City Taxi Drivers Subject To New Dress Code

Drivers Told To Wear "Professional Attire"

NEW YORK (CBS 2/WCBS 880/1010 WINS) — If you come across a shabby cabbie, that driver could soon be facing a fine for his or her fashion faux pas. The Taxi and Limousine Commission wants drivers to present a “professional appearance.”

The current dress code bans tube tops, tank tops and bathing trunks. The revised code doesn’t get too specific.

A driver advocacy group wonders exactly what constitutes “professional attire,” as TLC Commissioner David Yassky admits the dress code is difficult to enforce as it is now.
