NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Taxi and Limousine Commission is planning to crack down on apple green cab imposters who are trying to cheat the system.
The green cabs hit upper Manhattan and the outer boroughs for street-hails in June, following a court battle.
But as WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported, with any new system comes some who will find a way around it.
“We’ve heard that some of the car services are starting to paint their car the same shade of green,” Taxi and Limousine Commissioner David Yassky told Silverman. “We want to make sure there’s no confusion among the public so that the new rule says unless you’re a legitimate borough taxi, you can’t paint your car that color.”
