Let­ter writer asks ‘why do taxi driv­ers think they are rac­ing driv­ers?’

7 Days in Dubai - - EVENTS -

“Not all taxi driv­ers are the same. Some pas­sen­gers asked them to go fast as they are go­ing to be late. If you don’t lis­ten to the cus­tomer it can lead to ar­gu­ments and cus­tomers might com­plain about your be­hav­iour and driver could be sus­pended for three days. Also, in a 12-hour shift they have to reach the target of 400+ daily, or will be pe­nalised. And, when it comes to re­cruit­ment, ev­ery in­di­vid­ual and com­pany needs a driver with taxi ex­pe­ri­ence. You can­not put all flow­ers in same bas­ket.”
