Dear A.S.S. Editor
The Grabhitch driver who was filmed using his phone while ferrying a passenger and subsequently became infamous for it as the video was widely circulated online, had been suspended by Grab.
A spokesman for the company said that it suspended the driver as texting while driving is a “clear violation of road traffic law as well as our Grab drive code of conduct”.
Grab also reiterated that they take the safety of their passengers and other road users seriously and do not accept irresponsible driver behaviour. They have been no word yet if the authorities are taking any action against the driver. The identity of the driver was also not confirmed by Grab.
