Duterte warns Taxi Drivers who does not give exact change
Presumptive President Rodrigo Duterte has issued a warning to cab drivers who refuse to give exact change to passengers.
During a televised press conference in Davao City on Monday, May 16, Duterte said such act is considered “extortion or illegal exaction”.
He explained: “Yung mga taxi both dito sa Davao pati sa Maynila, alam mo pag kinuha mo pera ng tao dahil wala kang sinsilyo (coins or change) at di mo binalik, that is estafa.”
“It is not your money and you go away with it,” Duterte added.
|Passengers will also be given the right to direct the route and expect the driver to suggest the cheapest way possible to the destination.|
