Cab Driver Mayhem
Poor cabbies can't catch a break: first a cab driver was arrested for defending himself when a fare turned violent, and now the Ex reports on what may be a new robbery trend.
Of course, two incidents hardly constitutes a trend. As the Ex reports, due to security cameras, crimes against taxi drivers have "gone done." (Crimes against proofreading remain at an all-time high.)
But cab drivers may still want to keep their guard up. This weekend's robberies happened in the Bayview and the Eastern Mission (aka "The Abandoned Warehouse District"), and follow two other recent incidents in the Western Addition and Bayview.
After those previous incidents, some cabbies wanted better lines of communication with the SFPD.
