    Mogok!!

    A little bird told me over the weekend, taxi's in the Klang Valley will be going on a strike on the 30th and 31st of this month. When checked again this morning, it is almost confirmed as the authorities are yet to come to terms with taxi associations.

    So, if you guys are planning to take the taxi to the airport on these days, just watch out for any development..........

    The authorities cannot ignore their demands forever. If they "give in".. rakyat suffer some. If they "don't give in"..its buying time..consumers will suffer more in later. In any agreement, its the rakyat who'll suffer either way by more cost or invonvenience..
    Already the image of taxi cabs here are already bad but unfortunately tolerated. Its riddled with rogues who are NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF SERVING THE PUBLIC WITH EXCELLENCE but flers taking advantage of ANY situation for a quick buck IN THE NAME OF SURVIVAL!..THAT'S the mindset! Revoke those rogue's licences immediately..I say to improve their integrity and image of this country's transportation services. To me..they akin to the Mafia!.

    As for KLIA..another half baked project that's not entirely benefitting the rakyat at large.. go to & fro there, your inflated fuel costs and toll, suggested public transport.. expensive like hell!. I think its consequences is bleeding the already poor rakyat. Thank you 1980's gahmen for great ideas to bleed the rakyat again.

    Hi Guys. Long time no see. I give you guys a suggestion. If all the taxi low went mogok, we travel around KL that day, pick up passenger and make more money for Raya. Hahaha. Ok?.

    Taxi fare never revised for so long.

    Permit not given to individuals.

    Too many laws governing taxi drivers, ie: cannot step out of taxi (be seated in the taxi at all times), black pants and white shirt, too many blocks by JPJ harrassing taxies. Fine for not conforming to rules as mentioned...

    I always feel sad when I look at some of the drivers. When you look at their photos stuck to the id card, they look so fleshy and fresh. But when you turn to look at the present person, he's so frail and tired and ....... .

    There are bad aples in their midst but most of them are out there for an honest earning. If the authorities can stop issuing permits to companies and give it to the drivers, their livelihood can be better.

    Your points are quite valid, but the current system is due for a total overhaul and revamp. It takes 2 hands to clap..the authorities, represented by JPJ and PDRM..whom I believe are operating like 2 different entities, different sets of rules and problems of co-operation. The taxi cab association on the other hand..WHAT THE HECK ARE THEY DOING to help or improve the situation?.. Anyone witnessed them doing anything?. All thats reported is they act like representatives only for table talk and God knows what happens after those episodes. They should turun padang, check on cheats, rogue cabbies, act swiftly on complaints and so on.. instead, I'm thinking they're like toothless and fangless unseen or unheard and appear only when there's money talk.
    Its a rotten culture going on..
    We're talking KL or Klang Valley taxi cab services here.. very much like our neighbor in S'pore..that head of JPJ don't know how to compare ah?..He should damn well disguise himself and turun padang..take a few trips by taxi and experience for himself what any of the rakyat or tourist could experience.
    I bet my bottom dollar, he'll meet up with a fair share of rogue cabbies if he tests the situation for just a week during peak hours.

    Then they should give up being a taxi driver or an owner and take another proffession to earn more.

    Some of them exploit the tourisits and bring a bad image.
    Many of them are doing well othewise they wont be clamouring for licences and permits.

    Even in religion, there are those who fall or allow to be seduced by the dark side. As you have rightly said, some..., not all

    Not true. Most are left with little choice. They are not as blessed as you with cash to plan for their retirement. Thus, they have to slog and it's like a 'no choice' road for them. But in truth, they are suppose to get individual permits. Not some 'sewa beli' deal where they must drive 30 days in a month, come rain or shine. That is unfair since their permits are given to influential personalities who in return rents the permits for easy money. Where is the justice in that??

    Ok Lord, you have soft heart for them so be it for some good reasons. I am not going to start a debate..i have a heart for some of the good apples..personally i do know some of the taxi drivers who are honest and they find it difficult to make ends meet. But not the rascals who wait at KTM to cheat innocent passengers..cheers mate.
