S'pore taxi driver, 65, to foot bill for damages after passenger opens left-side rear door, hits BMW & becomes uncontactableWhose fault is it when the passenger is not careful but cannot be held liable?

Why didn’t the driver pull into intended area for passenger pick up/drop off? He just stopped in the road and the BMW driver whizzed by without an ounce of caution. Bad judgment all around.
