New Cabs

In the past week, I found myself jumping not into yellow boat-sized Lincolns, but rather zippy little Priuses. Yes, hybrids have hit the world of taxis.

Both drivers had gotten them in the past month, and they said they were getting about 40 MPG rather than 15. Not bad.

I tried driving a Prius — once. Well, actually, I never got the thing started because it thought I was stealing it. Perhaps it was because I took out the “key” that I wasn’t supposed to ever remove — instead of just pushing the “on” button on the dash.
