»Posted by on Jul 13, 2018 in Taxi Driver | 0 comments

Commuting is a mode of travel everyone in their life will experience at least once. Everyone in the world uses trains, taxis, cars, and buses for their needs to get to places for work, school, etc. It is one of the most popular ways to get around especially for majority of people because not everyone can afford their own cars or hire drivers to get them to places. Commuting is one of the easiest ways to get where you want to go and taxis are one of the most popular for people and tourists wherever they go. Here are some safety tips for all when riding an airport limo transfers in Honolulu.

Taxi riding has been in our world for many years and it does not seem like it will stop ever. We all have that one friend who has a friend that had some bad luck or was not taking the precautionary measures and ended up in a bad situation. First and foremost, do not be afraid to talk to the driver.  

 

More often than not, these driver are there to bring you wherever you need to be because that is how they earn a living and keep their families afloat. Not all taxi drivers are bad, it is just a misguided stereotype that has caught on due to people that have had bad experiences with taxi drivers. According to tourists and locals in California, a taxi driver  was so courteous that he had texted them 30 mins before they called a cab that he was waiting already in the hotel parking waiting to take them to the airport for their flight.  

 

This is also a great way to ensure good taxis, which is to call for them. Calling for taxis will be much easier than hailing a cab from the streets because calling a cab will make you the cab’s number one priority especially if you need to be somewhere immediately for a flight or an important business meeting for example.  

 

Another tip to check is if the child lock of the door is unlocked. In case of emergency, meaning the worst case scenario it will be easy to flea the car. You will probably never have to use it but it is better to be safe than sorry because life is too precious and keeping yourself safe does not make you a bad person. Never take a taxi alone drunk.  

 

This makes you the most easy and vulnerable target to stealing and whatnot. Be more responsible for your actions and be smart enough to make the decision that will make you safe. A way to spot if your taxi driver is accredited is the meter, identification badge, and radio. All taxis that are accredited must have these inside the vehicle if not it would be for the best to get out and find a new taxi. Another tip is to know where you are going ahead of time. Be it by using waze on your phone or just knowing the way to the place you are headed to so that you are comfortable with the way the driver passes 

 

Lastly, and most importantly be kind to the driver. Talk to him a bit have a little chat because they are human beings trying to make a living and sometimes they may be grumpy just because they are tired but they still have to work just to make ends meet. Riding taxis is never gonna put you in danger if you ride smart and keep these tips in mind.
