We’ve probably all seen the glut of taxis at nighttime in Ireland of late. I did this video last night (it’s very shaky to start) walking along Stephen’s Green and looking down Dawson Street. Taxis on either side of the road and some double upped while more taxis drive past. Every yellow light is someone looking for business.
and another walking towards Merrion Row
Every new Taxi plate gives a little more buffer for the Taxi Regulator. Nice offices that they have. In the end the consumer pays for this and is the one having to listen to all the moaning from the drivers about it. What is it with regulators who are the last people to give a shit about quality or service but all about ensuring revenues for themselves at least?
Update: Numerous racist comments have been moderated after I got linked to by the IrishTaxi.org forum. The commentators directly came from this page. How shameful.
