Travel Etiquette Do's and Don'ts: Reckless Taxi Driver

Russell Weekes

How to Cope With a Reckless Taxi Driver

Do...

…pay the fare. Your receipt may be helpful in reporting the driver. Tipping, however, is optional.

…record the medallion or car number. Local authorities rely on passenger feedback to keep unsafe drivers off the streets.

Don’t...

…yell. Your driver is a professional. Phrase your complaint as a personal preference—not an attack.

…stay in a cab if you feel unsafe. If your driver doesn’t respond to feedback, ask him to pull over and then find another ride.
