Where is the safety of any passenger who is going to travel in his car when he carry a baseball bat for no reasons. How sure is that he will not attack the passenger if there is any misunderstanding. Carrying any thing that could pose a danger to the passenger itself is illegal in public vehicles or vehicles that server the public for a fare. It is really interesting to note that only after committing a crime many people will think about visiting relatives or parents or going for prayers in the temple, a common excuse that always surface in the news story....

I’m afraid it’s almost standard issue. Failing that, a 12 inch blade or even a gun is standard issue.
 

I was driving in Phuket once and a taxi driver was almost in the boot (trunk!) of my car. I dabbed the breaks lightly to let him know he was too close for safety. Naturally he took this as a declaration of war. He eventually cut up the inside of me and brandished a long blade out of the window. He didn’t know I was a foreigner and so was happy to kill anyone, Thai or foreigner.

The taxi driver has an attitude problem. He shouldn't be allowed to taxi anyone any longer. He's definitely road stressed.

I have a long scar on the back of my head (11 stitches) result of an argument with a taxi driver who refused to take me home because the traffic was so heavy?! I refused to pay and we got in an argument which turned up another taxi driver which turned up a third it was him who slashed mr with a knife as I turned away but it could have been a machete I didn’t see the weapon he was a hero to the other two taxi drivers !?!!?!
