While listening to the news today on the Q102, less talk, more music station at 5 pm. It was great to hear that tweets by streetdogs.blog the word on the street concerning a picture in the Irish Independent, had an impact on the Taxi Drivers spokesperson, When they (said taxi drivers) were protesting outside the offices of the Taxi app company Free/Now Taxi, today. In that, in respect of the said picture of the driver’s previous demonstration placards remonstrating about a 3% increase in the commission charged against the drivers as mentioned above, following on tweets by streetdogs the word on the street in respect of this photo and the stated 3% increase. streedogs.blog the word on the street, via its Twitter account (Yes folks we do have one), pointed out to the drivers that a rise from 12% to 15% is not a 3% rise but a rise of 25% on the original charge of 12% commission charged to the drivers by Free/Now Taxis. It was great to hear today the said taxi driver’s spokesperson correcting the given impression of a 3% rise and stating that it is, in fact, a 25% rise in the commission charge. Now compare this to a proposed increase in taxi fares due this year of 4.5%, seems Free/Now Taxis are a bit like politicians, things are given with one hand, and someone takes them and more back with another hand!
