Why give permits to illegal taxis and buses ? 政府为何发准证给霸王车 ??

In Sabah many of these vehicles are already operating without proper permits and safety measures, many are usually overloaded with passengers and driven dangerously, some drivers are known to have no driving license, and worst of all they have no insurance coverage for the passengers because they are illegal in the first place. These ‘Pa-wongs’ had taken away much business from the proper licensed taxi and mini buses, and normally they charged less.
Dr. Hiew the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament said he can not understand the rational behind granting the permits to these illegal taxis and buses. Since they are illegal, the authorities should take action to catch them and remove them from taking the business away from the licensed taxi and buses operators. This reflects that the BN government is encouraging illegal operators and now even legalizing them by giving permits straight away.
在沙巴州有许多此类型的车辆在无准证及全无安全措施下营业,并且时常超载和危险驾驶,甚至有些司机没有驾照,以及没有为乘客购买保险,因为他们是属 于非法营业。  这些‘霸王车’通常他们的收费比较低,所以抢走了拥有准证的德士及小巴的许多生意。
亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士表示说,他无法理解政 府给予这些非法德士及巴士执照的图意。 由于他们是属于非法营业,当局应采取行动抓拿他们,并且阻止他们影响持有正式商业执照的德士和小巴的生意。  如此分发执照的举动反映出国阵政府鼓励非法营业,甚至还允许他们的合法化。

 
The research by Sabah DAP in regards to the intention of the government to approve permits to the illegal taxis and buses which are already operating in the towns and the rural areas in many parts in Sabah shows that a vast majority of the people are strongly against the idea of the so called “bad intention” of the BN government.
The Taxis Association and many other groups had found this measure as impractical and will upset the livelihood of the existing licensed taxi business who is struggling to survive. There are already in many parts of Sabah hundreds of illegal and un-licensed kampong taxi and mini buses operating and ferrying passengers in and out of the kampongs to towns. They are using unqualified vehicles like pickups and even small Kancil, and this illegal public transportation is usually called the “Pa-Wong”.

Why can’t the government control the issuance of these permits by making them to apply individually through the proper procedure and abide to the laws there is. The number of permits to be issued in each area must be controlled in order to safe guard the earning of the existing license holders. There are plenty of foreigners, and some are illegal immigrants driving the Pa-wong in kampongs, why the authorities never take action to catch them?

Therefore, we must have strict control on granting them the proper permits, and it is compulsory in order to safe guard our lives and to protect our love ones.

政府为何发准证给霸王车

沙巴民主行动党已进入探讨有关政府宣布分发准证给霸王德士及小巴的计划。 沙巴各市镇及乡下都可以发现他们的踪影,许多市民都强烈反对分发准证给他们,并且也不断地问国阵政府的真正‘意图’。

沙巴德士协会和许多其他团体都认为这是一项不能实行的措施,并且这会破坏现有的德士和巴士的生计,他们都在辛苦的经营中。 目前有许多非法和没有准证的甘榜霸王德士及小巴从甘榜载送乘客到城镇去。他们使用不合格的车辆及小货车,例如‘灵鹿’(Kancil)之类。
在沙巴州有许多此类型的车辆在无准证及全无安全措施下营业,并且时常超载和危险驾驶,甚至有些司机没有驾照,以及没有为乘客购买保险,因为他们是属 于非法营业。  这些‘霸王车’通常他们的收费比较低,所以抢走了拥有准证的德士及小巴的许多生意。

亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士表示说,他无法理解政府给予这些非法德士及巴士执照的图意。 由于他们是属于非法营业,当局应采取行动抓拿他们,并且阻止他们影响持有正式商业执照的德士和小巴的生意。  如此分发执照的举动反映出国阵政府鼓励非法营业,甚至还允许他们的合法化。

为什么政府不去好好控制他们,要他们透过正当申请程序,及遵守法律原则才批准该些执照。  每个区域分发的执照数目必须要受到控制以确保现有持有执照者的利益。 有许多外来人,甚至是非法移民驾驶‘霸王车’进出甘榜做生意,为何当局完全没有采取任何行动阻止他们呢? 实在叫人费解?

因此,当局必须要严格的控制以及强制性地要他们透过正当的申请程序,才能分发该执照。 这也是为了要确保乘客们的生命安全。
