Tamper-proof taxis

Tamper-proof meters have been installed in Doha taxis in a bid to crackdown on unscrupulous drivers. According to local media it had become common for drivers to not turn on the meter or charge incorrect fees. Visitors arriving at the airport were the most common victims, reports said. The new metres do not allow drivers to disconnect the cable, making it difficult for passengers to be fooled.
