Your last paragraph is absolutely correct. Bang only $4280 fly away. Think carefully. How long do u need to drive to earn back the $4280. If during that time u bang again. How. Many youngsters don't have brain to think. See people say earn $7400 and $6000 straightaway jump in.
Jitao $4280 oe can pay by installment?
How come so much? Taxi only $1k right.

Every job has a risk, just that big or small. $4280 is small if the car is totalled. Big if it's only a scratch.

Banquet servers also have risks, dropping 3 big pots of soup for 3 tables at one go is no joke. I've seen it happen.

So, they should just go home generate revenue by watching ads which will be safer than slipping and falling with food?
Yes everything got risk, but u think so easy total ah

If u want to compare

Banquet no need kek deo, lun sai,
Wont kena ferrari or merc bang
No excess $4280, do long term wont affect health

If u cant get what i am saying, then it is ok anyway, u deserve to continue driving, the country's future is not in jeopardy with or without u

Based on what you say, you should just stay home and not leave the house, lying on the bed is safer than going out make money, cos everything is a risk.

Your reasoning is really, top notch.

Actually, the reasoning is good in relation to risk-taking.

Everything out there has a risk. The question is whether it is justifiable to take a calculated risk to earn that $6,000. To enable a decision to be made, it is worth to consider the following factors:
1) likelihood of the risk occuring;
2) seriousness of the risk;
3) practicality of avoiding or minimising the risk; and
4) characteristics of the driver.

In applying the above to rental car driving to achieve that illusional $6,000 earnings:
1) The risk of an accident occuring on the roads is real;
2) If an non-injury accident does happen, the monetary penalty is high ($4280);
3) it is almost impossible to avoid accidents as they could happen through no fault of the driver;
4) In the event of an accident, does the driver have the means to pay?

Contrast it to lying in bed and banquetting. What are the risks? The ceiling collapsing. Is it possible? Yes. Is it likely? No.

There are cases of ceiling giving way. It is likely to happen, just that it doesn't happen to you, doesn't mean it won't.

There's always a risk in everything, big or small, the least you expect it, it will happen. A banana skin on the road causing, you to slip, fall backwards on a stone ledge, breaking your skull, is also possible.

It's just we haven't see it. Chances of it happening is low, doesn't mean it won't.

Low risk is not no risk. Just that it doesn't happen to you - yet.

That is just bad luck which is out of context here.
There is no way to eliminate bad luck or freak accidents.

The context of accidents, as reported daily in the media, is much more real than a ceiling failling, or slipping and dying from a fall.

Consequently, any decision to drive a private-hire car should be made with reference to what are commonly known and proven facts.

Same goes for $4280 cases...it's a reason why it's called 'accident'.

Commonly known facts also equates to being crushed by trees - so, we don't park our cars in open air carparks?

Wet roads causing slippery-ness, so we don't drive as it increases accident rate?

I think commonly known facts and references are made with the idea here is that there's a risk. It's a risk that all carries, regardless driving own car or PHV.

There's a risk you step out of the house, and you fall down, it's not a freak accident, it's just 'accidental'.

Accidents are bad luck, but bad luck aren't accidents? Food for thought.

I see no logic in arguing with you because you are unreasonable.
