Anchorvale Ah Lian Run Road Without Paying S$8.15 Taxi Fare

A taxi uncle has accused an Ah Lian of fare evasion after he sent her to Anchorvale.

The driver, CK Tiong, said that the ah lian who boarded his taxi at Sengkang East Way was young and slim-built.

She alighted at Block 311A Anchorvale Road after the 5-minute ride and the fare cost S$8.15.

However, the ah lian refused to pay, accusing the driver of making an extra turn so that the fare would be higher than normal.

She called the police, but slipped away after that.

Said the taxi uncle:

“While waiting for the police, she ran off. Bodoh to the max!”

Tiong left the taxi meter running while he waited for the police to arrive and eventually, the fare ran up to S$21.70 during that 45-minute wait.

Police officers called the ah lian several times, however she refused to “settle” the problem.

They advised the taxi driver to lodge a police report regarding the incident.

The incident took place last Saturday (9 Sep) at around 8.45pm.

Tiong has warned other taxi drivers to be careful about accepting the ah lian as a passenger.

Under the Public Transport Council Act, those who evade fares can be fined up to S$1,000.

Repeat offenders can be fined up to S$2000 and jailed for up to 6 months.
