Gangster Driver SHC8492A Whitesands Mall

On 27/12/2011, Ms Azira informed the following:
Is about a Comfort Blue Taxi who simply don't deserve to have neither a Taxi License nor a Driving License. As me and my fiancee is a staff of a well known Driving Centre in Singapore we sure know our road rules VERY well. Furthermore, my fiancee is a qualified license driving school instructor.

We exit Whitesands and was stopped at the slop up for about 3 to 5 minutes as cars exiting the mall are being obstructed by the issue I brought up of cars parked and stopped to alight the NSF candidates.

After exiting the mall, as its a one way road, we turn left to exit to the main road. We pass by a bend, which is connected to a small loading and unloading delivery bay. The delivery bay have a STOP line at the exit. But taxi SHC 8482 A came DASHING out speeding in, without STOPPING, checking or having his signal light on. There's a silver car on the left lane and our car is on the right lane and
as it's a bend a lorry is closely right behind me on the right. The taxi nearly knocked my car. My fiancee have to jam break the car as the taxi nearly caused an accident. I am relief that i have a professional driver with me, try imagine having my new driver friend with me and having me at the passenger sit. I'll be crushed with injuries right now!
BUT, being that way he still force his taxi in our way.

I was sitting at the passenger sit and with anger i wind down the window to scold him and asked him to stop. He die-die tried to squeeze in as u can see in my attached Picture 6.The picture was taken from the Passenger sit and you can see that the taxi is in the middle of the road in between my car and the silver car on the lef

After seeing me scolding him (taxi Driver) he stopped, the lorry behind us gave way for us to go forward, not giving any space for the taxi to go in and the lorry when through after us.

Soon after exiting, the taxi speed up and CATCH UP at a lane next to us and stopped at a traffic light. As we are reaching the traffic light for a stop, LESS THEN 0.5 METERS THE TAXI SWERVE AND CHANGED LANE AND CAME IN TO OUR LANE AT A VERY LAST MINUTE!!!!!!! AND YET again we have to sudden break as there's cars behind us. Picture 7 the cab is in-front of us.

I regret to say that this taxi driver surely need to re-sit for his driving test to learn over the RULES AND REGULATIONS on road to make him recognize the road markings and road signs provided. Not just having Taxi Refresher course that is simply sit and listen but to have a theory test at the end of each course to make sure that Taxi Driver remember the Dos and don'ts on the road so taxi drivers won't be a hazard to other drivers.

This is not the first time me and my fiancee have issues with taxi drivers but this is to the extend that i totally need to bring this up to all of your attention.

To Comfort Taxi, to me this taxi driver totally brings SHAME towards the logo of his cab. Comfort Delgro is the biggest transportation provider here in Singapore and provides superb service but having a taxi driver with no driving knowledge?? How did he become a taxi driver at the first place??

This is yet another example of taxi drivers who behave as though they own the roads. Nonchalant and careless attitude towards other road users seem to be the norm. You should consider lodging a complaint through LTA's feedback website as our collective experience shows that this is the most efficient way of ensuring corrective action is taken.


  1. how come i don't see any praise for taxi drivers?only complaints?this blog has become a taxi bashing site!discrimination!!ur a taxi hater!pls see the pt of view fr them!most of them become taxi drivers cos all other jobs taken by foreigners!then they have to pay rental at least $100 per day!this is the only job u gotta pay the employer first in order to earn money at the end of the day!if only enough to put food on the dinner table for the family!pls have some sympathy for them!

  2. So people doing hard work are allowed to behave horribly? The you won't complain if the hawker throws the plate of food onto your table or make you wait unnecessarily long? How about the road sweeper who blocks your vehicle while he is doing his job? Would you quietly accept such behaviour since they are doing this job as a last resort? Being desperate or leading a hard life is one thing, that does not excuse being unprofessional. Also, can they earn more by behaving like that?

    BTW, we publish all reports as we receive them, including positive experiences. Unfortunately, there are more negative experiences than positive ones.

  3. unfortunately there is hardly any redress for the taxi driver against unreasonable or abusive passengers!a taxi driver status is even lower than a maid's!they don't get respect and they are always being accused of cheating the passenger even though it wasn't the case eg taking longer route 90 % of the time!comparing one's job to another is liked comparing an apple to an orange!it's of different situations and different scenarios!don't try to change to a different situation altogether!sometimes the passengers themselves tried to provoke the taxi driver by sarcastic remarks,challenge them or simply accusing them without any proof!just recently a driver was bash on the head with a beer bottle cos he accuse him of taking a longer route!
