How to Deal With Taxi Scams in the Philippines?


The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) is planning to ban white taxis at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) following reports of abusive drivers demanding additional charges from their passengers.
MIAA general manager Ed Monreal said that they will implement the ban of white taxis should another complaint is filed and proven upon investigation, otherwise, the image and the reputation of the airport will be dragged down by them and the MIAA chief will not let it happen.
The vulnerable victims are Filipino passengers from provinces, including overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), and foreigners.

In a video uploaded by Fil-Am vlogger Haley Dasovich, she saw that the driver did not turn the taximeter on and when she asked about it, the driver said that she either has to pay P500 or take another taxi.    The taxi driver was arrested and the NAIA general manager was fuming in anger saying that the image of the airport, which they carefully building in good faith will be dragged down by the likes of these taxi drivers, thus, the management is mulling for the ban of white taxis within NAIA.     The taxi was already impounded and authorities will invite Dasovich to file formal charges against Frederick Cayanan. LTFRB said that driver is facing revocation of driver's license.
