The Maynooth Taxis facebook page has posted a video of a group of concerned Dublin taxi drivers who setup a sting to catch a Brazilian man illegally working as a taxi driver, without a license.
Taxi drivers hitting back at uninsured, illegal, unlicensed drivers doing transfers. This driver showed up for pre booked transfer to the airport from Dame Street booked through facebook.
He knew what he was doing was totally wrong and we wonder how long has he been doing it for? How many others are doing it? Where are the taxi regulators? What are they doing?
The favourite method for Brazilians’ to sneak into Ireland is to pretend to want to study English in what can be described as English school visa farms. This gives them permission to work 20 hours a week but it is unknown how many work longer hours illegally. After five years, they are entitled to apply for Irish citizenship which many do.
