    CVLB out of ammunition in war against rogue taxi drivers

    http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...244&sec=nation

    What a load of CROCK !! If they are in charge... just seize the taxi and the driving license, take it off the road... and see if the taxi driver can drive without a license or a taxi...

    Correct, correct, correct. But there is always a good reason why they are not doing it and everybody knows what that good reason is.

    Singapore is a fine example of how to do it. Just fine them and fine them hard.

    yeah... cos' 50% the freaking taxis or the permits belong to some politically connected BIGSHOT or their cronies.... and the other 40% belongs to some company that is associated to some bigshot who probably are some politician. Left the 10% that are actual owners/drivers.... of these taxis...

    And like what CLVB indirectly said.... they out of ammo - dunno who to tembak !

    in case you missed the circus last week

    from http://rantingsbymm.blogspot.com/200...ll-change.html

    “Those days, an application for a taxi permit would require the endorsement of an Umno branch or division chief...” said Bukit Mertajam party chief Datuk Musa Sheikh Fadzir.

    Umno Boleh!

    if they want to do it, they will. imagine, get caught and still dare to over charge the officer. They seems think that they are well protected. Just cancel off their permit, suspend their driving licence..

    Oh boy, CVLB says they cannot handle the taxi problems.

    Earlier on, the POLIS said they couldn't handle the crime problems in Chow Kit and the place ain't safe enough to have their police base so they are looking for a safer location.

    What next? Five Pakistani drivers caught driving taxis in Kuala Lumpur, now that is one big joke.

    CVLB is part of the Ministry of Entrepreneur and Cooperatives Development - and their mandate is to help "entrepreneurs" operate public transport.

    CVLB can sell permits. They do not know anything else. Hence the push for more independence, more owner-operators, and more permits - despite all the problems. Remember that only last year they were selling more permits to increase the number of taxicabs in KL to 23,000?

    It makes me laugh - why is the CVLB surprised that the system is out of control? They are encouraging entrepreneurs and some entrepreneurs have figured out that it is better to let people drive while they sit back and pick up the profits - and they have figured out that the regulations are pathetic and the enforcers toothless.

    That some of those drivers might be foreign workers - does the CVLB really care? The so-called entrepreneurs are happy since they make the money and do no work, and the drivers are happy to get jobs. Personally, I dont care if the cat is black or yellow - so long as it catches the mice. And similarly

    CVLB is unhappy because they look weak and pathetic - so they announce in a press conference how weak and pathetic they are - in the hopes that we will give them a little sympathy???

    Let's put them out of their misery instead!

    Cheers, m

    ps. if you go to Carrefour in SS16 Subang Jaya you might notice that they moved the taxi stand right in front of the door to Carrefour.

    Now the taxi drivers are lined up in a nice row - rather than blocking the main road.

    Does it mean that service is better? Sorry, I dont know about that... but it looks nicer.

    pps. the best solution is to give control over taxi services to the local councils or a regional council - clearly the CVLB cannot handle things at a national level.

    JPJ has no say.

    Public transport in Malaysia is not the same as transport. Public transport - is for the sake of entrepreneurs. That is why the CVLB was moved to MeCD - an "UMNO" stronghold...

    JPJ is transport...transport is an "MCA" stronghold.

    divide and rule through inefficiency

    I always wonder why govt. and public want to control taxi so much, it is a service based business, don't like it just don't use it.

    er. so what do we use? No way there is enough room on KL roads for the 1.8 million cars that cross the MRRI every day.

    Actually, they should put a high cost on cars and let people come to KL by motorcycle. And why not introduce 3-wheel motorcycles for the disabled and those who are worried about stability and those who want to carry packages ?

    Bad idea! More bad upbringing of Mat/Mark/Mani Rempit!!!
    Imagine this respectable SJaya community with holier-than-thou Tincanners, running down these newbies? SJ fella are rich and can afford the tincans lah...jam? never mind. Ada gaya mah! hahahahahaah!

    The handicapped fella-bikers are actually now riding cubchai with 2 extra trainer-kinda wheels.

    The archaic laws do not allow motorcycle to have a side car...exceptions are given to the hawkers with jpj approved (sic) sidecart enabling them to carry/sell air tebu/pisang goreng/tong-shui/rojak etc...

    So u can have the most canggih sidecar from Milwaukee but u cannot attached it to your precious 2wheels.

    I know, and it breaks my heart.

    Id love to ride a motorcycle all the time if the safety issue was taken care of...Im sure that many other people would do the same.

    The only reason why I didnt ride in Canada was the safety issue - motorcycles are less common on the road so drivers are less aware and then you have the issues with rain and snow and ice.

    Here, drivers are more aware and they go around and avoid you - and if you are a driver who lights up properly and is easy to see and predictable and safe then no worries.

    Funny thing - in Canada motorcycles are not allowed to share lanes or ride between cars - legally they have to take up the whole lane.

    If you have this motorcycle would you feel safer?



    Or we could go for the TATA nano or the new BMW Isetta

    As for the taxis...

    As for the taxis...

    TRANSIT has a pretty good idea. Since the CVLB has admitted that their best is just not good enough, we have to get them to close shop.

    So we divide taxi service into 2 categories - Teksi Berkupon and Teksi Bermeter

    Teksi Bermeter is regulated by the CVLB and operates as a meter taxi. The numbers are limited and the basic flagfall fare is RM3 or RM4 - in other words we expand the Teksi Premier.

    The other taxis are Teksi Berkupon - Taxis that must wait at and return to recognized taxi stands (KTM/LRT station, local estate/taman, etc).

    The teksi berkupon would regulated by the local authorities and each taxi stand managed by an officer from the local authority.

    Passengers buy coupons from the issuing officer and can pay in cash or using Touch N Go instead of paying the taxi driver directly.

    Prices would be determined by the local authority in consultation with the area residents.

    Any feedback?

    Cheers, m
