Yes, by refusing to use the meter, as others said. Get your thumb off the scales

And also charging high rentals to the Drivers

4,000 a day? That's more than what most uber (or cab) drivers make in the US! I hope the experience humbles him and has him reflecting on his past ripping people off. A cynic in me says it's doubtful though.

4,000 a day, not just from the Taxi fare but also from renting out his cars.

Seems like a fairly low income considering the risk of outlay / finance on the cars. 

 

That said: Understandably there is little sympathy for a Pattaya taxi driver who, for the most part have rather negative reputations preceding them. But, this is one of the guys who have found something else positive to do, others may not be so willing and may turn to other avenues of revenue generation. The obvious bigger concern is as people get more desperate they may turn to crime, potentially more confrontational crime, muggings, burglaries etc

 

I have more sympathy for the Bangkok Taxi drivers, far fewer of them are were chancers, only those parked up in tourist areas and certain areas of central Sukhumvit - yet the everyone has taken a massive hit. 

 

The World really needs to get back to normal as quickly as possible - too many people are really hurting from these lockdowns. I hope the vaccines can get issued amongst those in need and in high risk groups as quickly as possible. 

 

Once a those older than 60 and in high risk groups have been vaccinated I see no reason why any country cannot open back up as normal and hopefully people can get back to their lives and recover from the economic crisis this unfortunate turn of events has placed them in.

Had he not overcharged by refusing to turn the meter on for 9 years then I may have some sympathy, plenty honest people out there in a worse position than him.

 

The only truth !!!
