Arrogant taxi driver fined P6,000

For ordering his passengers to disembark amid heavy traffic, a taxi driver was initially fined P18,000.

The fine stemmed from the complaint of Wella Mae Olmedo, whose Facebook post about her ordeal also led to the suspension of taxi driver Bebiano Dapal Jr.

Olmedo said Dapal asked her for P2,000 after her baby vomited in his taxi. During the hearing in the Land Transportation and Regulatory Board office, Dapal cried after hearing the verdict. This prompted Olmedo to forgive him and spurred the hearing officer to reduce the fine to P6,000.
