  1. Hi people what do your think of the impact on Cat A?
  2. I have college stay nearby and everyday he want a lift. I buy the car for my and family convenience. Really to much!
  3. Can buy from Taobao.. Wonder which local authority to approve if someone were to bring in to Singapore, LTA or CAAS? https://www.msn.com/en-xl/travel/other/chinese-flying-taxi-maker-ehang-sells-autonomous-passenger-drone-for-us-332000-on-taobao-as-nation-s-low-altitude-economy-takes-off/ar-BB1k9Kkg Chinese flying taxi maker EHang sells autonomous passenger drone for US$332,000 on Taobao as nation’s low-altitude economy takes off EHang's EH216-S electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle will be available in overseas markets at a suggested price of US$410,000 from April 1 The EH216-S, which was first announced in February 2018, has reportedly completed over 42,000 successful test flights in more than 14 countries Chinese flying taxi maker EHang is selling its EH216-S electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle on Alibaba Group Holding's Taobao marketplace, weeks before the Nasdaq-listed company makes the autonomous passenger-carrying aircraft available in overseas markets. Based in Guangzhou, capital of southern Guangdong province, EHang has put its EH216-S for sale at a unit price of 2.39 million yuan (US$332,000) on e-commerce giant Alibaba's primary domestic retail platform. Alibaba owns the South China Morning Post. In February, EHang announced that the EH216-S would be sold at a suggested retail price of US$410,000 outside the mainland from April 1. Do you have questions about the biggest topics and trends from around the world? Get the answers with SCMP Knowledge, our new platform of curated content with explainers, FAQs, analyses and infographics brought to you by our award-winning team. The ambitious domestic and international marketing campaigns show EHang's confidence in generating strong market demand, months after its self-developed EH216-S became the world's first recipient of a Type Certificate and Standard Airworthiness Certificate for pilotless eVTOLs. Those certifications were issued last October and December, respectively, by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). "This significant achievement has had a profound impact on our business, as it has sparked a surge in demand for our remarkable EH216-S," EHang founder, chairman and chief executive Hu Huazhi said last Friday, when the company released its latest financial results. "The market response has been overwhelmingly positive, leading to strong quarterly and yearly revenue growth." EHang reported fourth-quarter revenue of 56.6 million yuan, a 260.9 per cent jump from 15.7 million yuan in the same period in 2022, on the back of an increase in orders for its EH216-series products. Total 2023 revenue reached 117.4 million yuan, up 165 per cent from 44.3 million yuan the previous year. Sales and deliveries of the company's EH216-series products totalled 52 units last year, compared with 21 in 2022. Multiple EH216-S aircraft built by EHang are seen parked at a vertiport - an area that supports the landing and take-off of these types of passenger vehicles - in Guangzhou, capital of southern Guangdong province. Photo: Handout© Provided by South China Morning Post After completing aircraft certification, EHang conducted EH216-S production under the supervision of CAAC representatives at the company's factory in Yunfu, a city in Guangdong. The firm began deliveries of certified aircraft to customers in the December quarter. EHang did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The company's shares were up 4.71 per cent to US$16.23 in pre-market trading on Tuesday. The EH216-S, which was first announced in February 2018, has reportedly completed over 42,000 successful test flights in more than 14 countries. The two-passenger aircraft has a top speed of 130-kilometres per hour, a cruising speed of 100km/h and a maximum altitude of 3,000 metres. It has a range of 30km and a flight time of 25 minutes. It is built with 16 propellers, recharges its batteries in 120 minutes and provides a maximum payload of 220 kilograms. The luggage boot can accommodate an 18-inch suitcase to satisfy general commuting and short-distance travel requirements. EHang's EH216-S electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle is seen on display at the 2023 Indonesia International Motor Show held in Jakarta on February 23, 2023. Photo: Shutterstock The autonomous flight capabilities, fully electric propulsion, comprehensive redundancy safety features, and intelligent command-and-control systems of the EH216-S make it an ideal solution for various urban air mobility (UAM) applications, including air taxi services, aerial tourism, airport shuttles and cross-island transport, according to EHang. The company earlier this month forged a UAM cooperation pact with the municipal government of Wuxi, a city in eastern Jiangsu province, covering an order of 100 EH216-S units. Last October, EHang entered into a strategic cooperation deal with the municipal government of Hefei, a city in eastern Anhui province, for joint development of a low-altitude economy ecosystem, with US$100 million in extended support that can be used to facilitate a minimum order of 100 EH216-series products. The low-altitude economy, which is expected to be driven by the wide adoption of aircraft like eVTOLs and pilotless aerial vehicles, was identified as one of the national strategic emerging industries during the Central Economic Work Conference held in Beijing in December. About 20 provinces across the country have prioritised the development of the low-altitude economy this year, according to EHang. That is expected to contribute between 3 trillion yuan and 5 trillion yuan to China's economy by 2025, according to a white paper published last year by the International Digital Economy Academy in Shenzhen.

