start grading taxisBy Pat Law • Mar 29th, 2008 • Category: Lead Story, The Oddball
If we have a food grading system for food establishments so that food manufacturers and sellers are wary of their hygiene and food safety standards (or the lack of), and that they recognize the need for improvements, why do we not have a similar grading system for taxis? Why, do the taxi providers actually think they provide “best-in-class” service? Save for a rare few, taxi drivers I’ve come across shouldn’t even be given the license to drive for a living.
Now, imagine if all taxi drivers are subjected to a grading system of which their grades would be slapped upon their windscreen as decals for all commuters’ reference. Wouldn’t the quality of service of the taxi industry improve? In interest of all abused consumers, I have created a taxi grading system available for download. Feel free to shove it up his ass pass it on to each taxi driver you encounter.
And don’t forget to vote for the authority to impose the grading system! Hey, in a world now driven by social media, there is no better time for consumers to take control.
