Older driver safety awareness week
Some private-hire drivers here are using modified apps of ride- hailing firms such as Grab and Gojek to cheat the system. Bootleg versions of these apps allow drivers to bypass verification, fake their location, cancel jobs without being penalised and, in some cases, view private customer information. The New Paper understands that some drivers have been caught and penalised with warnings and suspensions. Checks by TNP found a thriving online community dedicated to hacking and modifying these apps. Some people are also offering their services on online forums and messaging apps to drivers who lack the technical expertise to do it themselves. One such advertisement touted such services at a monthly rate of $350 for the Grab Driver app and $200 for the Gojek app. Last week, Facebook user Boon Tat Tan alleged that some Grab drivers were using hacked apps to cancel and decline rides without consequence, or collude to force a pricing surge for higher fares.

By Tara Deschamps Special to the Star Tues., May 14, 2019 When Dave Kranenburg heads to farmers’ markets he spends most of the time fretting.

It would be a huge blow.” He and other farmers’ market vendors – often contending with no running water or electricity – are pros when it comes to spotting and mitigating food safety concerns.
