Taxi passengers are part of the problem
THERE is no doubt that taxi drivers who continuously disobey the law by attempting to skip traffic lights and, at times, driving on the opposite side of the road into oncoming traffic are attempting to murder their passengers and the drivers who are in their way.
We seem to have accepted this behaviour as the norm and go about our business without recognising the potential catastrophe that lies ahead. And those who are charged with enforcing the rules of the road don’t seem to care that much. Why? It seems that the consequences don’t seem that relevant until someone dies.
Unlawful taxi drivers aren’t the only culprits; passengers, too, have their share of blame by continuing to allow it to happen and by supporting these drivers. If passengers know the outcomes of the unlawful taxi drivers’ actions and accept it, they are clearly part of the problem.
