TaxiKick – Online Tool to Report Abusive Taxi Drivers in the Philippines
I have written before a rant about taxis refusing to convey passengers and noted some ways on how you can report them. Aside from the information mentioned in that post, I’d like to share this new tool that was recently launched that aims to be used as a tool to report abusive taxi drivers in the Philippines. It is called TaxiKick.
The interface is very easy to use. You need to provide the following information:
- Plate Number
- Violation (picklist)
- Taxi Name (optional)
- Comments (optional)
At the end of the day, Taxikick will report this to the authorities such as LTFRB and MMDA. We hope the authorities would listen because this is a great way for passengers to fight back on those abusive drivers who care more about their income rather than to provide service.
As of writing, the tool is in beta so I’m sure people would have a lot of suggestions to improve this one. Here’s some of mine
- Status of complaints? (have they been forwarded? acted upon?)
- Graphs of violations (most violations?)
- Important info such as date and time of incident, driver name and taxi company name
- How to prove these complains? (truth vs made up complaints?)
They can be found at http://taxikick.com/ and their FB https://www.facebook.com/taxikick?sk=wall&filter=1
Till next time,
