Yer man has Expurt stickers on his taxi too.How can he be smart enough to drive a Prius but dumb enough to think he could get away with such a obvious fiddle?Hard to feel any sympathy for him.

Not even a smart fiddle.....were the extras not glaringly obvious?

Anymore prosecutions pending?

Damage done over the yrs by Paddy the Chancer has served the social engineering policy-makers well. Surprised Zappone and Coppinger aren't out calling for more LGBTQ and "migrants" to enter the game over the head of it.

Yes I just got a glimpse of the story now. Apperently he done 280 times where he overcharged adding 9 euro to the fare by some remote control gaget he had. This resulted in 206 meters being recalled

All meters would have been tested and checked when they were resealed. They don’t even bring you out for a test drive. It would be hard to see if each driver did add extras, unless they were in a Saloon taxi and had €9 in extras on every job

It wasn't even an elaborate scam....he was simply adding extras using a remote control that can be bought with the meter...whether the installer let him know this was possible or he googled it himself,
I've never checked my own meter to see how many extras can be added....as a saloon car it should be only be €5....me thinks?

Yes Hal correct €5 would/should be the most

PUC €2, 1st Pax FOC, Next 3 Pax €3 , €5 extras on the meter.

I don't think you are allowed/supposed to put the toll charge on the meter !

Toll charges shouldn't be added to the meter,added manually to the receipt.
