Authorities kicked off their campaign to get tough on unruly taxi drivers Wednesday, including those who refuse to use meters and turn away passengers. 

Col Wirat Wongchan, deputy commander of the 11th Military Circle, said the military unit, the Land Transport Department (LTD), the Royal Thai Police, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and other agencies concerned are working together to inspect taxi services in a bid to boost convenience and safety for passengers.
