Mine is chip and pin (not chip and signature), but there was no
discussion of any of that -- I walked up the the taxi and said "Do you
take credit cards" - he replied in the affirmative and off we went.
There was no  discussion of chip / not / etc.

http://www.aaataxi.cz/en/ says: "Pay by credit card"

YMMV, etc

I don't think the execution is relevant when it was obviously a bad
idea in the first place.
This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing
regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair
of pants.
