Hoboken cabs are inspected?

3/24/2008:

Hoboken411 reader Eric noticed some kind of cab “inspections” going on at the Municipal Garage over on Observer Highway last week.

“I was walking by the Muni garage at about 9am and the HPD were set up inside had the cabs rolling through, what looked to be an inspection of some sort. I took a couple shots on my phone. The cab by the curb had just been told to pull over and wait by one of the cops, but I didn’t have time to stick around to see what was going on.”

I don’t know about you, but each cab I’ve ever been in felt like I was in Fred Flinstone’s luxury ride. Quite possibly the most jarring, kidney-stone inducing rides on the planet.

What exactly are they “inspecting” over there, wallets?

This is the annual taxi inspection. The cabs are checked and all the drivers paperwork and insurance etc. It is done for safety issues that came up a few years ago.

Maybe the garage is painting Indian Way cars yellow and they’re the new taxis we’re getting. Indian Way would fit right in with the rest of the junk. All over town anyway.

Nah, that’s just probably how they run their money trafficing and drug deals.
