Harlem Levine Calls City To Tighten Taxi Work Shifts

mark levine 2On  Monday, November 9, 2015, Harlem Council Member Mark Levine calls on city to strengthen enforcement of taxi driver work shifts after Upper West Side accident:

“The tragic death of  Luisa Rosario is a painful reminder that the grueling conditions many taxi drivers work under aren’t just bad for cabbies, they put all of us at risk.  Mr. Abubkar reportedly drove at least 16 hours every Saturday–proof that the City is not enforcing the legal limit of 12-hour shifts.  We need to put mechanisms in place to make sure no other New Yorkers are endangered by fatigued taxi drivers exceeding the legal limit for hours behind the wheel.”

Council Member Mark Levine, 500 W 141st Street, New York, NY 10031
