Lamborghini taxi is a fake. In Istanbul all taxi cars must have a spesific licence plate and they must be in black figures on white plate matching following format 34 (city code) then letter "T" (stands for taxi) then 2 letters then 2 numbers for example "34 TAB 01". Also all plates must have a blue bar containing "TR" before licence plate number. The plate in the picture is not even a Turkish plate. It is California licence plate.

Seems like stray animals are quite a big problem, why doesn't the city fix this?
