Good day! It's Show Time! Miketagz Again!

@miketagz In the UK there have been many attacks by Uber drivers and many scams. In my city it costs around £18 to go from city centre to the airport. People have been charged £40-£60 by Uber!

@Essjayd That's really huge amount. Mine I had to wait for non peak hours to get a low fare.

My husband and I had a bad experienced with airport taxi. Imagine the driver want us to pay $30 from airport to our home but if he will use his taxi meter it's only around $4 to $5 since it was early in the morning and there was no traffic by that time.

@miketagz My husband called a police and told about our location, good thing the police came right away and waited us in our place. We even filed a complaint in the police station and called the taxi operator as well.
