Quentin Fottrell in the Irish Times Index section last Saturday highlighted something that always annoys me. Why the hell do taxi drivers with passengers in the car still leave their roof light on? As per the Index:
Deceptive taxi lights You drive down the street with your big yellow light on, we wave like a lunatic only to find there’s someone in your car.
Don’t forget though that a taxi driver can have his light on but can still drive past you – he might think you’re an undesirable. However, as far as I could find out, he cannot have his light on and have an empty car but then turn off his light as he’s driving past you.
