The law isn't being followed. *GASP* Say it ain't so!
Wow that franchising prices are quite high. That takes many passengers just to pay that off.
If the law was enforced those "high" franchising fees might better regulate the business. If there are too many trikes on the road an individual trike franchise will never get enough passengers to be profitable...meaning many should go out of business and make the remaining trikes more profitable. If you let people get away with not paying the franchising fees you screw the people who are following the rules....who then decide to say f*ck it and not pay the franchising fees either. Which then leads to the chaos that is happening in Dumaguete. /opinion
(I personally don't think that the franchising fee - which is only $200 - is all that high compared to the cost of building/buying a trike. It is a very cheap business startup cost IMO.)
I thinks trike drivers are making too much money, they are always turning down passengers when they dont want to take someone somewhere, today I was on one and he stopped, the student said St Paul's and the driver said no I asked him why he turned him down since I was going to Freedom Park, the driver said too far??
The address should have been: "St. Paul's, 20"
I am glad I have my own 2 or 4 wheels means of transport so no need to negotiate or asking please to these suicidal drivers (most of them but not all of course).
