No politics please, we are cab-drivers
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.
