Taxi drivers in New York will be screened for politeness

February 4 2008

Last week, several dozen inspectors Taxi and Limousine Commission (City Commission for Taxi and Limousine) started checking 13,000 New Yorks taxi drivers. Inspectors operate incognito, sitting in a taxi in the guise of ordinary passengers.

The reason for testing has led to numerous complaints on taxi drivers. Some of the most common - rude taxi drivers, talks on a cell phone while conducting vehicle traffic violations and failure to accept credit cards. Many cabbies are recently arrived in the U.S. come from other countries, so they do not always speak good English.

The trade union of taxi drivers have already showed their displeasure with the situation, although drivers who pass the test relies free meals and pay for a hotel room on vacation.

Requirement for taxi drivers is the presence of a car satellite navigation system and monitor on which the passenger can see the route.
