The Taxi and Limousine Commission issued nearly 22,000 "data-generated" summonses in fiscal year 2013, up from 300 such tickets four years ago.

The number of tickets issued to cabbies and medallion owners skyrocketed 7,233% during a Big Brother crackdown featuring GPS technology, officials said Thursday.

The Taxi and Limousine Commission in fiscal year 2013 issued nearly 22,000 "data-generated" summonses alleging drivers committed offenses like overcharging passengers and driving with a suspended hack license, officials said.

That's up from approximately 300 such tickets issued just four years ago - a 7,233% jump - officials said.

The future is here.

"Data-generated" is a horseshit euphemism for "we can't be bothered to have an actual cop do this work, so let a computer do it for us". It'll all fall apart once someone challenges it in court, since you can't cross-examine a GPS.
You get what you deserve NYC, with your voting buffoonery.


I can keep rhythm with no metronome...
The way those assholes drive, it should be up 10,000%.


it's a man, baby!!!
it is that they just got this technology 4 years ago and that happens to be when the city started looking for money to pay their bum population everywhere they could

So what happens? The cab companies settle for pennies on the dollar and demand huge fare increases because their "overhead" costs have risen dramatically.
