Article Comments  11

The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission is proposing sweeping changes to policies regarding cell phone use by NYC cab drivers. The proposed changes include a heavier fine fir first offense, 30-day suspension on second offense and the possibility of losing their taxi license if a driver reaches three strikes within 15 months. The proposal would completely ban the use of handheld devices and cell phones -- even with handsfree kits -- while the taxis are in motion. Cell phone use would only be allowed when taxis are parked. The commission is weighing public comment on the matter and will vote on the new rules and put them into place before the end of 2009.
