A 42-year-old driver was shot three times last night while working in Brooklyn, marking the third assault on a livery cab driver this month. A spokesman for the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, perhaps insensitively, is using the attacks as a warning: "Picking up street hails in the outer boroughs is not legal and will never be a good idea."
