KULAI (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A 90-second video clip of a Perodua Myvi going against traffic flow near the Kulai rest stop of the North-South Expressway has gone viral.

In the video recorded by another road user and uploaded on Thursday morning (June 1), the car is seen going against the flow of traffic on the north-bound side of the highway in the Malaysian state of Johor.
