1. I can see the drivers' point.
I mean, how can they take passengers on grand tours of the Five Boroughs to go five blocks when some "spy" is watching them? Think of how much money they'll lose if they're forced to be honest. Their children will go hungry! And that doesn't even factor in the revenue lost from selling people luggage.
