I had a case where I took a metered taxi in Bangkok with another passenger: when we stopped at the other passenger's destination to drop them, the taxi driver didn't understand that I would stay in the taxi and go somewhere else. Instead, the taxi driver said he had stopped the meter and that he couldn't resume it (i.e. that instead of resuming the trip, we'd have to start from scratch, i.e. with the 35 THB base fare preloaded or agree on a fixed fare).
The meter was looking as follows when the taxi driver said he had stopped it:
This led me to wonder the following question: If a taxi driver in Thailand stops the meter (the amount is still visible on the meter screen as shown on the picture above. I.e. the meter screen wasn't turned off), can they resume it?
