A Penalty Against Cab Drivers I’d Support

02.25.11 Bucky Turco

The TLC often treats taxi drivers like shit and so I have a hard time supporting lots of the oppressive new rules or requirements they impose, but when it comes to fining cabbies who refuse fares to Brooklyn, the Bronx, or anywhere else outside Manhattan, fuck ’em. It happens way too often and now they even get mad if you don’t say where you’re going until inside the cab. It’s no wonder many of us still have to say East Williamsburg when we really mean Bushwick. (Photo: The Tailor)
