We've all experienced this: You get on a Karwa taxi and the driver offers you a fixed price when he can just turn on the meter and hand you a receipt the moment you reach your destination -- which is the right thing to do! Some of us will agree to his price but a smarter commuter would say: "Hey, your meter's there for a reason. Better turn it on, bro!" This is just one of the many public transportation scenarios that you may encounter in the streets of Qatar. For a more in-depth tutorial on the do's and dont's, let Mr. Q do the rest of the talking! Hit us up in the comment section below if we miss something worth-sharing regarding this #QTip!
