Taking You to Brooklyn Now Makes Economic Sense for Cab Drivers

Mayor Bloomberg signed into law yesterday a bill increasing fines against taxi drivers for refusing to take passengers to a destination within the city limits — $500 for a first offense, $1,000 for a second offense, $1,000 and a loss of license after a third offense. "Some taxi drivers argue that making trips out of Manhattan doesn't make economic sense," he said. "After this bill is enacted, that claim will not pass muster." Sassy. [NY1]
