Sean about Karwa | Taxi Doha  Sean   --   Doha (Qatar)

Maybe 3 or 4 times out of 5 a 'flagged down' Karwa car driver tries to pull some stunt over the fare. Normally I just demand the meter be switched on, if that fails I just invoke the 'no meter running journey is for free' rule (in writing on the tariff label in the rear windows). The other night however, some clown of a driver called me out, and threatened to take me to the police, so invited him to do just that, and by the way "I'll want to see you taxi driver ID card", he didn't have one. Now he wasn't so keen to go to the police. With me threatening to speak to his office, he admitted that he was one of 11 drivers sub-letting the car, and he was in fact illegal. Question to KARWA - you allow this to happen, what if I get into a Karwa taxi, in good faith that it is a legal operator, what happens if there is an RTA, and my driver turns out to be illegal, what happens if I get injured, who pays? What happens if the third party gets injured/ killed, who pays? I would hazard a guess that Karwa staff are perfectly aware of this activity, no doubt somebody is trousering a nice commission from this? Passengers take note, the guys trying to rip you off, without the meter, are probably illegal drivers?
