Cabs are not a free ride
2:34pm Thursday 19th April 2012 in Letters
WITH reference to the letter in last week’s Guardian from L Donelan, stating that she was shocked by the taxi driver’s actions.
L Donelan should try driving a taxi at night. He or she would be shocked at what drivers have to tolerate. People verbally abuse us, running off without paying the fare, being sick in our cars, and threatening drivers.
This person who was left at the side of the road did not run out of money while buying drinks. She probably did not run out of money getting something to eat in town, but she ran out of money to pay a pre-booked taxi home.
Taxis are not a charity. Drivers pick up people on trust that they will be paid at the end of the journey.
This girl knew she did not have enough cash to pay for the taxi, but still got in. We have a living to make and this girl should prioritise how she spends her cash.
