Quite unbelievable that this Phuket taxi extortion racket has been ongoing now for years.....and the so called authorities simply back it endlessly.

Where is the government...where is that useless enterprise, TAT...nothing is ever said!

TAT are busy counting everyone who passes thru an immigration post as a tourist !!!  "But I only went to Malaysia on a visa run .."

Well, we can all guess why, can't we. Whenever anyone I know tells me they are planning a trip to Thailand I've long told them to avoid Phuket like the plague.

Surely if they are ripping off passengers and only allowing "certain" taxis into certain locations,(or else) they are behaving as the mafia does, are they not 'lowlifes'?

I am thankful I/we in our house are free of needing to deal with these lower than a snakes duodenum chaps anymore.

"The application she used can only be serviced in certain areas of Phuket but not for Kamala and not this particular venue." Which app is this? ? Can you use Grab Taxi app in Phuket?

It would make one hell of a "Reality" TV show. 

Better than those fabricated divas in the dramas.

maybe my words were harsh but you gotta admit these guys are always fighting,  as they're mafia controlled in many places.  It's a pitty they couldn't just be like normal taxi drivers and act accordingly, be clean, polite, honest ....   that means accepting passengers regardless of the journey. 

As you say...they're controlled by local "mafia" figures. Most of the taxi drivers I've taken have been courteous and polite...they have nothing to with the fixed-prices of the taxis and certainly don't make any money off it. If the government ever removed the mafia middlemen (😆😆😆) the drivers lives would be much better and some sort of fair tariff structure could be put in place.
