The war between NYC & many taxi drivers is still going strong. Initially the battle lines seemed to be seriously drawn when the two day strike took place. However this issue has gotten more serious as the two sides are now duking it out in court.
Many taxi drivers & their supporters rallied outside of The Manhattan Federal Court as a hearing was taking place inside. The hearing was setup to address a petition filed by The New York Taxi Workers Alliance and eight individual drivers. The petition is restating the points that they have clearly objected to over the last months. The main sticking point continues to be about the NYC & the Taxi & Limousine Commission’s mandate to install GPS units in all cabs.
This issue sure seems like it will drag out for a long time!
