    The attempts at defending the generally shockingly bad HK taxi drivers is, er, entertaining (but not as funny as the subsequent p*ss-takes). I have on very rare occasions had Tokyo taxi-quality HK taxi journeys and thanked the driver profusely as any ignorant gweilo can (and tipped generously). But that’s about a handful of taxi journeys in 21 years in HK....

    Or may be you are right and they just want to get passengers sick.
    Well I really hope the majority of HK taxi drivers don’t have nerve or mental issues.

    It is definitely nothing to do with the car either as I have taken Ubers in HK where some idiots drive the exact same way.

    Actually... We'd probably complain about how expensive taxis were, and how we're forced onto suicidally driven buses as a result
    Nothing wrong with the (big) buses! I will defend them till my last breath. I much prefer getting to my destination quickly than the Singaporean model of spacing them out and making them drive at 20km/h in order to do so!
