Justice Bao Gong: Who's Causing the JAM? Part 2: Taxi HOGGERS
Below are Taxis CAUGHT BLOCKING AMBULANCES & CAUSING TRAFFIC JAMS BY HOGGING THE EXTREME RIGHT LANE & REFUSING TO KEEP LEFT:
The below taxi was blocking the ambulance for quite some stretch along the CTE until he saw us standing on the bridge with the camera and started to filter left. Shortly after, another taxi from the same company turned right and cut into the path of the ambulance, despite the ambulance's flashing lights!
This white ROADHOGGING Taxi is holding up traffic in CTE. All the whole trail of cars behind him cannot overtake as he is hogging the extreme right lane.
Yet another ROADHOGGING blue taxi BLOCKING everyone's way in the CTE and thus causing slow moving traffic as vehicles behind cannot overtake because of these hoggers.
Another taxi (yellow colour) causing us to pay HIGHER ERP charges because of his ROADHOGGING. Notice all the frustrated vehicles behind him who are trying to overtake but are unable to because he is blocking the extreme right lane AND GOING SLOWER THAN THE LORRY in the middle lane.
Yet another ROADHOGGING Taxi HOGGING the extreme right lane, causing traffic JAM. Drivers behind this ROADHOGGING taxi cannot overtake because taxi refuse to keep left & is driving slower than the traffic on the centre lane.
If you have been wondering why you are paying higher ERP Charges, now you know why. In future posts, their number plates will be revealed so that the public knows who are these inconsiderate drivers BLOCKING AMBULANCES and CAUSING TRAFFIC JAMS BY HOGGING THE EXTREME RIGHT LANE & REFUSING TO KEEP LEFT.
Send us your comments on what solutions you have to ease the JAMs on the expressway and how to SAVE more LIVES by enabling ambulances to move more freely on the roads.
Your humble servant of
Justice Bao Gong
