DC Cabs Nowhere to be Seen

Riders find it hard enough to get a cab in Adams Morgan on Friday and Saturday nights. But a recent boycott of the area by city cab drivers made it even harder. Partiers trying to get home between one and four a.m. last weekend found themselves walking quite a distance or waiting in long lines to grab a cab. Drivers are angry about a recent proposal by DC City Council member Jim Graham to establish a new system requiring drivers to pay a monthly fee in order to operate. That bill was pulled, but cab drivers still say the metered fare system instituted last year needs some modifications.

    Well.. You were up way past your bedtime to produce your excellent news piece on the taxi strike in that fancy neighborhood. But, I won’t make you write on the black board. As always, I found your writing captivating, interviews enlightening, video illuminating and the news content aborbing. Give yourself an “A” for work well done. I wish I could write well enough to tell you how proud I am of you.
