New York cabbies on Monday night were demanding an express lane at local gas stations, as they complained of waiting up to 6 hours a day to refuel.
The city is considering a controversial plan to spend $2 million to train cabbies to be the eyes and ears of the police department in spotting sex traffickers.
Officials said the test was conducted this month, a year after overbilling allegations led to criminal charges against dozens of cabbies.
Dozens of New York City taxi drivers have been arrested on charges of quietly doubling the rates that thousands of passengers should have paid. In all, some $235,000 was overcharged.
