Two taxi drivers from the square of Funchal were arrested yesterday by the Public Security Police on suspicion of committing crime, and their vehicles were towed to the park of the Palace of Justice, where they are blocked with clamps.

It is recalled that in the middle of December another taxi driver was sentenced to a 6-month prison sentence, replaced by a fine of 900 euros, plus another fine of 600 euros, for having charged a couple of tourists an amount above the due cost.

It’s good to see this is being dealt with, and will make other taxi drivers aware. If you think you are being taken advantage of by taxi drivers, always make a note of the number on the door of the car, and if you can get the plate number also.
