New cab panic buttons are game changers putting riders in touch with police | News by Samui TimesEveryone has a story about a taxi driver from hell.

Taxi companies and their governing bodies must have realized this because, as of now, approximately 2,000 — of a total 80,000 cabs operating in Bangkok — have been equipped with panic buttons in the back seats so passengers can report dastardly drivers as soon as they start acting up.
