TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taoyuan International Airport Corp’s chairman Tseng Dar-jen (曾大仁) pledged Sunday to address the rampant “fake taxi driver” problem outside the airport’s arrival halls, after the situation was again brought to light by social media users.
National Taiwan University professor Chang Hsueh-kung in a Facebook post accused the unlicensed taxi drivers of creating a chaotic transportation situation by holding up traffic as he left the airport himself.
Describing the chaos as “unbearable,” Chang urged the Transportation Minister Ho Chen-tan to resolve the problem. He made a direct appeal to Tseng, commenting under his post: “Darjen Tseng Chairman, where are you?”
In a response to the comment, Tseng wrote on Sunday morning that he acknowledged unlicensed taxi drivers were a “hidden danger” to the airport’s management and were also a “stain that needed cleaning up.” [FULL STORY]
