Pattaya taxis still at war with Uber drivers

THE ‘war’ between Pattaya City taxis and Uber drivers is unlikely to end soon, as the local drivers are fiercely protecting their turf, reported today (June 8).

In a video clip widely shared online, a Pattaya taxi driver engages in a war of words with an Uber driver, whom he accuses of illegally working in the resort city.

After a heated exchange, the Uber driver took off his shirt and challenged the Pattaya taxi driver to fight with him. A traffic policeman quickly separated the two men, who eventually went their separate ways.
