YSK: Google maps has a feature that alerts you if a taxi driver goes off route

This is useful to avoid the common taxi scam where the driver takes a much longer route with many unnecessary turns. It only notifies you if the taxi driver takes a route, more than 500 meters away from the fastest route it found.

Edit: Here is how: To get Maps to track your ride, look for navigation directions to your destination, and tap theΒ Stay saferΒ button in the menu at the bottom. You'll find the off-route alerts there. Enable them then start the navigation.

Edit 2:

This feature saved me a lot of money today

Thanks to u/firemanjoe911 for finding the link.

Mom tells her Kid they can play on my gaming laptop and freaks out when I say no. Then she demands we pay for her taxi.

I'm a night auditor/front desk associate at a hotel next to a lower mid-sized airport. I deal with lots of dumb shit, but I get the feeling it's all too common to post here until last night.

At around 4AM Mom (aka M) and Kid (aka K) are in the lobby waiting for their 430AM taxi to the airport. Since I'm a NA most of my job is just being there to take care of guest requests, so I bring my gaming laptop with me every night to help kill time. Most of the time I'm just playing some low key music or documentaries on my lap top, but after 2AM I do some gaming to kill time most nights.

M shows up with K to check out and catch a taxi when K notices my laptop. He asks about it and I tell him the make/model. K is obviously a little envious but otherwise really cool. M & K sit in the lobby when suddenly, K is interested in our lobby computer. After getting bored of it in two minutes he whispers to mom and she whispers back. Suddenly K ducks behind the counter and starts trying to play on my

Blueline Taxi

I called Blueline, asked for a taxi to my building, and the operator said "Sure, just take whichever you see first"

It was pouring rain, so I waited in the doorway of my building. After 15-18 min, I called Blueline back and mentioned I had been waiting almost 20 min, and if I perhaps missed the taxi?

She said "Well, did you see any drive by?" and I said "I don't think so .. none pulled up?" and she said "Oh, you have to flag one down .."

I don't understand the purpose of the operator .. why would I call for a taxi, if I have to flag down the taxi .. I can do that on any street downtown without calling?

Anyway .. just feel like this is 'new' .. just me?

A taxi driver may have tried to kidnap me

So I was about 13 at the time this happened. It was coming up for my mum's birthday and I had no idea what to get her so I called my aunt for help. We agreed to meet in town on Saturday afternoon, after my piano lesson so we wouldn't have to rush.

I went to my piano lesson as usual, dropped my books back at the house and went to the bus stop to get the bus into town. As I was waiting, a taxi pulled up and the driver rolled down the window and called out, "are ye going to toon, hen? I'll gie ye a lift."

Without moving closer to the taxi, I replied that I couldn't afford a taxi and the bus would be there in a minute (it was, as usual, running late).

The taxi driver became insistent that I get into his taxi and he wouldn't charge me to go to town. I stood my ground, refusing to get in. His tone became more aggressive as he demanded that I get in to his taxi over the next minute or so.

Someone else arrived at the bus stop and the taxi driver sped off, swearing at me for not getting in

In Cuba, taxi drivers earn a few times more than doctors. Is this a failure of Cuba's system?

I'm an ancom myself, but was wondering about the explanation for this statistic. Please feel free to correct me if I completely misframed the whole thing.

Edit: Here's the source https://youtu.be/n-mUZRP-fpo. I'm aware the video is riddled with BS but I would still like to see some answers.

Edit 2: Thank you for the responses everyone! From what I've gathered, the main reason Cuban doctors earn little money compared to taxi drivers is due to Western imperialism stunting the development of the Cuban economy. Meanwhile, Cuban taxi drivers are earning money from the imperialist countries themselves. On top of this, the difference in pay does not really matter much thanks to the system in place. If anything, this is yet another demonstration of the success of the Cuban system, not a failure.

Fake taxi tried to entice me and my friend inside.

It was cold, dark, and wet; the usual for winter in the UK. It was a small rural village in the north of england and my friend and I where walking very drunk and very 13 (underage drinking is pretty normal here) down the main high street.

