Very Sad....

I am sure that more than 85% of the accidents in oman caused by stupid taxi drivers.
And if you look good to the picture above you can see the taxi car on the right side all crashed.
I advise and recommend to be a special driving license to the taxi drivers with a three points and every time the driver caused an accident the ROP should deduct one point from the driver and if the driver lost the three points because of accidents I recommend to pull out the license from him and do not let him drive for six months.
In this case I think and I am sure that all the crazy taxi drivers will think twice before overtaking or drive speedily.
Please please please ROP do it for saving the peoples life who are dying because of one man mistake.
Why all pilots needs to study and study and do many training courses before getting a license to fly why? ?
Is about because in the air craft will be more people? ,
Or it is because of saving others lives?
What is the difference between pilot and taxi driver answer me?
Both are doing the same job which is transport people from place to another am I right guys?
So five lives are not less value then 200 lives ?
Life is life that it .
Anyway I hope someone can support my request to stop losing peoples.
God bless oman.
