Forget about cabbie dress codes, let's talk about cabbie fines! The News reports that beyond worrying about the clothes on your hack's back, the TLC is now getting ready to raise the fines it levies on drivers who don't follow the rules. The problem is that although the TLC has many a rule governing driver behavior (they can't talk on cellphones, must display their license, etc.) the fines associated with breaking them, most falling between $25 and $350, are too low to be reasonable deterrents. Especially since most drivers never seem to get busted for them in the first place. The proposal for the new fines isn't done yet, but should go before public review in the coming months. We can't wait.
