Better walk than take a cab



In an attempt to counter the greed of taxi drivers in Mansoura, activists called on people to walk on Monday instead of taking a cab, as taxi drivers do not switch on the meters and ask for exaggerated tariffs.
 
The campaign started on the “Mansoura Today” Facebook page and demands that taxi drivers not decline passengers or take different passengers going to different destinations because they are not public buses.
 
The activists have threatened to escalate measures if the government does not control the taxi drivers.
