Taxis, limousines and car services are a ubiquitous part of New York roads and highways. While they are critical elements of the transportation structure New York City relies on, they can also create a real risk for:
- Other motorists
Unlike a typical car, these vehicles are often on the road 24 hours a day. The vehicles may not be properly maintained. Ensuring a vehicle is mechanically sound when it is on the road that much of the time is a challenge that some businesses fail to meet.
In addition to mechanical issues, the people who operate taxis, limousines and car service vehicles may not know our traffic laws. These drivers may be unaware of our driving customs. This lack of familiarity can cause these drivers to take actions behind the wheel that other drivers find unexpected and which they may be unprepared to respond to adequately. Other issues that can impair a driver's ability to safely operate on our roads include:
- Cabbies, limo drivers and other commercial drivers may be suffering driver fatigue. Many of these drivers work these jobs as second jobs.
- A cabbie may be rushing to make a fare.
- Arguments and conflict are common among these drivers. Aggressive and unsafe driving may be the result.
