Taxi Please

Posted on Mon, Oct 17, 2011 at 1:04 PM

So I was sitting with a friend outside the Public Gardens on Saturday chatting and having a coffee. After all it was a wonderful day. The intersection in front of us SGR and South Park. There are crosswalks and traffic lights. But both seem to be invisible to taxis. We witnessed taxis speeding through the intersection, taxis failing to yield to pedestrians who had the right of way, taxis running red lights, cutting off a cyclist, and taxis that were illegally parked. All this in just a 20 minute span. Are taxis in HRM exempt from the rules of the road? or do they just not give a damn because they are unionized? —Where To?
