Have you been a victim of abusive taxi drivers? Have you been asked to pay a fixed amount instead of the fare determined by the taxi meter, or to pay a certain premium in addition to the meter-based fare? Have you been denied by a taxi driver during peak hours or rainy nights since your destination is away from his preferred ones?
Report these forms of abuse to the Mayor’s Office through the numbers (082) 227-6271, (082)224-5885 or 0920-6160904. Make sure that you get the taxi’s name and unit number, plate number and driver’s name (if possible).
With Christmas coming, we can expect several incidents to surface. To stop this kind of abuse, we need to do our part. Report cases of abuse to the proper authorities.
