This in response to  the news item: ‘Cabbie molests teenager in taxi,’ and other similar, incidents. I strongly urge anyone who enters a taxi to photograph or note down the taxi’s door number quickly before entering and the sending an SMS to a friend or family member. Our maid took a taxi from our building to join her friends at a mall.

he returned 10 minutes later crying saying the driver had spoken badly to her saying he would take her to a hotel instead and reached back to try to grab her. When the struggle caused him to pull over, two men on the sidewalk helped her and waved down a new taxi for her. Without the proper ID of the taxi, no complaint could be made with any entity. Do what whatever it takes to protect yourself.
