Unlicensed Taxi Driver Crashes Cab

Yesenia Martinez5 years ago

A Chicago couple was traveling in a taxi managed by a well-known cab company when their cab operator began to drive erratically and crashed into a tree and two buildings. When the car came to a stop, the driver told them to call 911 and fled from the vehicle. They soon found that the driver's chauffeur license had been revoked a year before and that he was operating the vehicle illegally at the time of the crash. 

This auto accident sheds light on the dangerous practice of illegal subleasing in the taxi industry. 

About Unlicensed Taxi Drivers

  • Illegal sublease occurs when a taxi driver lends out his cab to another driver.
  • Reports indicate that subleasing is a very common practice in the Chicago taxi cab industry.
  • The city of Chicago, where the accident occurred, is in the process of reforming their licensing regulation system to avoid future accidents.
