Cab drivers say they're not being heard
Taxicab drivers say a Wednesday hearing on fares proves once again that their voices are not being heard. The taxicab commission is holding the hearing in a small room at a government building on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard SE. So some taxi drivers and a reporter are stuck in a hallway, The Post's Nikita Stewart reports on the DC Wire blog.
"There are 6,000 taxi drivers in the District. There are 38 seats," said Leroy Armes, 20-year veteran behind the wheel. "What does that tell you?"
