Taxi cab information

Except for a few companies with large fleets, most taxi cabs in Manila are owned by individuals who have less than five cars. Many actually own just one and drive it themselves. I don't know if it's required by the Land Transportation and Franchising Regulatory Board, but the name of the cab, its license plate number and the owner/operator's phone number are usually painted inside, on the door. I like it, because the first thing I do when I get in a cab (aside from telling the driver where I'm going, that is) is to text that information to my husband as a safety precaution. This is the cab I rode to work this morning. Oh, and that sticker? It says that you shouldn't pay the fare if the taxi meter seal is broken.
