WHY LTA NEVER TAKE ACTION AGAINST TAXI DRIVERS WHO OBSTRUCT ROAD TO TAXI STAND

I need the LTA to go near taxi stands and fine taxi drivers queuing at the taxi stands, as much as they don't like others to use their taxi stands, whenever the taxi stands states " 2 taxis only" you will see snaking queue o taxis queuing around there to wait for passengers, and this causes obstruction to traffic! This is a common sight at Jurong Point, Blk 109 Bukit Purmei and public taxi stands at MRT stations and CBD.

ENGINEER: BLAMING MOBILE NETWORK IS A BULLSH*T EXCUSE BY SMRT

As a trained engineer working with radio transceivers, this excuse by SMRT is bullshit. Even if there is an interference of the same frequency band, the source has to come from a similar industrial-grade emitter and it is impossible for it to be operated via a portable miniaturized device powered with DC batteries (SMRT can blame alien technology if otherwise).
