Following two videos that went viral last Friday (29 Nov), featuring a Trans-Cab driver violently harassing a motorist in one and berating a couple in another, TOC reached out to Trans-Cab for their comments on both incidents but was left out in the cold.
However, as reported by The Straits Times (ST) on 30 November, Trans-Cab has terminated the contract of the aforementioned driver. The 42-year-old cab driver began his employment for the company earlier in July.
In the first one-and-a-half-minute video, the cab driver, dressed in a white checkered shirt and black pants, wearing a beanie and surgical mask along with a sling bag, was seen engaging in an aggressive behaviour towards a motorist – who remained in his car the whole time, filming the incident.
The police stated that they have established the identity of the taxi driver.
They noted that the driver was involved in a case of road rage along Paterson Hill on 22 November, as well as a case of criminal intimidation and voluntarily causing hurt at 14 Scotts Road on 24 November.
Further investigations are ongoing.
