  E-hailing, hire car drivers now subject to same rules as taxi drivers - Najib
Last update: 13/04/2018

SERDANG, April 13 (Bernama) -- Beginning April 6, all e-hailing and hire car drivers have been required to adhere to the same conditions and regulations as taxi drivers to create fair competition among the services, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

The Prime Minister said the rules included screening pertaining to their background, traffic offences, health, training requirements and periodic vehicle inspections.

"I realise that taxi drivers face many obstacles and challenges. I am aware that the income of taxi drivers has been somewhat affected by the existence of e-hailing services in our country.

"The e-hailing service has a demand but we have to do something through government intervention to protect the rice bowl of the taxi drivers," he said at the presentation of the 1Malaysia Taxi Assistance Card at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang here today.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri and acting chairman of the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad were also present at the event which drew over 10,000 taxi drivers from around the country.

  You should only use the hazard lights to warn
traffic that you've had to stop in some sort of emergency. Turning on the hazard lights and still driving on is dangerous. If more and more
motorists use their hazard lights when they
are still moving, those who use them when they actually stall would be in danger of being
knocked into by traffic behind them
