Safer in a Limo...
Anyone who has ever called a taxi knows that taxis and taxi drivers come in all shapes, sizes and states of disrepair. Taxi drivers also often want to tell you their life story and about how they would fix all of the problems in the world.
However, in South Australia, taxi drivers are posing a new threat to women. Between July and August of this year, four male taxi drivers were charged with alleged indecent assault.
This new danger has forced many South Australian women to find alternative ways to get home after a big night out. It is this new fear which has prompted the executive officer of the SA Taxi Council, Peter Johns, to introduce the idea of pink cabs driven by women, for women.
A survey of local women showed that many women would use the pink taxi service as they are feeling vulnerable to male taxi drivers and would welcome the peace of mind of a female driver.
While this is one option being explored in Australia, and not all taxi drivers should be accused of assault, there are times when you don't want to have to worry about conversation with a taxi driver and questions about your personal life from a stranger.
Therefore, until there are female taxi companies across the world, girls can hire a limousine to make sure they feel safe and secure and have a chance to relax. Reputable limousine hire companies will run background checks on their chauffeurs and they will make sure they are properly trained and suited for the position of chauffeur which involves decorum, trust and service, above anything else.
Hiring a limousine is also favourable to calling a taxi as the limousines are individually cleaned after each customer so you don't have to worry about sitting on a seat hundreds of other strangers have already sat on that day.
So, while many women request a female driver when ordering a taxi, it cannot always be guaranteed so hire a limousine from a company which can guarantee that you will get a courteous and respectful driver to take you wherever you need to go in comfort.
