A frustrated internet user went to social media to complain about picky taxi drivers asking for the passenger’s destination before accepting the trip. “Renting a taxi on Friday night can be officially announced as only for long journeys,” wrote Facebook page Complaints Singapore member Autumn flower on Saturday (May 14).

The network owner said that at least 50 hired taxis passed by on Friday night while waiting in Tiong Bahru. “Stream it, I understand it’s not my day. Have to wait.” After waiting for half an hour, a free taxi finally arrived. The driver asked the passenger for the destination, which was Serangoon. “He did not even answer properly and just closed the window and flew away.” wrote Autumn Flower. “What is the attitude of some taxi drivers?”

The network owner continued that on weekdays he just stood in the walkway and taxi drivers stopped and asked if he wanted a taxi or not.

“When busy, shows too much attitude!” “It’s not time for a change of shift. They just want to rent the drunks with long distance on Friday night!”

Members of the online community noted that this behavior is quite common, although not acceptable.

“Hope this will remind everyone of the days when private rental cars did not exist then and to appreciate what we have now,” wrote Facebook user Anth Hco.

“The last time, taxis really had to wait super long before they got one, and when they finally arrived, our destination was not the place the taxi drivers wanted and have to wait again.”

At the same time, the network user Nur Nur emphasized that taxi drivers are not allowed to ask for the passenger’s destination if they do not change shifts.

“One’s change can not go to the taxi rank. These are specified rules from the LTA (Land Transport Authority). The next time you come across this, file a complaint to the LTA because this taxi driver did not follow the rules. ”

It is a crime for taxi drivers to refuse to pick up and ferry passengers without valid reasons. It has a piecework amount of 300 S $, six disadvantages, as well as a possible two-week revocation of the professional license, LTA said in a media response during 2019.

“This rule is clearly worded for all taxi drivers when they get their taxi licenses,” in LTA. / TISG
