      Where got bluff, no lah, bluffing is not telling you the truth, GRAB tell you the truth 50jobs $500…blah blah…true mah, where got bluff.

      So dun bluff yourself, it either you join in or you opt out, anything that provide incentives will get lower fares + 10% cut, so if all 50 jobs you get $10 fare each,
      if use normal taxi fare and surcharges, you might get $14, so you lost out $4

      So let do the math
      10% of $500 is only $50
      $4 lost x 50 is $200

      then hor, Plus lost of booking fees $3.70 average…x50…=$185

      You got figure out if you gain or not gain…or being used

      There is a reason why pple said, in Singapore, nothing is free one

      True!They cut u n saya u later!

      My personal experience/ thoughts after 5 wks of taxi driving.

      Taxi driving is not as simple as i thought

      Driving leisurely is different from driving to earn income

      Less quality sleep

      Body aching

      Boring

      Stressful 

      Must be on road for long hrs to make a living 

      literally no offdays

      I am fortunate that my past jobs are more relaxing so unable to take the hardship

      Freedom and a few nice encounters with pax are the only thing I personally enjoyed

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Throw liao?nevermind,next time can drive again!Even i as a delivery driver for 25 yrs,when i start as taxi driver...i also stress!I going to quit at first day after drive 4 3 hrs n park at Upper Seletar Reservoir!BUT why other can,I CAN'T???So i carry on for 4 yrs ( i regret never join taxi trade early,earning is:)now:(but still decent earning)after i got high blood n cdg X1 mdt problem...i throw n rest till now!B4 i start driving taxi,i use about 6 month learn n read the forum about taxi driving...This must thanks to the Poolman n the gang n all the taxi forum ppl..:):):)!

      After CNY, taxi companies might have to retrench their staffs…from DRO to companies’ car service technician..and all those lau kok kok re employed employees would most probably show the door/gate out.

      As taxi on the road dwindled, why need so many useless staffs walking here and there.

      Please lah, this one is not regarding TDs, it is the taxi companies problem.

      Throwing keys is as normal as doing your shitting everyday, nothing wrong with people wishes to change their way of life. Even working people can resign from a company if things are not looking good, then search for greener pasture.

      TD deserve what sympathy??? TD dun play with emotion one lah, can drive, drive, cannot drive, throw key and do others, no taxis can die meh?? Anytime can also come back to drive taxi, maybe as new, got half rental….lols

      Whether pax happy or not is not TD problem, we owe no one a living, nor does anyone owe us a living. Life goes on.

      But I just want to warn these paxs that the day taxis become obsolete and PHV took over the road, is the day they will be paying very high price fare for a trip, and it will also be the day PHV rejecting them.

      No problem with taxi driver,we can anytime jump ship to phv  n carry on reject them..Hahaha!

      One thing I learned from him is SAVING. He said “to save with real cash is very difficult for TD, therefore, learn to save thru cashless, try not to draw out the cashless but of cos you have to check, after a few years of accumulation, it can grow and before you know it, it can help when you need money or that you can use as part of your retirement saving.”

      And I did that, so till now, I think got 6 figures amount inside UOB, but sometimes he also taught us bad stuff, like cycling at joo chiat…

      cycling at joo chiat is good healty exercise!

      Taxi Company will not act for you.  You have to help yourself. Your case was in 2015.  A bit too late to fight now.  Let me give you my own case.

      I was at a cross junction turning right.  The right turn green arrow was in my favour.  As I was turning, the other car going straight in the opposite direction beat the red light and bang into me. I did not have any video footage as the bloody Sonata camera did not work.  The old cameras will fail when there is an impact.  I tested it myself when I took the camera out.  Shake the camera a bit and the video recording stopped.

      Without video evidence, I was 100% liable as I was the turning vehicle. I had to pay $2,000 to Comfort.  What I did immediately was to get the video footage from LTA and make a police report.  They have the j-eyes or junction cameras.  I had to write to LTA and called them as well.  Luckily, they had the footage of the accident and said they will pass it to TP.

      Then I had to call TP to make sure they get the footage from LTA.  Chased TP everyday to make sure they handle my case promptly.  I also went to GIA and paid to get the other party's accident report.  True enough, the other party denied everything in his report.

      It took TP almost six months to settle the case.  In the end, they charged the other driver in court under Section 65(b) for inconsiderate driving.  The culprit pleaded guilty and TP sent me a letter to inform me.  Only then with that letter can I go back to Comfort to reclaim back my $2,000.

      With that TP letter, Comfort won the case and claimed loss of income for me.  Only recently after more than a year is my case fully settled.

      In your case, you should have immediately requested for SMRT or SBS Transit for video footage as all MRT exits and drop offs has CCTV to deter illegal parking. Still you can ask for it, but a bit too late now.

      GOOD experience sharing!
