A taxi driver has apparently been fined S$300 for refusing to pick up a passenger.
The incident took place on 24 Jan this year at about 8.40am, at the taxi stand in front of Admiralty MRT station.
Taxi uncle Jeffrey Ng shared online this saman letter he received for rejecting a passenger pickup “without reasonable excuse”.
He was also given 6 vocational demerit points.
Ng could have been fined up to S$1000 and jailed for up to 3 months for violating conduct of public service vehicles as a first-time offender.
Other taxi uncles (and aunties), be warned!
As for passengers, this is how you can sabo taxi drivers who pick and choose whether they want to ferry you – we don’t think “buay song with your jiao bin”, which is a look we tend to get, is a reasonable excuse.
