For most commuters who rides taxi cabs, we all share the same headaches; taxi drivers who refuse or do not give passengers their exact change. Should a trip cost 80 pesos and the passenger gave a 100 peso bill, they'll just tell you that they do not have a smaller bill to give you your change and to escape the hassle, we just let them be. But should you give them an exact amount, they'll get mad at you for not giving them a tip despite the traffic and long distance travel.
But for President Rody, drivers with this kind of attitude could send them to jail.
"Yung mga taxi both dito sa Davao pati sa Maynila, alam mo pag kinuha mo pera ng tao dahil wala kang sinsilyo (coins or change) at di mo binalik, that is estafa", said Duterte.
"Kayong mga cab driver, dapat meron kayong loose change."
