Why so difficult to get a taxi from Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 to Punggol?

I realised that it is difficult to get a taxi from Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 to Punggol End from 1505hrs to 1535hrs.

I waited for a taxi along Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 today. Four taxis stopped but none of them want to send me to Punggol.

I hope I will not behave likewise when I become a taxi driver.

Taxi drivers are not allowed to do the following:

Refuse to convey passengers without valid reason, when the taxi rooftop is displaying the “Taxi” sign.

Taxi drivers must display the appropriate sign at the taxi rooftop, such as “Busy” or “Changing Shift” if he is not able to pick up passengers.

Terminate the hiring of a taxi or require passengers to leave the taxi, without valid reason, before the passengers are conveyed to the destination.

Overcharge passengers or solicit for passengers.Verbally insult, intimidate or harass passengers.

What are the likely actions taken by LTA when a complaint of such nature is received?

Llg2178:Majority of Singaporeans are good, honest and hard working people. So are our taxi drivers.Customers are not always right. So are our taxi drivers.

There are many good and commendable taxi drivers in Singapore.Some are retired army officers. Some are retired Police officers.

A taxi driver was arrested for trafficking of controlled drugs recently. He was arrested by CNB officers while he was driving a taxi. But that is just an one-off incident. So is the rude customer episode.

Llg2178:Is it a fact that it is difficult to get a taxi from Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 to Punggol?Why it is difficult to get a taxi from Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 to Punggol when they are 28k++ taxis on the road
