KUALA LUMPUR TAXI DRIVERS GAIN INTERNATIONAL RATING FOR BAD ATTITUDE?


PETALING JAYA, Malaysia - Malaysian taxi drivers are gaining international recognition or rather, infamy for their bad attitude.
British taxi comparison site LondonCabs.co.uk has placed Kuala Lumpur taxi drivers at the top of a list comparing the 10 worst taxi drivers across the globe.
"Drivers from Kuala Lumpur are well known for overcharging clients and detouring.
"Even though they are supposed to charge by the meter, many drivers refuse from doing so," said LondonCabs.
"The best advice is to simply wait for another vehicle if the driver resists using the meter," it said.
The article further described taxis  in Kuala Lumpur  as "rather 
old and in poor condition".
Rome's taxi drivers came in second after Kuala Lumpur for their exorbitant rates and rudeness.
"Most people cannot even find a vehicle available in Rome. Cars are scarce and the drivers are often rude and difficult to deal with," said LondonCabs.
"If it's raining, expect to pay double or triple the price for a vehicle in Rome," it added.
Bangkok minicab drivers came in third in the list for drivers getting lost and not knowing the way.
Other cities that made the list were Paris, New York, Mumbai, Zurich, Cairo, Shanghai and Moscow.
LondonCabs said the 10 places listed had taxis that "you may be better off avoiding if you want to have a positive and uplifting transportation experience".
