12-hour shift

Aren't there rules about how long someone driving is allowed to work?

fusillade762: 12-hour shift

12 hours is the standard shift in most places. Around here a normal shift is from 6 to 6.

Meh, I'm a lightweight and passed all the roadside tests with flying colors at double the limit. If he hadn't insisted on a chem test, I'd have been fine. I can totally believe a cabbie would need a few shots before and throughout his shiat shift to get through the day, probably kept him calm, focused, and less annoyingly chatty.

Speaking of, cabbies, can you just shut up? I don't care. I just want to get there.

I took a cab ride one time when I was pretty drunk and the guy driving me seemed to be much more drunk than I was...luckily I was able to get close enough to home and paid the guy to drop me off at the wrong address because I didn't want to be in the car anymore.  It ruins your good times when you realize that you made the choice not to drink and drive and still might die anyway because the guy whose job it is to give you a ride home and get you there alive might not be able to do it because he's loaded.
That being said, I've taken a lot of cabs and aside from that one time most of the cab drivers were cool and all of them got me where I needed to be...it seems like a tough job and I credit the people who are able to do it and maintain their sanity.  I'm always happy to get home safe and I'm always willing to pay the fare to have someone provide that opportunity.

I'm glad he insisted, then.

It's illegal to drive a taxi when you're unshaven?

That's blatant pogonophobia and as a bearded man I am sick and tired of this kind of legitimized persecution.

Hence another argument for robot cabs.

Bayonne police received a call from a passenger who was dropped off near the Constitution Avenue area complaining that the driver was swerving and driving erratically,  said Rogers.

So, in other words, the passenger got in and let the cab driver drive for a while before coming to the conclusion that he had been drinking?

*shrug* Don't ask me, it was in the police report. Apparently I did better than most sober people.

This story seems to describe half the cab drivers where I grew up in Madison, WI.

Especially Badger Cab.

This. The "I drive drunk as shiat and get away with it!" stories piss me off.

I hope he's trolling, and not just a colossal douche who puts no value on the lives of others.

With road blocks popping up, I would think driving a cab (while drunk) would let you sail right through. You don't need passengers, just roll up and the cops wave you through.

Not condoning DUI, just a thought.

Nah. Nailing a cab or bus driver on a DUI, is like winning the grand prize for them.

Back in my day, they stopped off to ask me to buy 'em a bottle of cough syrup with codeine.
