No politics please, we are cab-drivers

video
Taxi drivers say they have been hit by the political divisiveness that has affected the whole country too.

Passengers have recently complained that they couldn't discuss politics with cab-drivers without getting into an argument. Some Bangkokians have decided to avoid taxis altogether because of the potential political conflicts. Some taxi-drivers said they have been given a bad name after some cab-drivers were said to have used their cars to block traffic at several intersections that sparked the "Bloody Songkran" incidents.

That's why a group of taxi-drivers has produced about 10,000 leaflets pasted on their cars to declare: "We are just making a living. We have no political affiliations..."

So, if you want to have a "neutral" ride, catch one of those with this sticker.
