Naghahain ng reklamo sa Pasig Police ang biktimang GrabCar driver kasama ang saksing spa attendant.

PASIG CITY, Philippines — Walang nagawa ang isang drayber ng GrabCar kundi magreklamo sa presinto matapos itong masalisihan ng isang pasahero na nagpahatid sa lungsod ng Pasig.

Ayon sa biktimang nagpakilala lamang sa pangalang Mike, gamit ang GrabCar application, nag book ang suspek sa isang mall sa Quezon City at nagpanggap na magpapahatid sa isang condominium sa Pasig.

Dahil sa matatamis na pananalita, nakuha ang loob ng biktima na samahan muna ito sa isang spa at body massage salon sa C.Raymundo,Pasig bago ihatid sa condo.

Paglalahad ni Mike, “Sabi niya, ‘Magpapa-spa ako sir, idaan mo ako sa spa. Kung gusto mo, habang hinihintay mo ako bibigyan na rin kita; ipi-free na rin kita ng mga services,’ then ganun po ang nangyari sabay po kaming nag pa spa.”

Pinangakuan pa ng suspek ang biktima na siya na lang ang palaging kukuning drayber sa mga lakad nito.

Pagkatapos magpamasahe ng dalawa, sinamantala ng suspek na kuhanin ang pera at cellphone ng biktima habang ito ay naliligo sa banyo. At pagkatapos makuha ang dalawang smartphone, tatlong libong pisong kita, tatlong ATM cards at mahahalagang ID, ay mabilis na umalis ang suspek na nagpakilala lamang sa pangalang Aldin, base na rin sa GrabCar application.

Hindi naman aniya akalain na mananakaw ng suspek ang kaniyang gamit dahil pinabantayan pa nito sa nagmasahe sa kaniya.

Ayon naman sa spa attendant, inakala aniya na magkarelasyon ang dalawa kaya naman nagtiwala ito sa suspek.

“Malambing yung bakla sa kaniya na sabihin, ‘Be ano gusto mo?’ Ang tawag sa kaniya nga ‘be’ kaya kampante ako na mag jowa silang dalawa.”

Dagdag pa ng attendant, “May alahas po siya, ang kapal nga po ng alahas niya eh. Hindi mo mapagkamalan na ano.”

Dahil sa nangyari, nanawagan na lang ang biktima sa mga kapuwa nitong mga drayber na huwag magpapa biktima sa mga kawatan.

Paalala ni Mike, “Wag magtiwala sa kapwa kahit anung ganda ng pananalita. Isaalang-alang din natin yung safety natin ma’am kahit naghahangad tayo ng sobrang kita.” (UNTV News)

Thousands of striking taxi drivers protest in central Madrid

Thousands of Madrid taxi drivers staged a protest on Monday (January 28) at Sol Square in central Madrid against the online ride-hailing sector, including companies like Uber and Cabify which they say ignore regulations and pose unfair competition.

The protest joined by taxi drivers from across Spain and Portugal ended a day of demonstrations that started with the blockage of Madrid’s most iconic avenue earlier in the day.

Spain’s government agreed to pass new regulations in September guaranteeing a cap on licences for Uber and similar services at a ratio of just one permit for every 30 taxi permits.

The regulation also permitted Spanish regions to adopt their own restrictions on the services as they see fit.

But taxi workers demand further restrictions such a law that would force customers of ride-hailing services to order transport an hour beforehand.

Taxi drivers have been on strike since Monday (January 21). — Reuters

Authorities nabbed 2 taxi drivers over fake meters

admin   •   March 29, 2018

The driver of this Easy taxi unit was involved in overcharging a foreign tourist using a fake tariff.

MANILA, Philippines — Personnel of the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) have arrested the taxi driver who went viral on social media for contracting his Chinese passenger using a fake taxi meter.

MIAA intelligence and investigation division said that it has discovered the modus operandi of the suspect through the video posted by food vlogger Mikey Chen.

The driver allegedly charged Chen P2,300 taxi fare from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 4 to Terminal 3 last January 27.

Chen said he was able to bargain the price down to P1,500.

The suspect did not deny the allegations.

“Eh sinubukan ko lang. Isang beses lang ‘yon Sir,” said the suspect.

(I just tried it once.)

 “Pinagbigyan na kayo ng MIAA para kumuha ng mga pasahero doon kasi kulang yung yellow metered. Huwag ninyong abusuhin,” said Land Transportation and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) board member Atty. Aileen Lizada.

(MIAA gave you a chance to pick up passengers at the airport because there is a lack of yellow metered taxis. Don’t abuse it.)

The operator of the taxi was fined P100, 200 while the vehicle will be impounded for three months.

The license of the driver might be canceled or be included in the blacklist of the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

Meanwhile, a taxi driver was also apprehended for using a tampered taximeter.

Personnel of MIAA discovered the fraud when they inspected the yellow taxi.

The control was hidden under the driver’s seat.

It is a device used to speed up the taximeter.

“This is already fraud. You are employing another device para mas bumilis. You are tampering already with the meter na. ‘Yan ho ay calibrated and sealed para hindi ninyo galawin,” said Lizada.

(This is already fraud. You are employing another device to make it run faster. You are tampering already with the meter. That is calibrated and sealed so that you cannot not tamper with it.)

The yellow metered taxi will be impounded for three months and its operator will have to pay a fine of P120,000. — Joan Nano| UNTV News & Rescue

 

Uber strips of its London license; sparks heated debates

admin   •   October 2, 2017

London’s Uber ban has sparked heated debates among the local residents and taxi drivers as the city’s regulator revoked its license, which expired on Saturday.

The Uber ban has upset some locals. More than 800,000 London residents have petitioned for the Uber service, as they have lost a choice for convenient commuting.

“It’s much much cheaper. It’s two-thirds much cheaper, because it is safe, and it is cheap, and it’s reliable,” said a London resident.

Despite the cheap price, safety problem is often neglected by the citizens. Moreover, the popularity of Uber resulted in a competitive taxi market in London.

“No, it’s not safe. They don’t care about it. They just care about their cheap price,” said a taxi driver.

“They work in about 18 hours a day because there are so many of them, and there is no regulation. Some of the drivers even, I even talk to them sometimes, they are complaining. Uber drivers have complained and protested about Uber’s practices,” said Steve Hayes, a taxi driver.

The ban has affected around 40,000 registered Uber drivers in London, causing full-time drivers to lose income.

Globally, Uber has endured a tumultuous few months after a string of scandals involving allegations of bullying at the company.

The app has been forced to quit several countries including Denmark and Hungary and faced regulatory battles in multiple US states and countries around the world. — Reuters
