Good News to Dubai Taxi Passengers

I feel great upon  knowing that the government of Dubai has intensified its campaign against "smelly" taxis after receiving numerous complaints from various passengers.

To eliminate the pong of body odor and food smells, it handed over 3,500 air fresheners to drivers. Well, this sounds good, but I don't think this will completely solve the problem.

The fragrance of air freshener expires after a couple of minutes. Everyone knows that. And some people don't like the smell of  it. Why don't the government serve the most effective solution?

How?


  1. Educate the drivers. Teach them the basic personal hygiene. Require them to take a bath daily, change their clothes (uniform) everyday, apply body deodorant, brush their teeth every after meal. 
  2. Penalize them for smoking inside. Some drivers don't care whether their passengers die of suffocation.
  3. Teach them to clean/wash their car everyday. They must be responsible. 

If the government could not implement this solution it has to start finding ways to serve the passengers at its best. Why don't it begin operating automatic taxis?

ipagbawal sa mga driver ang pagkain ng shawarma.. haha

talaga? naninigarilyo ang mga driver dyan sa dubai? anong klase kaya yun? balak nga talaga nilang patayin ang mga pasahero nila

RUEL said...

@kheed,
tama ka bro..walang kwenta ang mga taxi driver dito..pero hindi naman sila kumakain ng shawarma sa loob..

Yellow Bells said...

well its not the perfect solution and not even the permanent one.

They really need to first teach them what do you mean by "personal hygiene" then from there they'll start understanding. Education and knowledge is the key. sana lng taxi operators would initiate seminars to dessiminate info to their drivers

This is a good campaign towards personal hygiene ng mga taxi drivers in Middle East. Dito sa Doha, there is only one taxi company that operates in Doha, and the drivers are in clean uniforms at malinis talaga sila kasi mahigpit masyado ang management ng Mowasalat (taxi company) marami ring silang Pinoy drivers ng taxi at buses dito.

Sardonyx said...

bakit ganun lang ang solution nila? kakatuwa naman air fresheners, tama ka dapat proactive at hindi reactive ang solution. Ayusin ang pinanggagalingan ng baho hehehe, ganyan pala dyan mababantot ang mga taxi??? di nga siguro sila naliligo hehehe
