The first of its kind about the inside of the Taxi Industry, this book has something for everyone: for cabbies a common theme with which they can identify; a word or two about the various authorities, companies and cab owners; and for the paying public heaps of interesting information, where over forty pages of their questions are specifically answered: Can I smoke in a cab? How much does a cabbie earn? Can I book a taxi in advance? What is a restricted cab? Should I tip a cabbie? What is multiple hiring? Do cabbies get solicited? How can I get a taxi licence? Do taxis carry only people and their luggage?
