Cabbies Accused Of Taking Passengers Hostage
(Las Vegas, NV) – Competition has led some Vegas cab drivers to hold passengers hostage. The “Review-Journal” says at least six people have told the state Taxicab Authority their drivers have locked the doors in an effort to squeeze a bigger tip out of them. Cabbies claim their take-home pay has dropped because more taxis are allowed during major events such as the recent Consumer Electronics Show. The authority is investigating the complaints.
