Too much rounding sir

Interesting article here on how Dubai’s taxi drivers choose their passengers. Fortunately I am a preferred customer, it seems.
Obviously this whole system falls to pieces when the non-white customer being passed over actually lives in an area a taxi driver might well be happy to drive to – Mrs Saul being a good example. Equally, I have seen the odd crestfallen look when I’ve jumped in a cab and asked to go one of the less popular destinations.
It seems there are enough other customers out there that it doesn’t matter when a sweeping generalisation gets it wrong occasionally. Some they win, some they don’t!
