same same like taxi insurance or whatever name you want
And our vehicles are public transport after July 2019https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/4616772/all
There's too many agenda behind this matter. Uncle taxi, goverment and grab are playing their cards. Although grab is the one who might be in the tight spot.
Gomen was pushed by uncle taxis and somehow they need to fulfill their promises. Hence, all the demands by the uncle taxis were met. Puspakom, psv, etc. They are the real winner here. Uncle taxis will cast their vote on them on next pru while they squeeze money from psv, puspakom. They are not losing in this trade. Scared Grab angry? Nah they know grab is too soft. We only vent our anger in socmed.
In uncle taxis cases, the real agenda is to monopoly the market again. Regulations on e-hailing? They don't give a single mind about it. They knew with such implemantation, most of the drivers will be demotivated and stop driving. They even express their disappointment on the "1 year grace period" and demand that the implemantation should be done now. With less supply from Grab, they can get their precious customers back, crawling to them. Least, that's what they thought. Little did they know that some people mati2 don't want ride taxi and rather looks for other alternatives. In the end all that left is uncle taxis waiting on the roadside of LRT with nothing to blame on.
For Grab? No one will know what cards they're playing. They are sneaky bastards who will came out with a plan eventually. Giving you candies to atrract more lembus and slay them when they are ripe enough to harvest. Silently planning on how to make profit. They are like dandelion in the crack on the pavement. They might grew "beautifully" or die stomped by.
We lembus? Heh, we have our own agenda too. Part timers are out from this game since the moment MOT mention the regulations. Contemplating whether it is worth it to be part time lembu or not. Full lembus? Probably came out as the winner. Apa lah sangat amount and puspakom compared to the demand you will get when those part timers quit for good. Two week can cover that sum already. The only slight problem is the crap go out try to gain uncle taxis trust back and reform to myteksi 2.0. Just look at Justgrab implemantation. Moreover, we are the pawns of crap when they decide to shove our arse in squeezing profit.
Riders? They are the clueless one. They are like the bystanders caught between the "war". They might be stand far enought to not be smeared by the feces but they surely get the smell of it. Price hikes? Low demands? Forced to ride taxis and get cheated? Well they are the one who have a lot of choices in this matter. They can choose between cake, ice cream, durian or stale bread if they are clever enough.
In the end, everyone is looking for themselve. We are nothing but strangers to one another. As long as there are glimpse of opportunities, we will grab it. Kill or be killed, that's the harsh truth.
Hehe it's saturday evening and I have nothing better to do before grabbing later. Hence my ridiculous monologue. Well, goodluck everybody on your future endeavours. May the force be with you. P/s: don't take this post seriously. I'm just bored 🤣
