The people of Mzansi react to what went down between the drivers
Everyone knows taxi drivers have no skaam and will do whatever they want because they know people fear them... however, that does not make what they do, ok!
Peeps took to the comment section to show the man some support, letting him know that what happened to him was not on. One person did highlight that messing with taxi drivers is not worth the money he lost though.
Take a look at some of the comments
“Last week they made me pay 200, I see those guys (3) every day and they don't see me. One day they gone pay me back with interest, I am watching them”
“Don’t try anything with taxi drivers, please... Your life is important, they will win.”

Defiant taxi driver refuses to pull over for cops, student hilariously makes a break for it
In other taxi driver news… Briefly News reported that popular Twitter user Daniel Marven shared a 30-second clip of a taxi being pulled over. The perspective was from those inside the vehicle who seemed to have been yelling at the driver to listen to the police officers.
The clip starts with the cops, siren blaring, signalling the driver of the public transport vehicle to pull over. The driver starts speeding up and the police vehicle speeds to the other side of the taxi in order to block him.
A small crash sound is heard and during the entire ordeal, the name 'Gaddafi' is being screamed out by the passengers. A child dressed in his school uniform seemed to be on the edge of his seat and as soon as the taxi came to a standstill, he hopped up with his bag and made his way to the exit.
