Taxi driver’s in NYC are sometimes unfairly targeted for tickets. It’s not that they don’t commit their share of moving violations–it’s more that they tend to get singled out as easy targets on streets where many drivers, taxi or other, are committing the same violations.
Driving a cab in New York is not easy. Our simple advice is to avoid drawing attention to your vehicle the best that you can. Make sure your equipment is working, you use your signals, drive within the speedlimit, etc. Essentially, obey the rules of the road and keep your license in good order/standing–the same advice we’d give to anyone. There isn’t much more a driver can do.
