Yes, another rude taxi driver recently went beast mode and cursed at his female passenger. The reason? Well, he insisted that an additional P50 should be paid to him but the passenger declined to give him. And although there was no video to prove it, she took photos of the taxi driver and posted them on her Facebook page, along with the details of her scary experience.
According to Hannah Quiwa, she was with her 15-year-old sister and 10-year-old niece from Cambridge Condominium to Robinsons Galleria last Friday, January 8, 2016. But while the taxi was moving, she said the driver told her to pay additional P50 due to heavy traffic. Nevertheless, the taxi driver kept on complaining and cursing during the entire travel.
Ms. Quiwa said that the taxi driver rudely interrupted her conversation with her friend over the phone. She added that the taxi driver drove recklessly and passed on a different and longer route so that the fare on the meter will be higher. To make matters worst, he cursed on her father when they met him at Robinsons because the latter won’t give the additional P50 fare.
Hannah said her father asked the taxi driver why she should pay more than what the meter indicated, but the latter cursed at him. Her father told the driver that it was not about the money, but about his being rude and being a reckless driver. She didn’t pay the additional P50, and identified the driver as Rolando Camara and the plate number of his taxi is AAO 7317 (NCR).

I rode this Taxi with my 15 year old younger sister and my 10 year old niece from our village to Robinsons to meet my parents. When we got on the taxi, he told us to give him 50 extra due to traffic, it took a while for us to get a cab so I told I will pay extra if there was really that much traffic. He kept on complaining and swearing throughout the whole time he was driving. I was on the phone with my friend when he told me he got a grabtaxi right after 5 minutes only so I said that I should have tried grabtaxi (cause it took me almost an hour to get this cab).
Mr. taxi driver didn’t feel ashamed he was even listening to my conversation on the phone and interfered shouting at me saying ‘Gusto mo ba mag grab, cge mag grab kayo walang problema un!’ And was attempting to stop the car to let me out. I wasnt planning to argue with such a person so I just told me him no its fine. He continued driving and instead of taking the route at Ortigas Avenue, he went through pasig and went through numerous streets in C. Raymundo to increase the meter fare. I doubt I am wrong about his intentions because there is no way a usual driver can mistaken 2 different one-way street in one ride. I contacted my dad to wait for us at the drop point in the mall because I refuse to pay 50 extra to someone who wasn’t just rude and reckless but also trying to making a fool of me.
When we got in the Mall my dad didnt have a hard time finding which taxi because he was pressing his horn at someone crossing the road in front of the the mall at the pedestrian line!! My dad immediately ask him how much was the fare and why add 50 pesos. He started shouting at my dad. It escalated so fast that he the guards at the mall had to interfere. He continuously shouted at my dad and I saying numerous offensive things as I was telling him that he was being rude to me. My dad was telling him that it wasnt about the money its about how he was a reckless driver and rude to young passengers, he replied the most ridiculous thing ‘Put*ngina! Dahil lang 50 pesos magpapakamatay ka gago!’ Then continued being hysterical.
I gave him what was written in the meter and the guards told him to drive away, he was still hysterical when he was driving away.
