Yesterday, Mother’s Day in Thailand, marked the official day for the start of the crack down on the use of meters in taxis in Koh Samui after an order from the National Council for Peace and Order. The decision to try to cure the age old problem of taxi drivers flatly refusing to use meters samui taxi fare 1was made on the 4th of July. It was hoped that the order would be respected by local taxi drivers however, reports that the new regulations are not being adhered to are quickly circulating and the Samui Times would like to know if our Samui based readers who use local taxi services are noticing the changes or if it is business as usual for taxi drivers who charge considerably higher fares than those calculated by meters.

Hotline numbers and an email addresses have been provided for members of the public to report non compliant taxi drivers and we would like to hear from anybody who has been given cause to use 1155, 077-414-231, tac_samui@hotmail.com or samuitourism@gmail.com .
