Facebook user Jude Chan shared about how he had flagged down a cab from Boat Quay to head to Choa Chu Kang.
The taxi driver apparently thought he was drunk and tried to take advantage of him, driving around the west side; from Jurong West to Lakeside to Bukit Batok West, in an alleged attempt to drive the taxi fare up.
The passenger then confronted the driver, “if I was really drunk, I would’ve paid more than $50.” To which the taxi driver then said “I admit I am wrong, but you just pay me whatever is shown on the meter”.
The passenger then told him “how about I give you directions to the police station?”
Here is what he captioned his post
uncle thought I was drunk, flag a cab from boat quay to cck. Ended up bringing me for a ride around west.. Jurong West – Lakeside – Bukit batok west …
with third party book least you would have a fix price, flag a cab at your own risk of you drink too much..
Next time ask for receipts then make complaint to LTA bring along with receipts as evidence settled
Just feedback to Comfort and LTA about it. Let them investigate and take action if he is found guilty.
End up how much is the fare?? Got write in not?? This type really not honest
CDG TD some more, throw CDG’s face. Should have suspend his vocational license
There are many cab drivers like this !!! Taxi uncles very good at doing this , i get only these kinda people all e time , end up fighting n scolding the driver. Dun cheat us la just to earn that extra we dun pluck money from tree !!!!
