Pirate taxis

Two young lives were lost recently because they hired a rental car being used as a pirate taxi in Suva.

We are told that no taxis stopped for them as taxidrivers were in the pick and choose mode.

So much for holding a PSV licence and driver.

I guess the police and LTA will not be bothered to stop and check a rental car carrying passengers for obvious reasons.

Is this the new trend where Fijians can become a legal pirate taxi by using a rental car as a pirate taxi?

Shame on you taxidrivers, had one of you stopped that night, two young lives would still be alive today.

Police and LTA, it is time to crack down on the rental car business.
