more leaving cabs without paying up. source : http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/transport/story/more-leaving-cabs-without-paying-20150204

issue being discussed : many passengers are not paying for cabs and treats it as a free ride. if the driver is unable to catch the passanger or acquire any personal information, he would drop the case. this would be a huge loss for the driver if all his passangers were like that. there are reports being made everyday and about 98 cases were not pursued on because the taxi drivers decided to drop the case. a taxi driver also stated that a passanger straight up told him she was not going to pay for the ride, he finds that if this situation can happen, it is useless to have a sticker against fare evasion on the taxi.
if this were to happen in singapore : this is happening in singapore and even with warnings, some people are still not paying for their fares.

  1. I totally agree with you. There was once when I saw a passenger and the taxi driver quarreling because the passenger refuse to pay up due to the bumpy ride and the driver's black face. I feel that passengers should pay up for the service and it will affect the taxi driver's business of this continues.
