Re: Be careful in a Toronto Taxi

Follow up story.

They are going to increase the checks to every two years. Better than nothing.

I cannot deny anything I did not say.

I am not a cab driver, in fact, most of them drive me nuts with how they drive, and how they park, but I mean, this article is a little more than hyperbole. How many taxi drivers are there? How many serious assaults etc against the customer have their been? How many people take a trip every day, event free in a taxi?

Not defending the bad drivers, but, just using a little perspective here. The industry as a whole needs to change. The drivers are forced to rent the car, pay for the gas, pay for their fee's related to the job, and must pay this everyday, busy or not. Until we change how the system operates, drivers will continue to drive like mad, chase fares down, fight back against fare jumpers, fight with each other for fares.

Private companies don't have to obey laws?

The law doesn't say you can't hire based on criminal history, so what "law" are you referring to?

The law is very specific as to record of offences and I doubt a consideration.
