New York’s Most Crooked Cabby: The TLC Is ‘Like Pontius Pilate’


It’s basically the TLC’s way of not accepting any of the blame for what was happening,” said Santiago Rossi, who took advantage of 5,217 passengers by charging them higher out-of-town fares while driving in Manhattan. He blames the TLC for making a meter with the flaw he exploited for his own illegal gain. “They’re going to blame the cab drivers and then wash their hands like Pontius Pilate.” Through his scheme, Rossi made $11,066.45.