It has been disturbing me all weekend, what do you think is the root cause Is it a road design issue in general, or are drivers here in Singapore become more callous and careless? Or is everyone so tired, stressed/over worked that rushing around with no concentration while driving?
  5. Taxis can’t seem to catch a break lately. Touting, overcharging, and now possible injury of their own customers. What happened? A family had taken a ComfortDelGro Taxi and to somerset dropped off at the usual 313 spot. It’s a routine drop off as the passengers exit, but things go awry when one lady closes the boot. For some reason, the taxi driver started moving despite one of the doors still being open, right as the dad (or uncle, granddad) goes to pick up a small child from the backseat. It seemed the taxi driver did not realise not everyone had alighted until it was too late, and both man and child fell to the ground. Uncle heard the boot close and was immediately hunting for the next fare. Didn’t even get out to make sure they were ok. Luckily, it seems no one was injured, and the family seemed relieved enough at that as they did not pursue the matter any further. Online chatter Netizens however were not as forgiving, wondering how the taxi driver could be so blur, and didn’t even go check on the adult and child. Others praised the family for being so merciful to the taxi driver. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  7. Siaolang many many SINGAPORE – A 59-year-old taxi driver and his seven-year-old son were injured when a man hurled a rock at the cab’s windshield on Dec 10 evening. The Singapore Civil Defence Force said it was alerted to the incident near 201 Boon Lay Way at about 7.50pm and two people were taken to National University Hospital. The taxi driver, who wanted to be known only as Mr Chen, told Shin Min Daily News that the attack took place at about 7.20pm. He was taking his son out for dinner at the time, the Chinese-language evening newspaper reported on Dec 11. As he was driving towards Boon Lay Way in Yuan Ching Road, Mr Chen said he saw a man who looked to be in his 50s or 60s trying to stop a private bus by waving his arms. But the bus drove past him. The man seemed to be in a security guard’s uniform and was carrying a backpack, Mr Chen said, adding that the man held an object in his hand. As Mr Chen drove past the man, he suddenly reached out to yank at the taxi door even though Mr Chen gestured that he was not taking passengers, Shin Min reported. The man looked very angry. It seemed like he was shouting and he looked very fierce,” the cabby said. The man then threw the object he was holding at the taxi. Mr Chen said he and his son were shocked by a loud noise and saw that a rock the size of a fist had shattered the rear windshield. Their hands and feet were cut by the broken glass, he added. The man ran away immediately, Shin Min reported. Mr Chen then called the police, who confirmed that a report was lodged and investigations are under way. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/cabby-and-son-injured-after-man-throws-rock-at-car-windshield-in-jurong
  8. If there was ever a sign from a higher power to stop doing something, this is definitely one. What happened? An auntie was happily walking along underneath trees on the road divider when a taxi came out of nowhere and t-boned another car, narrowly missing the auntie. The auntie was no doubt left shocked from what just unfolded before her and fell on the ground in shock. The incident happened at the junction of Mandalay Road and Moulmein Road. Police reported that the people involved, a 68-year-old taxi driver, a 61-year-old driver and his 45-year-old passenger were conscious when they were taken to the hospital. Two of them were sent to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, while the third was sent to Singapore General Hospital. It is unknown what caused the accident, whether the taxi driver was not paying attention or his brakes failed him. The condition of the auntie is unknown, but I am willing to bet good money she will always cross at a junction from now on. Online chatter People commented on the auntie’s luck to have been so close to danger, maybe inches away from injury or worse. Others commented on the speed the taxi was going. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  10. Under paywall though https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/lexus-to-join-singapore-taxi-fleet Will ES Resale chui?
