  2. This is unsubstantiated but I wonder if Debra Johnson has been the one putting the screws to the cab drivers these last couple of years, I think Hayashi is just Ms Johnson or someone else s puppet, to interface with the drivers, and implement the harsh treatment drivers have been getting from medallion sales, to electronic waybills, credit card charges, and straight disrespect read the long line we had to wait in to renew our A cards.
    Who ever it is wether systemic or a person that has been slamming down on the cab drivers I hope that they see us as hardworking people trying to survive and take mercy on us and treat us as equal human beings.

  3. To Johnny Walker,

    Comments that may be offensive do not necessarily merit removal from this website.

    However, I removed a comment you posted based another reader's observation sent to me.

    Denoting a person's gender or physical appearance in a negative way does not necessarily address any method, good or bad, with which they legislate taxi policy.
