When the taxi is not moving they barely earn and most don't own the Taxi but rent them, so no they don't really get paid if they take one hour to do 5 miles

They DO If the meter is Running, It's Called " WAITING Time "

What's the point if the 1584 hotline do not speak English. 

They wanted a Thai to speak to them when i rang 2 weeks ago?

Crazy. 

The point is they aren't very concerned with non-Thai passengers.

Really? In this random picture 7 out of 12 are driven by owner drivers.

Green/yellow taxis are 'individually' owned, not 'driver' owned.  You'll find that many, if not most, are leased/rented from the owner.

Crazy. 

And if you can produce the Thai speaker...they want licence tag number. Color of taxi. Exact time. The driver's name and address. Well maybe not the last one but you get the drift. Ridiculous Thailand. :1zgarz5:

Not ridiculous how are they going to find the taxi without any details ? So if your going to complain just take pictures of the licenseplate of the taxi or the guys taxi card. How do you expect them to do their job.
