Cab drivers behaving badly

05:01 AM January 07, 2019

Refusal by taxi drivers to drop customers at designated places and charge them appropriately has been a serious issue in the Philippines.

Laws have been enforced but with little impact, and customers continue to suffer.

But I would like to highlight that not all cab drivers are devoid of morality and ethics, and often have extended exemplary services to many in need of help and immediate support.

However, this problem has been around for decades now, with no real remedies made. The government must resolve this problem, particularly for foreign tourists visiting the Philippines every year.
