Insecurity is a very popular topic throughout the country, mainly in public transport. Take into account the following recommendations before embarking on a taxi. Taking a taxi is too practical when we need to reach our destination urgently and perhaps, comfortably. With comfort, I refer to those times that we bring heels, skirts or dresses, and even if we carry many things. I dare to say that many women make serious mistakes when it comes to choosing and boarding a taxi. But I consider it important to take into account the following points to save and give more value to your life. Avoid terrifying situations! 1.- Site, radio taxi or Uber taxi The fact that you choose to take a car from these does not mean that they are one hundred percent safe. It is essential that you compare the information on the car with the one previously provided. If you notice something suspicious, don't hesitate to report it. 2.- Choose well, be patient Has it happened to you that you are quietly waiting for the transport and spend several taxis very close to you touching your horn to make them stop? Well, for your safety avoid getting into cars that do this, you better choose taxis that run normally and quietly.security-measures-taxi-boarding photo: Huffpost 3.- Beacons Taxis Do not lose sight of the paint and especially the decals. Just by looking at the beaconed taxi, you can identify which is a pirate and which is not.

If the car you intend to climb lacks plates in the beacon, pays too much attention to those that come in the aluminum, these should match those of the card. A taxi that really follows the letter of security measures, will have the card stuck in one of the windows so that you, as a passenger, do not fear and know who accompanies you. If you don't have it located there, you can look inside; It should always be in sight, otherwise, you have every right to withdraw. Obviously also check that the photo of the person who appears on the traffic card and the driver are the same person.security-measures-taxi-plates photo: Capital21 5.- No polarized glass To me, cars with tinted windows don't give me confidence. If you take a taxi with the completely opposite glass it will be a great relief; The rest of the people will be able to realize what is happening inside the taxi and you will be able to see clearly why they are taking you.security-measures-taxi-polarized photon: FreePeople 6.- It always takes change There have been cases where passengers do not bring change and taxi drivers or them to a bank or ATM to intercept them. Do not panic! Avoid this by always loading change, or you can ask the taxi driver if he brings. Also, it is important that you verify that the car has a meter and that it is not altered.-measures-security-taxi-taximeterPhoto: Metropolitan 7.- Be aware of the fate We are in the era of technology, which means that we can already get an idea of how to reach our destination thanks to certain applications or functions of our cell phone. Please try to have even a minimal knowledge of the route and the place where you are going.security-measures-taxi-photo: Pinterest 8.- Take it along the most feasible way And if fortunately, you know perfectly which way to go, go ahead, you guide it. The idea is that you feel comfortable and safe in the taxi. What better than walking on a route you know.security-measures-taxi-route photo: Febbo Stansted Airport Transfers 9.- Don't get distracted! When you get into a taxi, stay away from technology and pay attention to what is happening. Never be distracted, that attracts a lot of attention; they can take advantage. Always look straight ahead and identify the driver very well.safety-measures-taxi-base-of-distraction-taxi photo: FreeJPG 10.- Be careful with the talks There are taxi drivers who usually start a talk with a topic too insignificant and not bad, I see nothing wrong to start a dialogue. Just take good care of what you say; Do not give personal information.
