S'pore lady posts Instastory of 192 kmh joyride, inadvertently snitches out GrabHitch driver

Life comes at you fast.

The general speed limit for drivers in Singapore is 50 km/h.

Even on expressways, the limit is bumped up to a more respectable 70-90 km/h.

So doing double that might be a slight cause for concern.


Chloe Teo is a social media influencer on Instagram.

She was most recently in the news for exposing a man who was "5 timing" her.

This more recent expose might be less intentional.

Teo posted 3 Instagram stories (or Insta-stories) on the incident.

Here they are.

1. I think my hitch driver is crazy *laughs*

Teo also wrote "Best way to end the night, y'all I give him 20/10"

Which coupled with the laugh, points to "crazy" being used in the colloquial, fun, sense, rather than a mentally unstable slant.

2. Enjoying right? *laughs*

This video also sees Teo writing another synonym for crazy "F*cking insane, I love this fella."

Again, contextual clues, including further laughter, as well as the proclamation of loving "this fella" might point to the word insane coming from a place of mirth, rather than genuine anger,

3. *Laughs*

While Teo doesn't say anything at all in this video, this one might actually be the most damning.

Even the boisterous tagline attached to the video "If your man cannot do this (speeding) he's not worthy to be your man BAHAHAHAHAABBAHA" wasn't the main focus of the video.

Although the previous videos have shown her enjoying herself, possibly due to the speed that they were going, the exact speed was never established, until now.

192 km/h.

And if you listen carefully, the other passenger at the back can be heard asking if there were any cameras along the road.

Turns out it wasn't the street cameras they should have been worried about.

Netizens assemble

The first few posts were questioning the wisdom of posting the videos in the first place.

Then it took a shift in a legal direction.

Moral of the story: Don't drive at 192 km/h. If you have to drive at 192 km/h, don't take a video of it. If you have to take a video of it, perhaps don't post it on an Insta-story. If you have to, and so on and so forth.
