote yesterday.

The man, who only wore glasses as his protective gear, hogged the left lane while cars tried to avoid him. 

This was not the first time someone was caught skating on the expressway. On Friday evening, a man was cruising through the Bukit Timah expressway. It was not clear if it was the same man.

Only motor vehicles are allowed on Singapore’s expressways. 

Apparently, public roads are now deemed recreational spaces. In January, another man was seen playing hockey on an open road.
