Does anyone realize the percentage of taxi drivers who are convicted felons? Many of these felonies are of a violent nature or have the potential to become violent by the nature of the crime. For example: possesion of drugs with intent to sale and grand theft auto have the potential to become violent. Are these the type of people ypu want knowing where you live or driving you around when your really intoxicated?

Do the research. Look up the names of taxi drivers in the Tallahasse Police Department and Leon County public records on current charges and past criminal convictions as well as most recent arrests. Learn for yourselves the ugly truth that the little background investigation does not weed these dangerous people out. Be Safe Not Sorry!

Some of the stories I have heard from people I have picked up are enough to convince anyone that bad taxi drivers are turning patrons (customers) into victims of sexual harrassment, sexual assult, and overcharging to name but a few.
When I first started driving in 2008 I believed that only the taxi drivers were in danger. Talking about nieve? That WAS me and it is you too if you believe it can't or won't happen to you.
So spread the truth about your taxi nightmare ride, it just might save the next person from becoming another victim
