An individual wrote, "The passenger seemed to be nervous seeing the rowdy behaviour of the taxi driver. There is no point in talking so soberly and sweetly with him instead of taking alternative measures. That driver should be banned by all cab aggregators immediately."

A second shared, "I find a driver to be arrogant in this case! He is not responding to the question, and I don't find an issue with the passenger as he is not asking the driver to speak in Hindi or any language. He is trying to be cooperative, but why is the driver behaving in this way?"

"This is very common in Bangalore. These cab drivers do not switch on the AC. I have experienced this myself. In fact, if you have a corporate booking they will cancel the booking as they want payment in cash," posted a third.
