A police officer named PO3 Marlon Tan, who is wearing plain clothes, hailed a taxi cab from Quezon City Police District-Masambong Station to Novaliches at around 4 am. The taxi driver, Christopher Gonzales of Gaddi Taxi (UWL 690), refused to accept the passenger's request therefore police officer Tan asked for his drivers's license but instead, an ordinance violation ticket was given to him.
With that, the police officer filed complaints to the taxi driver; refusal to board or convey passenger and for driving without a license.
For those who are unaware, you as a passenger, have the right to file a complaint if a driver refused to bring you to your destination. If passengers will be able to report snub taxi drivers, imagine how many of them will be detained.
