Be Not Afraid

Stickers with the slogan, No Fear, are still popular among some Bangkok taxi drivers. Could this be the mantra of these cabbies? After all, it must take a certain amount of courage to drive a taxi in this city. Some of the other motorists on the road are insane and one can only imagine what it must be like to deal with some of the passengers. Another theory behind these stickers is that these cabbies want to communicate to their customers to have confidence in them and their driving skills. Either that, or the cabbies simply have an appreciation for this corny style left over from the 1990s.
