Living in Xiamen/ China I was extremely happyto hear today, that cab drivers who refuse to transport passengers because of to short routes and all those we know them all reasons will be finedwith a 3 month driving ban at the 1rst offence!


The second offence however will grant him 3years leaf from driving cabs officially.


Hoooorayyyyy!


However you must at least file a complaint best with Photo of the cabs number or driversdetails. Maybe a selfie with the driver! (if you dare)


If more complaints pile up about some of gods choosen driver/s they will have to answer some tricky questions soon!


Do you believe it will be better at the Airport next time you need a cab to the "Airporthotel"?

When I see something wrong with the cab, the route (tourist-like...) etc. - I take a picture of the dashboard with the licence, this usually is enough to get the things straight even without making a call...

One thing - I dare to do it while on the busy street, but I wouldn't on the empty road ...

It's good that authorities focuses on this phenomenton of the "short route denial"... Once in Beijing I asked the policeman to help, it miraculoulsy solved the issue and the driver who only wanted "airport" now was "happy to drive me to the hotel few streets away"

Yes - I guess all foreigners have encountered such or similar situations. However I have also encountered moaning cab drivers in Germany, esp. at Airports! But as per law they take you without long arguing. Mostly only a comment/ question like “do you have any idea how long we wait here for getting at a passenger?"

I lived in Xiamen for awhile.  Our apartment was a new complex on the mainland pretty much on the edge of the city.  The problem we had even once we got on the mainland via the BRT was that drivers didn't want to take us to our apartment.  They said it was hard to get another fare out there, but of course as soon as they dropped anyone off they sped off.  Kinda of hard to get a fare if you aren't going to wait around for 5 minutes.  My wife said all we had to do was call the company or tell the driver we would but Miss Bleeding Heart felt sorry for them and usually wouldn't do it unless I complained.
