People are becoming more and more confused following the announcement that only taxis with yellow plates are legal.
The head of the Department of Land Transport (DLT) has once again stated that only cars carrying the yellow plates are legal.
This means cars being used by services like Uber and Grab are technically illegal as they are using unregistered private cars.
Head of the DLT Sanit Phromwong said only cars which have yellow plates can be sure to have insurance, legal drivers and meters.
Sanit made the announcement yesterday after promoting the new TAXI OK and TAXI VIP apps which are designed to improve service to the general public.
There have been several reported incidences of altercations between taxi drivers and Uber drivers in recent months, hopefully the two different organisations can find a way to fairly work together in the near future to provide the public with the best service possible.