  11. Spotted a new hyundai i40 taxi in blue livery at PIE towards tuas this morning. If i remember correctly the plate number is SHD4600. The cab so new and the driver drive in a zig zag manner already.
  12. Now I know why when you make a mess it’s sometimes called a skidmark. Watch this video to see what kind of mess the lorry and taxi made when they came together. What happened? On 1 May 2023, a crash involving a lorry and a Hyundai taxi took place at the junction of Bras Basah Road and Nicoll Highway in front of Suntec Convention Centre. It is unclear as to the causes of the crash as the two cars are faced away from each other. The lorry was facing towards the entrance of Esplanade MRT while the taxi still faced the direction of the road. Think of one of those diagrams for vectors in O-Levels (ughhhhh). The lorry has been flipped to its side, while the taxi is some distance away from it with an open fuel tank and missing its entire front end. I’m really confused by this crash because the taxi is some distance away from the lorry, facing a completely different direction than the lorry even after impact. But somehow it was not hit with enough force to flip the taxi over or deal more structural damage. The video also shows a glimpse of a deployed airbag in the taxi, but no signs of any one having been inside the vehicle. SCDF personnel were present to close off the scene and gather evidence from the taxi. The taxi also left a trail of fluids behind it and intermittent skid marks on the road. If the trail is wet, does it become diarrhea instead? We do not know the condition of the drivers or if any pedestrians were involved. Online chatter Many speculate speeding on at least one driver’s fault, with one commenter joking about testing the new F1 route. And of course, someone had to bring attention to the skid mark. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  13. The karma in this one was instantaneous. It hit like a taxi, in fact. What happened? An MPV tried to run a red light just in front of Lau Pa Sat at Raffles Quay. At this time, a taxi was moving forward as the green light had just come on for its lane. There was no visible attempt at braking on the MPV’s side. This resulted in a T-bone as the taxi was perfectly positioned to hit the side of the MPV as it was moving, causing it to lose stability and flip to its side. I’m also suspecting that it’s a variant of a Toyota Alphard because the front grille looks remarkably similar, but the fog lights are throwing me off. I also like how in the video the other cars stopped for a bit to take in the crash, and then moved on with their day and carried on lol. Online chatter There’s no sympathy for the speeding MPV of course. Some people were concerned for the taxi driver and the road. Writer’s thoughts: Besides that, do drive safely everyone. Better to be late than risk your health or a few thousand in damages (if you're lucky). ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  14. TL:DR – SMRT taxi abruptly stops on lane 1 of an expressway for reasons unknown and causes a massive chain collision in its wake before driving off, oblivious to the destruction it caused behind. There are idiot drivers everywhere Our latest example drives a SMRT taxi. Watch the video below to find out why. Here’s the rear-view camera footage The SMRT taxi abruptly stops just before an ERP gantry on lane 1. The alert cam car driver comes to a complete stop as well. One or two cars manage to avoid crashing into cam car by quickly changing to lane 2 before the chain collision occurs. Only Asian cars involved Besides the cam car (which I cannot identify), there’s a Mazda 3. A Toyota Altis. Or what looks like a Toyota Altis. (It became a hatchback after the crash). And of course, the unsuspecting Honda Fit (poor fella) that crashed into the Altis, causing the chain collision. Facebook Post by driver of Cam Car Online Chatter Upon exploring the comments, we managed to uncover a bit more about the incident. The cam car driver took the time to reply most of the comments. Maybe the taxi driver didn't notice what was happening behind him? He's still an idiot driver though. I needed to translate because my Chinese sucks. Yeah, this is the most likely scenario. If I’m not wrong, he’ll be claiming from the Mazda 3 driver and the Mazda 3 driver will claim from the Toyota Altis. Then the Altis will claim from the Honda Fit. But, what about the main culprit of this incident? The SMRT Taxi driver? ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
