Sofia Cab Breaks New Rip-off Record.

A Sofia cab driver set a new rip-off record Wednesday by charging a customer BGN 94 for a 2-kilometer ride.

The passenger arrived in the morning at the bus station in the Sofia "Ovcha Kupel" district and took a cab to a restaurant in the "Brothers Bukston" one, not far from the State "Boyana" residency. Upon arrival, the driver asked him to pay BGN 94, of which a record BGN 64 for idle time.
