Taxi drivers and car drivers have been spotted loitering outside Orchard Towers touting their services for a ride to the CBD area for a fixed fare. Yup, fixed fare. They don’t go by meter.
The cost? A whopping $35, that’s double the cost of how a typical ride would cost. This has since sparked an outrage amongst honest taxi-drivers.
These drivers typically target foreigners. The authorities have tried to stop them but to no avail.
If found guilty, the driver will receive 12 demerit points and a fine of $500.
