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.