What appeared to be a taxi cab ( right size, right features, literally had taxi wrote on it) pulled up beside us. They asked for directions in exchange for a free lift. Of course being drunk, cold and stupid I accepted the free lift.

I went to open one of the back doors expecting to see the inside of a taxi...I didnt. Their was nothing their, not even seats. Being in the condition I was I did not question it. thankfully my friend did. She said "hes a weird man with a weird car. We are not going in" if it wasnt for her i would have got in....let's not meet.

HCMC taxi scam, a cautionary tale (with a happy ending)

TAXI SCAM! A cautionary tale (with a happy ending)...

Coming to Vietnam as a woman traveling solo (32f), I did a fair bit of research on staying safe. I read and heard from multiple sources that taxi scams were common and to only use two reputable taxi companies, MaiLinh or Vinasun.

So, I jumped in what I thought was a 'Vinasun' cab this afternoon to get back to my hotel from Bui Vien St, about 2kms. It was peak hour and walking was impossible.. motorbikes were not only choking the roads but also the footpaths. The driver was extremely friendly.. asking me where I was from, was I married, how many times to Vietnam (ok), how many days had I been here, how old was I (red flag #1). I was also watching our route on Google maps and it seemed like he was going the long way, but ok.

The meter was jumping way too quickly (red flag #2). I knew for the trip it should cost about 40k. He pulled up about 50m from my hotel on the opposite side of an extremely busy main road to let me out and the

LPT: When traveling with friends, have a "common fund" you could use to pay for commonly shared expenses (ex. gas/taxi, tips, etc)

I travel with my friends quite a lot and before every trip we have this wallet and collect ~$20 each which we use for paying shared expenses. One friend will keep the wallet and be in charge of paying. You can replenish it with $20/each again every time the fund has been exhausted. Repeat until the end of your trip. At the end of the trip, we divide the change equally. This way, you can avoid having to do mental math of dividing equally and forgetting who owes you how much every time. Also saves time during transactions.

I work a long commute away from home and depend on the train. There were some issues that caused the trains to be cancelled for hours which left me stranded about 1 and a half hours drive from home.

At the train station there were a few others who were all heading to my city and we decided to split a taxi.

The people were:

Woman 1,we'll call her Lisa.shes heading to my city to see a gig. Was a bit tipsy.

Man 1, we'll call him Kyle. Travelling with Lisa (they're not dating but from their conversation seemed like friends/fuck buddies). He was beyond drunk and it made me a bit comfortable because he was pissing in a bush and kept making vulgar comments about Lisa's hot cousin.

Man 2, we'll call him John. He was travelling alone and mentioned that he lived in my city, just moved there but was in that town we were leaving from as he just broke up with his girlfriend and was picking stuff up from her place.

My wife and I are in Budapest for the weekend. We got an official taxi this evening and when he pulled in at our destination the meter showed 6500 forint (approx €20) which was 3x more than the set tariffs displayed in the taxi. I questioned the charge and after some mumbling he said he could do it for 5000, I said this was still too much and he decided to move the car further off the road to discuss. In doing so he reversed into an unattended parked car, he suddenly couldn't wait to drive off so told us to forget about it and there was now no charge. Thanks for the free lift asshole!

I did a runner on a taxi on NYE, caused a local alert for thieves.

I was staying with my grandma whilst my grandad was in hospital, so got a taxi home around 4am, had keys and was staying long term. I was all kinds of wonky and didn’t realise i had no money until we neared her home. I didn’t want to wake her to get cash... feared she may not even have any in the house, so i stopped him 10 houses early and claimed I’d run into β€˜my house’ to grab it.

I walked into a neighbours front gate, into their back garden and dove through the hedge at the back into the horse fields behind and then walked to the back of mt grandmas and went in to find my grandma waiting up for me.

The next morning, we discovered taximan had banged the neighbours door down to try and get his money, the police were called, and everyone was trying to work out what happened and why there was a large hole in the fence.

Got away scott free and grandma found it hilarious as she hates that neighbour, but i feel awful about it especially to the poor taxi driver working NYE :(
