Taxi Driver Harasses and Threatens Lady Passenger After She Refused to Pay an Extra P100
Nowadays, we should always take extra caution when riding taxis. More and more taxi-related crimes are being reported, and most of them are not even caught. Thanks to different social media networks, these criminals are being exposed to the public.
A Facebook user posted this viral photo, showing a driver and his taxi’s plate number. According to the passenger, she was harassed after she refused the driver’s request to add P100 to the taxi fare. The Facebook post read:
Dahil late nako kelangan ko mag taxi, sa kasamaang palad SIYA nasakyan ko. Ganto nangyare..
Nagpara ako ng taxi sa may YP UPS5.. Pag sakay ko..
Manong: Mam, san kayo? Me: Sa Azure po, sa West Service Road sa Bicutan near SM Bicutan lang po manong. Turo ko na lang po. Manong: “walang kibo”
..bago mag SM BF..
Manong: grabe traffic Mam, add kayo 100 ha. Me: “nganga” huh? Para san po manong? Sobra naman ata yun. Kaya nga my metro at nag ti-tip naman po ako.
Manong: ang traffic kase dito tapos dadaan pa tayong west service mas matraffic dun tsaka wala akong magiging pasahero pabalik. Me: hala manong ee bat kelangan sakin nyo singilin pati yun. Rush hour naman po madameng pasahero ngayon. Manong: 100 lang naman add nyo mam muka naman kayong mayaman. Sige 50 na lang. Me: Manong paki baba na lang po ako. Paki tabe lang. Manong: wag na. “biglang nag lock ng mga pinto.” Manong: kunin ko na lang number nyo.. Kahit number na lang.

Since I was running late I needed to ride a taxi, unfortunately, I flagged this person down. This is what happened.. I flagged down a cab at YP UPS5.. As soon as I got in..
Driver: Mam, where are you headed?
Me: To Azure, West Service Road at Bicutan near SM Bicutan, sir. I’ll just give you directions.
Before SM BF..
Driver: Mam, the traffic’s heavy, add P100 okay.
Me: *jaw dropped* Huh? What for sir? I think that’s too much. The trip is metered and I even give tips.
Driver: The traffic’s so heavy, and we still need to pass through West Service road where traffic is worse. Besides, I’ll have a hard time getting passengers on the way back.
Me: Why do you have to charge for that? It’s rush hour anyway, there are many passengers.
Driver: I’m just asking for a hundred pesos, you look rich anyway. Okay, how about 50?
Me: Sir, just drop me off here. Please pull over.
Driver: Never mind. *Locks all doors* Can I just have your number? Just your number.
Of course I panicked.
Me: Sir, I told you to drop me off. I’ll report you.
*He caught me taking pictures*
Driver: You dare take pictures huh? Don’t you know I just got out of prison? Be careful. Something bad might happen to you. F*ck you. *uttering so many other things*
Me: *I was shaking with fear* I told you to pull over, sir!
Driver: Pay the fare.
Me: Of course I’ll pay. Just let me off here. Pull over please.
Before, I never thought these stories to be true. But when I experienced it firsthand, it was traumatic. How can I ever ride a taxi again? I was especially scared by his veiled threat that he just got out of prison.
