An angry PHV (Private Hire Vehicle) driver posted a complaint in Facebook in regards to an incident on board of his PHV car, whereby the passenger broke his car’s “ceiling support” handle and exit the car abruptly after apologizing..
Complainant gave chase and was able to get hold of the passenger’s contact number. but he refused to provide his Identity Card for record purpose.
After consulting with GoJek (a PHV Company in Singapore), they advised him to lodge a police report before proceeding to the workshop to get a quotation for fixing the damaged handle.
When complainant informed the passenger of his action, the passenger gave a rather agitated response..
Here is the original Facebook post:
