Every now and then, we get to hear news on the fake taxis and vehicles that are being operated illegally.

Some undercover reporters decided to carry out a 4 day trial period in over 20 Uber and Ola rides where they had been recording conversation via a spy camera. There aim was to have the drivers reveal the insider secrets and details. Where one thing that they come across was that there were multiple unregistered drivers and only one registered cab. You may have often noticed while booking these cabs that the driver whose picture you see on the app isn’t always the one who is driving you to your destination. Have you ever thought why? It’s only due to the fact that this person never really did register himself to drive that cab and could possibly be using a fake drivers license. Due to this reason, he would even be untraceable after committing crime.
