Taxi Drivers Information
December 23rd, 2014

Taxi and limousine services make it easy for customers to get around when driving their own cars or using public transportation is inconvenient. Taxi drivers and chauffeurs take passengers to and from their homes, workplaces, and recreational pursuits, such as dining, entertainment, and shopping, and to and from business-related events. These professional drivers help both residents and out-of-town guests get around a city or urban area. In addition to regular point-to-point services, some drivers offer sight-seeing services around their cities.

Regardless if it was your fault or not, talk to the interviewer about the accident, what caused it, and the measures you take to avoid another incident like that. To end it on a positive note, tell the interviewer that the accident has made you a more careful, attentive, and responsible driver.
