SINGAPORE - The Gojek driver involved in a dispute caught on a video that went viral earlier this year has been issued a warning by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) over the incident.
In response to queries, the LTA said on Wednesday (May 8) that the warning was issued to private-hire car driver Kamaruzzaman Abdul Latiff for the unauthorised recording and disclosure of a video of himself and a female passenger in his vehicle.
The spat occurred on Jan 29 this year, and the LTA had summoned the driver for an interview in early February.
An LTA spokesman said: "LTA would like to remind all taxi drivers and private-hire car drivers that they are not allowed to make recordings within their vehicles without LTA's approval or disclose recordings to unauthorised personnel.
"This is to ensure commuter privacy, safety and protection of personal data."
Mr Kamaruzzaman, 49, declined to comment when approached by The Straits Times.
The conditional warning he received would require him to maintain a clean record for the next 12 months.
ST understands that Mr Kamaruzzaman did not chalk up the number of points required under the Vocational Licence Demerit Points System to warrant a revocation of his licence.
A vocational licence may be revoked if the total number of demerit points awarded within 24 months against the holder exceeds 20.
