In a letter written to this publication, Mr Chiang claimed that he earned just $1700 after working for over a month as a driver. He said that Grabcar drivers have to be aware of many hidden charges that are levied on them, which eats into their earning.

Mr Chiang advised that members of the public should not be taken in my misleading advertisements like this one.

Mr Chiang said, “and there was once I emergency braked on the expressway to avoid an accident. Even though there was no accident, the passenger claimed whiplash against my insurer, and I have to pay $2000 excess.”

Adding: “There goes my $1700 salary, I worked 1+ month for free.”
