Taxi Drivers full stop. Can't believe it's never come to my mind to put that on here before reading other people's references just now. Can't stand them. And I'm not singling out races.

Night rider buses (much, much cheaper).

24 hour trains on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.

Simple.

I'm not trying to say they're not a necessary potential course of action at times. But the huge amount of intentional wrong turns and high disregard for road rules (Stop signs, speed limits, etc) bugs me.

From what I hear American ones (in particular NYC) aren't that much different to our either. Expensive here too. 45 km from Perth city to my house and it's actually cheaper to take a limo than it is to take a taxi that distance here.

I've been pretty lucky with taxi drivers, I just always seem to get stuck with the talkative ones. Although I've heard a few storys from mates about drivers deliberately taking longer routes to get a little bit of extra cash.

I had one try take three wrong turns between my house and work when I caught it in the middle of the night once (used to do graveyard shift), a trip that's only four turns total and he screwed around on three of them trying to take the wrong turn.

especially when you tell them to take one route which you know for sure is quicker and they go against it and say "no we will take this one, its more quicker". Cheeky bastards

The majority of taxi drivers out there (Indian or otherwise) are absolutely fine. If I take a taxi, I can often have a good convo with one no problemo.

There is the odd minority though that are unpleasant... that's the same in any job mind, but because taxi drivers have gained that stereotype, you tend to hear about them more.

Taxis are bloody expensive though. Particularly Sunday nights, I've found (they seem to charge more then for some reason out this way)

We had one last night. We gave him around $15 up front yet he still wanted more. I'm like we'll pay you the rest when we get to our destination (all four of us were staying at the same place) and then he's like give me your card and we'll go from there, to which I'm thinking there's absolutely NO WAY I'm giving my bank card (with a helluva lot of $$$ on it) to anybody other than my Mum. So when we got to our destination, with no $$$ left, we just bailed. The guy was a prick anyway. Tried to take a dodgy route, we were onto him straight away.
