Taxi driver behaviour

2008-03-26 00:00

The lead story on yesterday’s front page told of the appalling behaviour of taxi drivers, especially in northern areas of the city, who routinely run cars off the road in heavily congested streets. One alarming technique is for convoys of five or six taxis to overtake the queue of traffic by driving in the oncoming lane. Unfortunately, this is but one extreme form of a kind of taxi chauvinism experienced throughout the city, and, according to Msunduzi traffic and security division spokesman Lalloo Parbhoo, resources are limited and taxi drivers cannot be specifically policed. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
