A reader has contributed a post by a frustrated taxi driver who met with a rude and demanding foreigner while on the roads yesterday. According to the taxi driver, a female passenger boarded his taxi at Club Street and told him to take her to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal.The drive took a total of 22 minutes from 1.30PM to 1.52PM. However, upon reaching her destination, the foreigner tried to blame the taxi driver for “driving too slow” ad refused to pay him any fare. The taxi driver was left with no choice but to call the police, who eventually convinced her to pay or risk a trip to the police station.