  15. TL;DR - A taxi and a lorry collided, sending the front bumper of the taxi out onto the bustling traffic of Orchard. A perfect example of great minds think alike - aiming for the same lane at the same time. Watch this 107-second video to see a flying bumper. So what happened? A ComfortDelgro taxi and a Sunshine Bread lorry were turning right into two different lanes when the lorry sideswiped the taxi, resulting in the taxi losing its entire bumper. The driver of the lorry then came out of his vehicle, hurling expletives and signaling gestures of unhappiness as he walked towards the taxi. Seems like man is all pumped up (with anger) for a fight. If you're kept abreast of road accidents in Singapore, you would know this path has seen quite a few accidents. In case you're heading to town, do take extra precaution when driving along this road. Online Chatter Some netizens are faulting the lorry for not staying in his lane/inching forward before turning, while others are blaming the taxi for not checking for safety before driving off. There are even some who brought LTA into the picture for the poorly designed roads here. Takeaway Lane markings are there for a reason, stay well within them and have good lane discipline. Apart from that, it is also imperative to always have an eye for blind spots (geddit?) ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  16. A Toyota Prius ComfortDelGro Taxi blatantly bypasses and ignores the red light signal, almost crashing into the camcar that actually had the green light to head right. Watch the video for yourself below 288511691_1185332418957332_3251873631534851933_n.mp4 The license plate number of the taxi vehicle was thankfully taken note of, to hopefully bring the driver of this taxi to justice. The consequences of his carelessness could have had fatal consequences, and it is definitely no laughing matter. It’s even more embarrassing as a public hire taxi representing the company name of ComfortDelGro. Netizen Comments Criticism of the taxi driver was immediately raised by netizens on Facebook comments, often pointing out the driver as irresponsible and reckless, as well as urging them to file a traffic police report to get him to justice What do the rest think? Do you think the driver should suffer due justice for his actions?

  17. A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory. This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road. It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to conduct further investigations into the perpetrator of this incident. Watch the video for yourself below 289067600_382536057067470_6736625153643993941_n.mp4 Netizen Comments Netizens seem enraged about the disregard for traffic laws, expressing their comments on the Facebook wall at SG Road Vigilante What are your thoughts on this incident? What kind of consequences do you think the Getgo driver should receive?

  18. Car sharing drivers have developed quite a bad reputation for their atrocious driving over the years. If you're wondering how bad they are right now, look no further. Here's a video that will make you facepalm yourself: What Happened? After failing to come to a complete stop at a stop-line, a GetGo Mazda 3 abruptly performed an e-brake to avoid t-boning a taxi. For some reason (most likely to give the Mazda 3 driver a death stare), the taxi stopped just in front of the Mazda 3. At this point, the Mazda 3 somehow gently rolls forward and collides with the side of the taxi. I am not sure about you, but this deserves a good facepalm moment. This incident serves as a prime example of the poor driving skills that the majority of car sharing drivers possess. Netizens' Comments MMMM..... 👁️👄👁️ Personally, I tend to avoid being around these cars. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  19. Transcab taxi drivers are notorious for their driving behaviour among the various taxi companies. It is an impression that the public has developed over time, which I couldn't agree more. Here's why: Warning: This video contains excessive flashing lights. If you have photosensitive epilepsy, please do not watch the video What Happened? In the TikTok video posted by the cam bike, a Transcab taxi furiously chases an Audi A6 down an expressway. From the cam bike's speedometer, the Transcab taxi and the Audi A6's speed was approximately 100km/h or above. While pursuing the Audi A6, the Transcab repeatedly flashes his high beam at the A6 for a prolonged period. The taxi driver's flashing rate was so fast that he might as well have turned on his high beam. NGL, regardless of what may have happened off-cam, the Transcab driver's actions suggest that he was itching for a fight with the Audi driver. Lane 4 Is The New Lane 1 With all this unnecessary drama and 'road hogging' on lane 1, a black car (who obviously couldn't give two shits) tore down lane 4 of the expressway at high speed. Judging from the cam bike's speedometer, I am not surprised if the black car was travelling at 120km/h or faster. Netizens' Comments 🤷‍♂️ Here you go! Just leaving this here for context. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
