Taxi is not meant to be use in a race, but if we must then we could use it there besides, those taxi drivers are really on a race whenever they are driving their taxi. They are always in a hurry and would often endanger the lives of their passengers because of that. They are not a in a race, but for them, the sooner that they reached their destination, the more money they could make since they would be able to get a new passenger. They are only paid when they reached the destination and that is the only time that they can look for another passenger.
As a taxi driver, you like this way since you would make more if you are industrious enough. Such disposition in life is right and no one oppose that since nothing is affected by that. However, that could be opposed if the drivers themselves have endangered the lives of their passengers because of that way they drive. Their license would be revoke and there would be some cash penalty when that happens. Of course, no wants that to happen and the taxi driver would never endanger the lives of their passenger since that is their source of income.
In this game, the idea is to win the race. You need to drive your taxi good or you would surely loose. Watch out for those grease areas as that would slow you down. If you stepped in the booster area then you would get a boost for a few seconds. Try to stay in the road area since that is where you run best. The grassy areas are not for driving and would slow you down. Try not to hit anything since that would slow you down. The game gets harder and challenging as you make some progress.
