How does taxi meter calculate?

As soon as the driver starts his meter, it records the time at which it was activated. Once the driver stops the meter, the computer calculates the time in between. The taximeter uses this metric, together with the total amount of speed pulses sent, to calculate the final fare.

Are taxi meters accurate?

One of the advantages of taxi meters is that they provide an accurate measure of what the fare should be.
