My wife told me a very disturbing story which made me feel sick for couple of days. She knew a girl who took a cap back from university to her dorm. The taxi driver stopped the car. Locked the doors and started to masturbate… the girl freaked out and begged him to let her go. After he finished, he let her go….
The story is a bit old. And after that incident the girl wear hejab. But this is not the point. The point is how come such a sick guy like this is being lose in the streets. How come this girl did not took actions and informed the police.
I am sure that this is not the only story you will ever hear about sick taxi drivers. You will find many many stories similar to this incident. This is why there is a big need to monitor all taxi drivers in the country and punish those who do shameful things and to make them examples for others.
This is going too far, and far beyond we can imagine. The law must take a firm stand against such acts like this.
Meanwhile, I advice every girl who wants to ride a taxi to take a look at the car plate No. before she enters the cap and tries to memories the number then dial it in her mobile. Also it is wise to take a look at the taxi driver’s license and to keep his name in her mind.
I can’t ask every girl not take a cap alone. But I think it’s wise to have someone with you or if you have a little girl not to allow her to take one alone.
Until we have a better public transportation. Until we have disciplined taxi driver. Every girl and women should take a good care of herself and take precautions when taking a cap.
