Bangkok cabbie finds perfect way of protecting himself


A cabbie from the Trumq Taxi company in Bangkok has found a new way of protecting himself – partitioning off the driver’s area with clear plastic.

Passengers have the option of dropping their fare in a bag on the front passenger’s seat or paying online by scanning the provided QR code.

The driver has also provided hand-sanitising gel and drinking water for passengers.

Cabbie Nakarin Changsongsin, 54, said he got this idea from the negative/positive pressure rooms in hospitals, adding that he had installed the partition when Covid-19 arrived in Thailand last year.
