SINGAPORE - A group of people celebrating their Jubilee weekend at the Marina Bay area helped ease traffic congestion - by moving a car.

The car in question was parked by the road, but it was in the way of a bus, service number 402.

With shouts of "one, two, three", the group managed to shift the car nearer to the sidewalk to let the bus through.

The video, which was posted on Facebook page "Fabrications About The PAP", has been viewed more than 10,000 times and shared more than 150 times.

According to the post, the owner of the car could not be found.

Many Facebook users lauded the effort. One of them was Anthony C Yip who said: "Fantastic effort, guys! Great job!"

 

This latest clip is reminiscent of a video that went viral after a group of people came together to lift a truck off a South Korean man pinned underneath after an accident on July 22.

Sixteen of the rescuers were given awards for their public spiritedness by the Singapore Civil Defence Force.

There was heavy traffic congestion in the Marina Bay area as people headed to the area to watch the Republic of Singapore Air Force Black Knights perform.

Police sent out an advisory earlier today for members of the public to take public transport to the area.
