Frequent incidents of cab drivers; Airport Cab Service, dozing off while driving.

This petition had 27 supporters

This is to highlight experiencing numerous situations while commuting to or from KIAL, when the drivers of the airport service agency cabs , dozing off while driving. Some of these cases have resulted in near-miss situations and few cases resulted in accidents.

On informal inquiry with the drivers, it has been gathered that they are required to work on continuous 48-hour shifts. They get rest of 24 hours only after that. Whereas there are examples of service providers who control booking and do not allow drivers to be on duty for more than 12 hours at a stretch.

As you would appreciate, such continuous 48-hour shift puts the drivers, passengers and the general public in great danger. You would also appreciate that continuance of such a system is a tremendous liability for the service provider and the establishments promoting such service providers.

Sincerely need your intervention to ensure that sufficient rest is made mandatory for these drivers, with all requisite measures to arrest deviations.
