I don’t think I’ve ever received a receipt from a taxi driver since it became the responsibility of taxi drivers to provide a printed receipt upon payment for a taxi journey. Nor have I asked for one either.
Have you ever been given one automatically? Have you ever asked for one? What was the response – was it given or was the machine “not working at the moment”?
Just so you know, if you have a complaint against a taxi driver, you’d be much better off providing a copy of your receipt – it’s the best way to identify the taxi in question, and confirm that you actually used it on the time/date in question.
This taxi spotted yesterday obviously doesn’t hand out receipts. (Apologies again for the crappy N95 pictures).
