Speaking of traveling, I pondered on a few reasons why there is reluctance in utilizing the taxi service in Malaysia:
There is no reliability in its fare – you have to negotiate for a certain lump sum amount. Even if the taxi driver uses the meter – it might have been rigged.
There is no guarantee that the taxi would want to take you to a place. I’ve heard responses like “no, cannot, that road super-congested.”
Taxi drivers could be quite dangerous in their maneuvers. You’ve seen the way they change lanes, join and exit expressways – whoever the hell you are: get out of the way.
You’ve got more to add?
