Exorbitant Taxi Fee Penalized in Istanbul!

The taxi driver who carried a tourist couple in Istanbul and the taxi driver who demanded a fee of 385 TL for one kilometer road was fined.

The greed of the taxi driver, who demanded exorbitant prices from the Argentine tourist couple in Istanbul, exploded.

The Argentine couple took a taxi from Dolmabahçe to Taksim. The driver of the taxi they got on demanded 385 liras from the couple for a few minutes’ distance. A discussion broke out after the vigilant driver demanded about 10 times more wages.


When they came to Taksim, the couple, who saw the tourism police in the square, complained about the driver. The police, who examined the documents of the taxi driver Murat Akpolat, searched the taxi.


Murak Akpolat, who was fined about 5 thousand liras, was also seized for 20 days. The taxi was taken to the parking lot with a tow truck.
