Cabby 'dumped' me on roadside in heavy rain because I had no change

Cabby 'dumped' me on roadside in heavy rain because I had no change



STOMPer Audrey says she was kicked out of a taxi in pouring rain because she did not have exact change for the fare. She claims the taxi driver even refused to drive her to shelter before insisting she get off.

STOMPer Audrey relates the case that had her fuming:

"Early this rainy morning (Jan 31) at 11.15am, I boarded a SMART White Volkswagen Touran taxi, along Toa Payoh Central Block 175.

"I gave the driver my destination and within two minutes, after a left turn, the driver asked if I had small change for the fare.

"The taxi driver, aged about 30-40, demanded that I alight immediately when he found out I did not have sufficient small change.

"He insisted that I alight along Toa Payoh Lorong 6, outside the interchange, where he had stopped abruptly.

"He is not supposed to set down passengers at unauthorized places. Also, the driver refused to drive me to the next sheltered waiting area, less than 15 metres away at Toa Payoh HDB Hub.

"His was rude and demanded I wait for another cab in the midst of heavy rain. The taxi driver apparently did not bother about a passenger's safety, supposedly the top priority of every road user.

"He had terminated the hiring of his taxi, requiring a passenger to leave his cab without a reasonable excuse, before the passenger is conveyed to destination.

"When I asked him for his vehicle number, he demanded that I see it for myself after I alight.

"In a threatening tone he suggested I take immediate action to complain about him.

"Since when were passengers under an obligation to give exact change?"

LOL she is sooo damn unlucky to meet such a driver.

There was once when i didnt have enough money for the whole trip and i requested to alight once the meter reached the amount of money i had. But the uncle took me by surprise, he said that he will bring me to my destination and i'll just need to pay him all that i have... such a kind soul isnt he?
