Christmas time means DWI time

Don't get caught drinking and driving in Frederick Maryland this year.



Too many people take taxi cabs because they lost their license by getting a DWI.
Just call a Cab!

Which do you want to be out of? $20 for a cab ride or $200 for Driving School, Few hundred more for SR22 insurance... or worse

You don't want to end up riding in Maryland's Trooper Eight:



From an official State of Maryland website:

Drunk Driving Costs Too Much:
  • A first-time DUI or DWI conviction costs $4,000 to $6,000, in attorney fees, towing, bonding, court costs, sentencing fees, and insurance increases.

  • On job applications, you must say "YES" you have been convicted of a crime.

  • Most insurance companies will cancel you, and high-risk companies greatly increase premiums.

  • A DUI or DWI arrest costs you legally, profes sionally and economically – and it cost you or someone else their life.

    NY cab driver retires rich

    Green Cabs or Yellow Cabs?



    The mayor of NY City, Michael Bloomberg, announced a 20% increase in hybrid taxis EVERY YEAR in that city in less than 5 years.

    The current standard taxi, the Crown Victoria, gets about 14 mpg in the city. It'll be replaced by a wide variety of new taxis, from the smaller Prius, to the Ford Escape hybrid SUV. 13,000 Taxis is a lot to replace, but apparently a 20% per year churn is about what taxi companies deal with in New York, so, basically, every new cab they buy will have to be a hybrid.

    Looks like those yellow cabs might have to have a splash of green after all.

    Cab Driver Retires RICH?


    Forget the stock market. If you're in the possession of a NYC taxi medallion, you're sitting on a goldmine. A retiring Pakistani driver who'd been driving a cab in New York for the last 25 years sold his medallion Wednesday for a staggering $600,000 -- an all-time record for such a sale.
    The medallion, which gives cab drivers the right to operate legally in the city, cost $30,000 when it was purchased in 1981. The new owner is a taxi fleet operator who already owns somewhere around 100 medallions.

    Prices have been steadily rising in recent years, and at the last city-held auction, medallions fetched upwards of $500K. Experts feel that the city could bring values down to a more realistic level -- around $300,000 -- if they added 5000 new ones to the pool. Until that happens (if it happens at all), expect to see more astronomical sale values as medallions change hands. There's a limited number of the things out there, and right now, the demand appears to be off the charts.

    At this rate, it's probably just a matter of time before we see a reality show about this. Flip This Medallion, anyone?

    Cab Strike in China


    Police detained 21 people for smashing taxicabs during the latest taxi strike to hit China as more drivers took to the streets Tuesday to protest high costs and competition from illegal cabs.

    The 21 detained in Sanya, a popular holiday destination on the southern island province of Hainan, were suspected of vandalizing taxis after the drivers refused to participate in the strike that began Monday, said a man from the city's Communist Party branch who would only give his surname, Li.

    Li said many cab drivers assembled in front of the municipal government office in Sanya for a second day Tuesday, but he did not give a crowd estimate. The official Xinhua News Agency put the gathering at more than 300.

    "Right now, you can't see a single taxi on the roads. This causes great inconvenience to the residents and affects the city as a whole," Li said in a telephone interview. "The government is trying to solve this as soon as possible."

    It was not immediately clear how many taxis were participating in the strike, but Xinhua said there are about 1,200 licensed cabs in Sanya.

    Economy tanking means more cab drivers

    When economic times are good, Local Frederick Cab companies tend to have a hard time landing conscientious workers.

    This applies not only to cab drivers, but effective customer service reps.

    Now we're in an economic downturn...

    Better qualified employees are available!

    When times are good... unfortunately for the taxi industry, most of the people willing to drive cabs (unless they truly enjoy driving, like me for example) are from the 'bottom end of the gene pool'.

    Now, with many people finding themselves with too much month at the end of their paychecks... a part time job is looking like a pretty good idea!

    OK, so you're looking for a part time job?

    How many of those are flexible with your schedule?


    How many part time jobs let you get paid at the end of each and every shift you work?

    See where I'm going with this?

    If, in the past, a Montgomery county cab driver or Frederick county cab driver was:




  • Rude to you





  • Short with you





  • Was a 'smart a**'





  • Your experience of them was, shall we say, somewhat Less than Cheerful Customer Service




  • The Economic downturn could just brighten at least a small part of your day!

    Who wants to deal with a moron when you're trying to get to BWI Airport from Frederick Maryland?

    Man accused of repeatedly calling 911 for cab

    From the Associated Press
    May 27, 2008

    WACO, Texas -- A man accused of calling 911 15 times in a row because he was tired of waiting for a cab was arrested early Tuesday, police said.

    Each time Kevin Lewis Waits called, the emergency dispatcher told the man he had to call a taxi service and that police could not help him, said Waco police officer Steve Anderson.

    Police eventually went to the apartment complex and found a cab waiting for Waits, who was also there but did not have the $26 taxi fee, Anderson said. Waits, 25, was trying to get to a house in town, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported in its Tuesday online edition.

    Waits, of nearby Hillsboro, was arrested after being taken to the hospital because he told an officer that he had used methamphetamine, Anderson said. Waits remained in custody Tuesday afternoon awaiting bond on charges of harassment and theft of service, according to the McLennan County Jail.

    Going to the airport? Drive vs Taxicab

    Ok, so you're going on a flight... You're near Frederick and the Airport is just south of Baltimore...

    How do you get there?

    You can drive your car, but then you'd have to pay for parking, not to mention you'd have to find some way (shuttle bus?) to get from the parking lot to the airport.

    You'd also have to pay for the gasoline to get there...

    Why not just take a taxicab?
