Facebook user, Sarah Leong, posted on an aged Trans-Cab taxi driver who was involved in traffic accident.

According to Sarah Leong, the taxi driver was earlier seen at a petrol station. The taxi driver had difficulty walking and needed the aid of a walking stick to walk gingerly to the taxi.

Sarah was concerned for the taxi driver and asked several pointed questions.

LTA, as well as taxi and PHV companies need to review their hiring process. It is important that everyone regardless of age, be allowed to drive to earn a living.

However, safety must not be compromised.

Besides the health check-ups, more can be done to ensure that drivers who have certain physical limitations face more thorough screening processes. 

This is not only to protect the companies and the public.

They need to be responsible for the safety of the drivers concerned as well.
