SINGAPORE - A taxi driver was jailed for four weeks on Thursday for punching a motorcyclist twice in the face.

Lee Peng Geok, 49, pleaded guilty to hurting Mr Albert Goh Ban Chye, 43, at the junction of Henderson Road and Telok Blangah Way on Feb 25 this year.

A court heard that Mr Goh was riding his motorcycle and had made a U-turn along Henderson Road when Lee, who was approaching him along the road from the opposite direction, sounded his horn.

The rider had completed his U-turn when Lee sounded his horn some distance away, said Assistant Public Prosecutor Andrew Low.
