New Brunswick cabbies not looking for 'fare' competition
(02/04/05) NEW BRUNSWICK ? City officials say they are working to keep unwelcome guests out of New Brunswick in an effort to protect the livelihood of local cab drivers.
Police officials say it is illegal for out-of-town cabs to do business within the city. However, some cab drivers in New Brunswick say cabbies from other areas have been ignoring the law and doing business inside city limits. Local cab drivers say the intrusion has been cutting in on their profits.
Authorities say they have been issuing tickets to all outside taxis trying to get fares illegally in the city. They also say they will continue to do so until the uninvited competition gets the message.
