A video posted to YouTube appears to show a Bali taxi driver at Ngurah Airport getting hot-headed as he tries to expel some Uber or Grab drivers from his ‘turf’.
“Get out of here quickly, ya!” yells the apparent taxi driver at three non-taxi drivers, right before he charges at them and challenges them to fight.
The amateur video was posted to YouTube last month, on June 29 under the account “Random” and has just been shared by local newspaper Tribun Bali.
It’s been months since we’ve heard any major developments about Uber and Grab and the attempts of Bali taxi drivers to have the ride-hailing apps banned on the island. But this video shows that while movements to ban the apps haven’t been making major headlines lately, there still is certainly tension simmering in Bali.
