In Saratov, both drivers and pedestrians were surprised by expensive Porsche Panamera with taxi roof sign. Many wondered if the driver of Porsche is joking, or his taxicab, in fact, is available. No one actually tried to hail it.
Most likely, the owner of Porsche is from Moscow. In Saratov, “they purchase a taxi license, put on taxi roof sign and then the driver can use bus lanes in Moscow without any fines.”
