    Default taxis

    A bit of trivia here,but are there any Renault taxis on the road in OZ.
    Reason is,on this day in 1909,the first motor powered taxicabs,six Renault 8hp cabs were put into service in Sydney to replace the horse drawn hansom cabs.

    Sadly, not in Oz, but I doubt Paris traffic would lend the potential to be realized

    Are there any taxi's on the road in Aus that aren't Hybrids?
    Real taxi's that is, not Uber and not 'Silver Service' or Limmos.
    That would probably answer your question.

    There's a Renault (Laguna I think) taxi down here in the Victor Harbor/Goolwa area south of Adelaide. The owner must have a thing for Froggies as it replaced a Citroen C4.

    Are there any taxis in Australia with two working headlights and their fog lamps off?

    Not for some time. They used to get fined if they drove damaged or dirty taxis, but since enlightenment, that doesn't happen anymore.
