I dunno wtf is LTA saying.

PHC are public service vehicles so cannot ferry goods and can only ferry passengers.

Then they say child seat regulations not exempt because PHC are not public service vehicles.

So which is it? Can I write into them to ask?
“Public service vehicles” is not the reason for no child restraint; street-hailed is.
The official reply from LTA did not contain “public service vehicles”.

PRIVATE HIRE CARS NOT EXEMPT FROM CHILD SEAT REQUIREMENT

Media Replies 10 Feb 2017

We refer to the letter by the National Private Hire Vehicles Association, “Exempt private hire cars from child seat requirement” (TNP, 1 Feb 2017).

For safety reasons, all vehicles in Singapore must have booster seats or child restraints for passengers under 1.35m in height. However, taxis are exempted from this rule because they can be street-hailed. Hence, it would not be reasonable to expect them to be equipped with booster seats and child restraints at all times, or to reject passengers with infants or children.

In comparison, private hire cars, which must be pre-booked, allows passengers to indicate if they require booster seats or child restraints at the point of booking. This gives private hire car drivers sufficient advance notice to prepare accordingly.

The current approach strikes a balance between practicality and ensuring that the safety of our children is not compromised. We encourage the National Private Hire Vehicles Association to work closely with private hire car booking service operators on this rule.

Thank you.

Your Views: Exempt private hire cars from child seat requirement

Mohamad Randy, Executive Secretary, National Private Hire Vehicles Association
Feb 01, 2017 06:00 am

Private hire cars, much like taxis, essentially offer point-to-point transportation services for commuters.

Such services are especially important for families with young children, who appreciate the convenience of having transportation in times of need.

The National Private Hire Vehicles Association (NPHVA) urges the authorities to review the rule of mandatory child booster seats or restraints that are currently applicable to private hire cars ("No Grab or Uber for those with young kids", The New Paper, Jan 26).

When commuters are denied the service by law-abiding private hire car drivers, it creates unhappiness and inconvenience for the commuters.

This unhappiness may result in drivers receiving poor feedback from the commuters, and in some extreme cases, drivers have been threatened with violence, thereby putting their safety at risk.

Private hire car drivers also incur costs to travel to the designated pick-up points upon accepting a booking by commuters travelling with young children.

On arrival, the drivers face disappointment as they realise that they are unable to provide the service and collect the agreed fare. Such factors impact the viability of drivers' incomes and careers.

The NPHVA has been in talks with the Land Transport Authority to seek exemptions of this rule to be applied to the private hire car segment.

We hope due consideration can be made to enable families with young children to travel conveniently with all available point-to-point transportation services, while balancing the safety considerations pertaining to young children travelling in such vehicles.

The NPHVA also feels that private hire car service operators, such as limousine companies and third-party ride-sharing app companies, can do more to educate both drivers and commuters on the current rules and the types of services available, so that commuters can request and book the right service for their appropriate needs.

Fri 6-7pm cbd can do but after 7pm most people will be heading to town if not back home to spend time with family.

But fri night 8-10pm can hang ard orchard for those going home after RnR. 8pm onwards in cbd is going to be deadtown.
