PalmaL’Ajuntament de Palma ha obert sanctioned with 700 euros a taxi driver que va estafar un client durant un trajecte el passat mes d’agost. According to Cort informed in a press release, the events took place on August 8, when a patrol of the Local Police detected that a taxi had picked up a client on Carretera de s’Arenal, in the direction of Carrer Llaüt . El vehicle duia un indicatiu luminós que indicava Tarifa 4, fet que supupa una irregularitat. The taxi driver will charge 15 euros per una carrera very short, fet que ha implicat l’openture de l’expedient sanctionor, per una falta molt greu, amb una multa per un import de 600 euros, así com una altra de lleu, per valor of 100 euros.
