Regarding ethnics being bad drivers, I suggest you you tube (nasty stutter I have there) videos of traffic in India (or Finland or Luxembourg) so that ou can make your own mind up about that.

Can you post screenshots of said videos?

Wow guys, way to take into account that 1: this is about the country Australia and 2: we have road rules, regulations and licenses.

Any actual scientific proof FROM AUSTRALIA?

Just because we live in a first world country doesn’t mean we get first world drivers.

No screen shot or source, just an observation while driving on our multicultural streets and tree lined avenues…

I have only had two serious crashes in over 38 years of driving, in seven different countries. Both involved ACT taxi drivers, both were their admitted fault.

Sounds like a case of tailgaiting.

On a second look there is more breakdown graphs as you scroll down.

Biggest ethnic group is Indians and they have the worst road death toll than anywhere else in the world . Average17 road deaths an hour or nearly 200,000 deaths a year.

so I would say Indians are not good drivers.

Can anyone give me a tual stats on taxi driver ethnic percentage against angelos and some hard facts about why ethnics are supposedly bad drivers or are all y’all being racists?

I know nothing whatsoever about the skills of Italian taxi drivers or “angelos” as you like to call them.

scroll down about 30mm to Executive Summary .

estimated 2 out of 3 taxi drivers are ethnics.

By law, all taxis should really have to be fitted with cameras.

Yes, on the inside, aimed at the passengers. What point are you trying to make?

Don’t they already have them on the inside at the passengers? They need them also facing out, not only for case like this but also to stop taxi drivers from being such bell ends on the road.

They come from the subcontinent and all look the same so what use will it be?

The cabbie probably just stopped for no apparent reason and got hit up the arse . Ethnic drivers do it all the time
