I spent a lot of year in the New York City area, so I can tell you that all the stories you hear about New York City cabbies are true. Most speak English as well as I speak Tagalog, none understand the concept of personal hygiene and all of them drive with the intensity of a Formula One pilot. I’ve personally experienced cabs getting airborne, and have had cabbies throw a brush back to other cars at 60 miles per hour on a residential street. Somehow, I managed to survive all my trips at the hands of NYC cabbies, but I would have felt a lot safer in a rollcage equipped, WRC-prepped Mitsubishi Evolution. In fact, I’m thinking that there’s a viable business model here; you could charge a bit more, especially if you guaranteed the lowest elapsed time to a passenger’s destination.
