Taxi!



Taxi drivers exercised their 'democratic rights' to stage a blitzkrieg gridlock, and it worked: the government gave in to their demands. So don't be surprised if the taxi drivers have additional demands like these:
. Taxis should have second priority to ambulances in traffic, and everybody has to get out of the way if we toot our horns and turn on blinking lights
. There should be no speed limit for taxis and we can overtake from any direction
. A taxi driver must be allowed to smoke while driving, be allowed to have a few pegs at night and listen to loud music on the radio
. All drivers have the right to refuse short distance fares and charge what they like at night
. We refuse to wear uniforms, which would infringe on our freedom. We should be free to wear whatever we like, or nothing at all.
. l The responsibility of any personal items is the passenger's. If anything is left behind, it belongs to the driver.
. If the driver doesn't have change, he should be allowed to keep big notes and all drivers have a right to a ten percent tip
. The destination is up to the discretion of the driver, not the passenger
