I dunno, personally I think the taxis are the worst. They are impatient, often rude, and on many occasions, dangerous. Last week my delivery boy was put off his bicycle into the ditch by an over zealous taxi driver trying to make a buck. The young man was also trying to earn his wage, and he shouldn't have to put up with that behaviour. He was the second person in the same day to tell me that a taxi ran them off the road, the other being a female tourist on the island who was rather upset about the incident.
On New Years Eve at 5pm, (daylight) my friend was jogging with his dog on one of the few wide and decent sections of road here and a taxi driver hit the dog at high speed throwing him 30 feet down the street. While he did not slow down or stop, he did actually swerve to avoid hitting the dying animal a second time :-(
The outcome would have been the same whether it was a dog or a or a toddler walking with a parent or an unsteady child on a bicycle.
The taxis congregate by the apartment where I live in order to get fares from the club. When the club lets out and they get their fares, they spray the entire area with gravel and rocks from their tires, hit the fences and personal golf carts parked there and peel out like feverish little demons. My neighbour has called numerous people to complain in the last month. It is one of the reasons I am moving to another apartment.
Unfortunately these are not isolated incidents. I see erratic driving from the taxis every day, passing 2, 3, and 4 carts at once with total disregard for the oncoming traffic. Trying to drive around the sleeping policemen to avoide braking. Cutting around the traffic circle the wrong way. Motoring at top speed throwing up as much dust as they can all the while blowing kisses or yelling rudely at the people they are passing because we don't look particularly pleased with them.
Personally, I like the motto on Caye Calker....."Go Slow".....
