Fake Taxi Driver Fined NT$100,000|偽裝計程車載客 違法白牌車罰10萬.扣照
There are drivers in Changhua painting their car the same color as taxis and illegally hired themselves out as taxi drivers outside Changhua Train Station. As the cars didn't have meters, people reported them to the Motor Vehicles Office. Inspectors and police were able to get their license plate numbers and fine them. They also suspended the drivers' license and registration.
Police and Motor Vehicles Office inspectors stop this yellow car outside Changhua Train Station. There are two migrant worker passengers in the car with the driver. Although the car looks exactly like a taxi, it is actually a private car. The driver has been driving passengers without a taxi license and was therefore issued a fine.
We were informed about these taxis that are yellow but are not real taxis. They were personal cars posing as taxis. These vehicles may have been legal taxis at some point in time, but then became personal cars and then were painted yellow again. They were of course not legal taxis.
The Changhua Motor Vehicles Office says it has received many tips recently about fake taxi drivers driving meterless taxis outside Changhua Train Station. Apart from the illegality of this, the drivers have also affected the income of licensed taxi drivers.
We don't have criminal records. We all meet the government's regulations. Do (the drivers) of these (personal cars) have prior convictions? You don't know. And then secondly, they -- if you really want to file a complaint, where are you going to send it to?
If (the drivers of licensed taxis) get into an accident, you'll be able to find them. There are more protections in place.
The police and Motor Vehicles Office have investigated five illegal taxi cases since July. Two of the five involved former taxi drivers who painted their personal cars to look like taxis. Both were fined NT$100,000 under the Highway Act and Transportation Management Regulations and had their licenses and registration suspended for four months.
