Cabbie Code

Somehow it never occurred to me that taxi drivers would have a dress code to follow.  It seems like a pretty independent business, without a lot of rules to follow – cabbies decide what passengers they’ll take, the routes they’ll take, what music they’ll play, and (it generally seems) what speed they’ll drive.

So, I was surprised to see that today the taxi cab dress code is getting an overhaul.

Though, to be fair, it is the sort of dress code you’d expect from such an independent organization – the code is really only suggestions and reminders of what is appropriate to wear.

  • Professional attire (with no hints as to what that might be…)
  • No “short shorts”  (is this really rampant problem among cab drivers?!)
  • No open-toed shoes (you’d really have to try to see what shoes your driver was wearing from the back seat…)

But, all those folks who’ve complained to the Taxi and Limousine Commission about their driver’s dress can rest assured that they’ve been heard…

If only this many people would call their Representatives about something important!!
