Man gets driving ban, fine for speeding while out buying durians with friend during circuit breaker

SINGAPORE: A man who left his house to buy durians with a friend during the “circuit breaker”, when all social gatherings were banned, was later caught speeding when his friend filmed the speedometer and posted an incriminating clip on social media.

Nazar-Rushdy Nazar Rosly, 21, was fined S$3,000 and given a year’s driving ban in court on Monday (Nov 9).

He pleaded guilty to one count of dangerous driving and one charge of breaching a COVID-19 regulation by meeting an individual not from his household for a social purpose – to buy durians.

A third charge of leaving his home during the circuit breaker to meet another individual was taken into consideration.

The court heard that Nazar-Rushdy drove his car along the Central Expressway towards Seletar Expressway at 11.30pm on May 9 at a dangerous speed.

He drove at a speed of 160kmh on a stretch of road
