A Czech company has come up with a novel method of protection against being overcharged by a taxi driver, an experience common to visitors to the Czech Republic. The firm Et netera has created a mobile phone application that uses a global positioning system to allow passengers to measure the distance travelled and calculate the correct fare. It is offering the system to the authorities in Prague, who have been taking measures to combat overcharging by the city’s taxi drivers for some years.
