Cabs Overcharging??!

What do we do when Cabs overcharge from Tarrytown rail stop?

Cabs overcharging at the Tarrytown rail stop. It's $4 within Tarrytown. What do we do when this happens? I was told by cab#15 "It's $6 today because it's dangerous."  I simply paid because I was extremely tired & COLD after waiting over 40 minutes for bus 13 that never arrived.  Thanks

Well, you did day Tarrytown and that the driver said "it's $6 today because it's dangerous". Read this article. http://tarrytown.patch.com/articles/police-bust-price-gouging-cabbies What you can do is call, or better yet, go to the Police Department and file a criminal complaint, not a blotter entry, I think it's petty larceny. Call Michael Blau too. Likely, he or she is a repeat offender and will be slapped with a small, slap on the wrist fine by Judge McGovern, which is exactly what cause these people to continually overcharge local residents, including seniors. If the village had any balls, they would revoke their taxi driver permits permanently, especially the repeat offenders. This is a fail on the villages part.

John, I live in Whiteplains Road (tarrytown). I take cabs from time to time & i give them $5. I will NO longer give them a tip.... ONE BAD apple. He did the same to the other 3 passengers in the car, two going to 330 S Broad & the other to Benedict. If he did that to me, a local, I could only imagine what they charge visitotors. Thanks for sharing link. I will certainly make a complaint.
