The cabbie went off his head when I asked him why he charged me more than the other one yesterday. He opened his wallet and showed me all these notes and said "Do I need your money" Then he old me he was going to call the police and get them to come and check the meter, I didn't have anything going on at the time and found the situation quite amusing that he threatened to call the police so I agreed to wait for them to arrive. They didn't arrive of course so I passed him what I had paid the day before. If they're taking the same route the price should be the same every time that's if they are all charging the same Km.

If this is true, the 90 CLP / 200m are contributing more to the ICAP/smog than the 120 ones. Would that guilt anyone into picking the 120 CLP over the 90 CLP taxis if they could choose?
