As for the colorful personalities of the drivers, you get three types of drivers. One is someone who cons anyone who doesn?t seem to know the reasonable fair that should be charged for the trip ? mainly being drivers of ?black? taxis. The other is a person who cons tourists, even when using a ?white? taxi which makes use of a meter system to calculate the fair. Lastly, there is the driver who is working an honest job. He will never overcharge you, he will never deny you the correct change and he will never drive other routes to make up for the short distance. The first two types are the minority, but as all drivers, they don?t mean any danger, they are just trying to make a living. The ?black? taxis have no meter system so it is compulsory to agree on a fair before getting into the car. That way neither the driver nor the passenger can take advantage of each other.
