As a passenger, you trust your safety to the driver and hope and expect that they make the right decisions. As a passenger, you are at risk from other drivers on the road as well. Taxi drivers get paid for driving distances and the more fairs they can pick up in the shortest amount of time, the more money the can make. It is not unusual to see taxis driving fast, weaving in and out of traffic, making unsafe turns, and failing to signal. What is worse is that many taxi drivers are distracted by their phones, CB radios, navigation computers, and unruly passengers. There is also a special duty that is owed by common carriers, such as taxi cabs, Uber, and limousine drivers, toward their passengers.
