Alexandria seeks more 'polite' cab drivers

By Washington Post editors

Alexandria officials are considering requiring the city's taxi drivers to be polite -- not just to their passengers but at all times to city officials and people on the street, the Washington Examiner reports.

The proposed rule change is so broad that cab drivers say it effectively regulates their personal behavior even when they're not driving someone around. If officials were to approve the change, Alexandria would be unique among virtually every other local government in the Washington area that regulate taxi services within their jurisdictions. Cab drivers say government regulation of politeness goes too far.
