• It is imperitive for the driver of an unengaged taxi to take you to your destination regardless of time and distance. Non compliance to do so is an offence and you have every right to complain to the police (dial 100) and mention the taxi’s license number and the driver’s name. Usually such an act will result in the taxi driver complying with your request.
