Rigged up behind the steering wheel drivers press it to increase the mileage and fees.
After being confronted by a reporter this driver admitted his fraudulent behavior.

But, with a child like logic, he pleaded that he only did it ‘sometimes to add about 20 baht – here and there.’

A policeman explained the crime, but it is unclear if the driver will be charged with any offence. Or if the police intend to check ALL taxi meters.
