Taxi Tales

Re­sponses to our on­line story (“Hongkonger Wins Case Against Taxi Who Re­fused to Cross the Har­bor,” May 23) about Hongkonger Faisal Mo­hammed, who got a cab driver fined $3,000 for re­fus­ing to take him to his desina­tion

(see My Per­fect HK, up­per right).

In the last 3 years cab driv­ers in HK have got worse and worse, they have be­come so ar­ro­gant and rude, and very of­ten can’t be both­ered to even stop and pick pas­sen­gers up, and then, when we the pas­sen­gers turn to Uber they freak out and go on strike, I’m so happy for this guy that he won his court case, and that he made the ef­fort to go through with it un­til the end... Good for him.... I re­ally re­ally wish the po­lice would sort this is­sue out once and for all.

I am a tourist and I was a vic­tim be­fore. I sat in the taxi but was chased out by this very rude taxi driver. On a sec­ond in­ci­dent I was scolded by the taxi driver for go­ing to a des­ti­na­tion which seemed too near for him. Woii! I was not sit­ting in your taxi for free ok? I still have to pay!! Blardy id­iot! And how could I know it was far or near, I am not from HK.

Why only HK$3,000? Should have been 90,000, and ban him to drive for 1 month.

Lol I am glad that some­one had the time and ef­fort to sue the taxi driver. Good stuff.

Those rude taxi driv­ers never learned a les­son. This is hap­pen­ing con­stantly ev­ery sin­gle day.

Bob Dra­peau

A lot of them can’t speak even sim­ple English, in­ter­na­tional fi­nance cen­ter my ass.

Al­bert Hui

@Al­bert They are taxi driv­ers be­cause they are not re­ally ed­u­cated. In Hol­land they also claim to be in­ter­na­tional, yet most of the taxi driv­ers also don’t speak English.

Uber - it’s the only way! [Taxis] won’t cross the har­bour; won’t go to Sai Kung; won’t even un­lock the doors un­til they know the des­ti­na­tion (TST); won’t go fur­ther than Wan Chai (I was try­ing to get from Wan Chai to Pok Fu Lam)... Omg, just over it! This isn’t a taxi ser­vice.