  20. One can never take road safety for granted. There is a purpose behind inculcating a sense of road safety in us from a young age. Watch what happens when you take a chance and throw your road safety knowledge and guidelines out the window: What Happened? The accident occurred along Pasir Ris Drive 1, involving a taxi and a cyclist. A cyclist was cycling across a pedestrian crossing when a taxi performing a discretionary left turn started to accelerate as he approached the junction. Due to the lack of lights and reflectors and the dark coloured clothing donned by the cyclist, the cyclist's road presence was hardly noticeable. The taxi driver likely did not spot the cyclist while he was cycling across the pedestrian crossing. As a result, the taxi driver rammed into the cyclist rather forcefully, which sent him crashing headfirst onto the road. The Injury The cyclist injured his head, causing his forehead to bleed. He was subsequently conveyed to the hospital for medical attention. Who do you think is at fault? The taxi driver, cyclist or both? Netizens' Comments Indeed. NGL this is somewhat true. He's paying the price for forgetting the most important, yet cheap safety component. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  21. 'Crazy Taxi' is a popular game of the late 1990s to 2000s, which requires you to pick up passengers and drop them off at their location in the quickest time possible. It also allows you to drive freely and perform 'crazy stunts' to earn additional tips. Unfortunately, this one cabby took the game too seriously: What Happened? This peculiar incident occurred at the Dover Park Connector, where a taxi driver somehow drove his taxi in. I have no idea how he managed to accomplish such a feat. The only way to find out is to watch his dashcam footage (if he has). The taxi driver was spotted driving on the pavement along the canal, which attracted stares from pedestrians and cyclists. And yes, they were stares of bewilderment. Subsequently, the taxi drove up the pedestrian ramp, squeezing his way past some pedestrians. NGL, the journey up the pedestrian ramp reminded me of the S-course back in the driving circuit. Did He Get Out? Unfortunately, the video does not show if the taxi driver managed to figure his way out of the park connector. Considering how he managed to end up in a random park connector, I highly doubt he would be able to find his way out on his own. Chances are, he would require the necessary assistance of the authorities to navigate out of the park connector. Netizens' Comments After that day, he is never using the GPS anymore. @To all driving instructors, please don't bring your student driver here whenever the circuit is fully booked. Optimistic thinking. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
  22. Taxi fares in Singapore poised to rise in March [SINGAPORE] First, bus and train fares. And now, taxi fares are poised to rise - as early as March. The Straits Times understands market leader ComfortDelGro, which controls 60 per cent of the total taxi fleet of around 15,000 cabs in the Republic, has signalled to the authorities its intention to adjust flagdown and distance rates. The Public Transport Council, which has to be informed of fare changes, has yet to respond to queries from ST filed early Thursday (Jan 27). Currently, taxi flagdown fares are mostly S$3.70 for diesel taxis and S$3.90 for petrol-electric hybrids. And for every 400m thereafter up to 10km, the metre goes up by 22 cents. Beyond 10km, the distance fare rises by 22 cents every 350m. At its last fare adjustment in 2011, ComfortDelGro raised the flagdown fare of most cabs by 20 cents and distance fares by two cents per fare band. The planned adjustment is expected to be similar. As has been the practice, other taxi companies - Trans-Cab, SMRT, Premier and Prime - will adjust fares after the market leader. https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/transport/taxi-fares-in-singapore-poised-to-rise-in-march
