Daily Traffic Jams.

The increase in vehicle population has caused very heavy traffic flow and congestions everywhere, especially along the highways and in the city areas during peak hours. If there are vehicle breakdowns or even the slightest accidents, then we get sudden 'massive' jams. Poor road courtesy and drivers' unwillingness to give way to one another has been the main causes of accidents and clogged-up roads.

During festive seasons and cultural festivals which are continuous, numerous and endless, more heavy road congestions can be expected. For us taxi drivers, we face more difficulties and experience great stress whilst trying hard to get passengers and to be caught in jams makes it worst of all.

With the recent fare increases, we still find that our income has not risen tremendously but only very minimal or sometimes still remain the same as before. In order to earn more income, we need to work very long hours, between 12 to 14 hours a day and its tough going, this is especially so for those who have young families.
