I saw something in the news recently about making all cab fares payable up-front...is that a logical solution, or does it just cause you headaches at the time?

Two in one night. Bastards. And this on top of business being extremely poor and challenging. Time to make a definite career change...
Sorry to hear about this Adrian. As if it wasn't hard enough these days without the runners. Over thirty you reckon ? I believe it, this group is probably in more financial shit then anyone else and coke doesn't come cheap these days either, so the cabbie must be short changed.
The thing about up front payment....can you imagine the Dickheads wanting to argue the way travelled because the had to prepay you ? You rippin me off mate, shoulda gone XYZ way...blah, blah, blah.

Its time to get back to brain surgery Adrian, lobotomies are messy but not as messy as dealing with this crowd.

Yes, Paul, it's coming. I learnt today that a trial is currently underway on the Central Coast so it may be sooner rather than later.

Rainer, just make it a habit with drunks to fire up the sat/nav. If they can't nominate a route, then let Cindy do the squawking.

Yeah, tough weekend at the office. Getting too old for this town. It's bloody relentless.

Low life p....s

If a ride is worth taking, it is worth paying for. The low down mongrels.

I'm happy for a "pay up front" or "deposit means of payment with cabbie". It can hardly be complained about.

I generally overpay cabbies nowdays. Sort of paying back the past - when I was younger (& skint) cabbies were usually very kind to me, rounding the fare down, & on a few occassions suspending the meter when I when inside to try to book a hotel room (or something).

I ALWAYS ASK FOR MONEY UPFRONT ON FARES THAT ARE GOING TO RUN OVER $20 ESP WHEN I PICK UP FROM A STREET AND NOT A PHONE BOOKING FROM A HOUSE(AS LEAST THERE YOU HAVE SOME FALLBACK ON IDING THE SCUMBAGS)2 RUNNERS IN 1 NIGHT NOT REAL GOOD,I'VE ONLY HAD 5 IN 32 YEARS AND THE LAST WAS ABOUT 4 YEARS AGO MAYBE I'M LUCKY.
