He is a fellow human being who, like me, would find going to court both unpleasant and inconvenient. Probably similar to me being stopped en-route  to the airport with my wife in my own vehicle.

 

Are you living in a cloud?

No, I'm not, are you?  The driver in question wasn't stopped en-route  to the airport with his wife in his own vehicle.

Ask yourselves this question, why would a taxi driver report a non-Uber driver for dropping off his foreign friend, what would be the point?   If he was doing that just for the hell of it, why did he choose that person to report, did he report every car that dropped someone off?  Is it possible that the taxi driver knew something about the driver who claimed he didn't work illegally for Uber? 

Like, he was talking to his girlfriend?

He was issued a ticket after dropping a friend at the airport.

I know that's what he said, I'm not disputing that he did drop someone off.  So what would be the reason for him in particular at that airport to be reported if that's all he was doing?

Exactly, he was issued a ticket for nothing.,

Very inconvenient.

 

And I said 'similar' as some years ago the police were stopping non-taxi vehicles going to the main airport in order to catch non-official taxis. Many people were  harassed simply for being a foreigner in a vehicle being driven by a Thai.

He didn't do anything wrong.  Why should he have to waste his time and energy?  Do you think it's fine if they start sending you summons for things you didn't do, and you have to go defend yourself?

Guilty until proven innocent.  The next step is nobody can give anybody a ride, since you are technically taking business away from a taxi driver!

So what's his problem?  All he has to do is go to court to dispute the ticket and as long as he is not an Uber driver he'll have a good case.  If he is an Uber driver trying to wriggle put of the fine then Uber will pay his fine as has been previously reported.

How do you prove that you are not an uber driver? 

in court:

"Your honor, Please inspect my smartphone device, it does not have the uber app"
"OBJECTION! The defendant has clearly deleted the app from his device!"

"hmmmmmm...." (at this point the kapao smell starts to be overtaken by a burning smell, must be the judge is trying to think)

"nonsense! if he is not an uber driver, he should prove it!!"

"b-b-b-ut judge, check my smartphone, I have the app called "not an uber driver" installed"

"ok, great, NOT GUILTY!" *SLAMS HAMMER*

And the step after that is that car sales are illegal, selling a vehicle to a private citizen for the purpose of transport is competing with the taxi companies!

The reason is that it's impossible to tell if it's uber or not. If it's a thai driver and a foreign passenger going to the airport it LOOKS like uber. But it could also just be a friend, partner, whatever. That's why it's called a witchhunt,,,, u know what I mean?

Perhaps the court would expect to see evidence that he was a Uber driver. 

 

Of course, it may not be possible for him to prove that he isn't an Uber driver if he really is an illegal Uber driver (which was really my point)!

So your point is that if he is guilty he cannot prove that he is innocent. Ok, good point. What if he is innocent?

 

*Edit* i understand what you are saying now,, you are saying that he is innocent until proven guilty right? And the fact the he dropped people of at the airport does not prove his guilt so he should be allowed to go free unless there is more evidence to prove that he is an uber driver?
