The NYPD, Policing the Streets

Pedicab ticket

A police officer pulled over a pedicab driver, the other day, for reasons unknown.

The NYPD have been cracking down on activities. I jumped in a gypsy cab a few weeks ago and we were hailed down by the police within one block.

How come? The gypsy cab driver had asked me for a destination and quoted a fare, then started driving. But he hadn't called the ride into the office. The driver was working for pure profit, without the cab company's knowledge.

Only "yellow" cabs are allowed to be hailed in NYC and yellow cabs are not allowed to respond to a phone call for a fare.
