From The Straits Time;
"A car owner can now accept payment from passengers who hitch a ride. This and other rules and regulations governing carpooling came into effect on Monday under the Road Traffic Act in an effort to bring legal clarity to what was a grey area. The move is also expected to boost car sharing, which in turn should ease congestion on the roads and on public transport."
So we might see more 霸王车 (pirate taxi) on the road and waving hands at the bus stop and ask you want to go Shenton Way or not?
Wondering how are they going to charge you for per trip?
