Whether it’s taking time to call the number on the windscreen or honking endlessly, it’s a downright nuisance for everyone. But what happens when there is no number, and multiple honks don’t work?

This was exactly what went down near Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. X user Jehan Bakar shared a clip on the incident which has since gone viral. In the video, a RapidKL double decker bus can be seen attempting to squeeze its way around a corner.

And, the culprit? A Blue Perodua Bezza car, parked on the oncoming lane! As a result, the bus was unable to move forward at all, as the vehicle had blocked off half the road.

Luckily, a group of passersby decided to take it upon themselves. Several men quickly rushed to move the car to the opposite side of the road. Soon, they managed to move the car out of the way, allowing the bus to pass through.

When yet another bus experienced the same problem. the men had to readjust the car nearer to the sidewalk. Eventually, the authorities arrived to tow the car away, putting an end to the dilemma. While many praised the pedestrians for their quick actions, users also expressed annoyance at the illegally parked car.
