drivers aren't violating rules against refusing credit cards, talking on cell phones and general rudeness. Violators may face fines, and repeat offenses could lead to license suspensions.Gee, I hope they asked to be taken to Roosevelt Island and see the response by taxi cab drivers not wanting to go to Roosevelt Island. Among the bogus excuses are:
- I'm off duty when we know the cab light is on and we can see them pick up a passenger on the next block,
- I don't go to Queens,
- I don't know how to get there and
- the cab suddenly getting engine trouble near the 59th street bridge and has to go out of service
Roosevelt Island 360 takes you on a Roosevelt Island Red bus ride here.
