Always keep the GPS 'On' in your mobiles or in the cab, if any, till you reach your destination. This is the best way you can be sure of the fact that the cab is taking you to your destination and not a secluded spot.
This is especially important if you take taxis during the night time. This is when taxi drivers often change routes to get to the destination quickly or if they have some evil intentions.
