Topic - How to get paid by a fare dodger?

Beardyman - on 06 Feb 2013
Hi there, I drive taxis and occasionally don't get paid. Without taking the law into my own hands, how does one get the money off a fare dodger?

If the police are involved they will press charges but if the culprit does not pay the fine then I never receive the money. I was told by a solicitor that what happens is they then get caught for another offence and end up spending a few days inside, legally the culprit has now been punished, job done..... except I didn't get paid!

How can I avoid this? Demanding money up front is not a route I want to go down.

Getting into a taxi without means to pay is an offence, the amounts are small but it really sticks in my throat giving some wee chav a free ride home!
