  1. I hope they find him. The same happened to me while I was at Georgetown.

  2. With that description how could they not find him?

  3. @mostwanted,

    I thought the same thing. That description should pin it right down to about 70% of the cab drivers in DC.

  4. I will say there is a 99% chance that the person who did this is an illegal driver who isn’t licensed to drive a cab in the District. How come the number of assaults against the riding public by cab drivers rose sharply all of a sudden? DC police and the hack-inspectors need to go after these illegal hackers who have nothing to loose, instead of harassing legitimate cab drivers for having an incomplete manifests.
