Top five cities for taxi drivers (and the bottom end, too)
In a study of world's taxi drivers, hotels.com found that London's are tops. But, you get what you pay for: London's taxis were also the most expensive. New York came in second, with 27 percent of the vote (compared to London's overwhelming 59 percent). New York's drivers ticked up 10 percentage points, but this still wasn't enough to break the tie it scored with Paris for having the rudest cabbies. Rome picked up the dubious distinction of having the worst drivers.
Tokyo (26 percent), Berlin (17 percent) and Bangkok (14 percent) round out the world's top five.
Madrid took sixth, followed by Copenhagen, Dublin, Frankfurt and Paris. So, Denmark may be happier, but Spain has better cab drivers.
Of course, there's always one you should look out for ...