  23. Cross-junctions have and always will be a dangerous section of any road. It is essentially an intersection with the most concentrated traffic, which poses additional hazards to road users. One such hazard is being a victim to vehicles that beat the red light, such as this one: What Happened? This unfortunate accident took place at a cross-junction along Boon Lay Drive. Firstly, let's take a look at an overview of the location below: Upon the green light signal, a ComfortDelgro taxi on the left lane, intending to travel straight, gradually approached the junction. Just then, a lorry from the right beat the red light and smashed head-first into the driver-side of the taxi. The lorry was travelling at a relatively fast speed as it seemed to have gone full-throttle and accelerated in an attempt to beat the red light "successfully". NGL, the impact of the collision was a rather strong one. Both vehicles came to a complete halt moments later, after striking a kerb. A Sitting Duck The taxi was essentially a sitting duck that had no way of mitigating the danger posed by the oncoming lorry. Despite the traffic signal that indicated it was clear for the taxi to proceed, its view of the oncoming lorry was completely obstructed by another lorry on the discretionary right turn lane beside it. Be it to perform an emergency brake or swerve; it was almost impossible for any driver to have responded in such a situation. Here's wishing the taxi driver and all those involved in the accident a speedy recovery! Netizens' Comments GWS😰 Tell me about it. Especially all those commercial driving on lane 1 of the expressways🙄 The last time I checked, being a victim of an accident is not a good thing. What's wrong with these people? ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
  24. There is a saying that goes like this: "If you are not angry when you drive, you are the one making others angry." It is true to a certain extent, except that it is more towards being annoyed than being angry. However, for this particular taxi driver, he may have taken that quote a bit too far. Watch the video below to see how he expresses his anger towards a fellow motorist: Warning: The following video features plenty of Hokkien vulgarities, voice cracking and inaudible shouting. Watch it at your own risk! What Happened? The incident occurred along Jalan Sultan. Apparently, the Honda Odyssey driver cut from the extreme left to the extreme right lane (taxi driver's lane) without checking and almost caused an accident. The Honda driver's behaviour angered the taxi driver, which prompted the taxi driver to honk him. Unhappy at being honked at, the Honda driver stopped in the middle of the road, impeding the path of the taxi driver. Subsequently, both drivers alighted from their cars, and they began to exchange a series of glorious expletives. Below is a brief and translated version of their confrontation: A Mere Coincidence? IMO, the taxi driver ain't no angel either. It feels as if he was out to pick a fight with the Honda Odyssey driver for cutting into his lane. And somehow, there wasn't any footage of the Honda driver performing what the taxi driver claimed he did. That's a bit too coincidental, isn't it? Netizens' Comments Seems like the taxi driver was seizing the opportunity to vent his frustration on the Honda Odyssey driver. Sorry, I snickered at this comment. @Honda Odyssey driver Pls upload your dashcam footage. ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook!

  25. Nothing beats heading home after a long day of work. Unfortunately for this woman who was on her way home from a night shift, she encounters a taxi driver who she accused of looking at her breast through the rear-view mirror. Watch her as she confronts the taxi uncle here: What Happened? A woman accused her taxi driver of looking at her breast through the rear-view mirror, as she could see her chest in the rear-view mirror from her Point of View (POV). This sparked to a confrontation with the taxi uncle to which she asked in an angry manner, "Why you put on my breast?" The accusation continues for quite some time before the taxi uncle re-adjusted the rear-view mirror to face the car's roof. Despite re-adjusting the mirror, the confrontation continues. Moments later, the woman abruptly commands the taxi uncle to alight her at a 7-Eleven by the roadside. Before the video ends, the woman was persistently demanding the taxi uncle for his name. Now Here's The Fun Part, Let's Shed Some Facts! The following was the description she provided in her user-submitted content: Two main points question the reliability and authenticity of the woman's recount. Point #1 The woman stated that she was heading home after her night shift, at around 8-ish in the morning. However, a simple screenshot of the video at 3:04 shows that the taxi's Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) indicates that it was at 6pm. (Refer to the image above) And I am pretty certain that these MDTs are pretty accurate as it serves as a taxi metre to calculate the total trip fare. Point #2 Initially, the woman stated in her recount that she was heading home after a night shift. However, at the end of her description, she states that she is an unemployed mother to 4 kids. Contradictory much? All that said, these two points are sufficient for me to doubt the woman's accusations. What is your opinion on this matter? I would love to hear what you guys think!
