"Excellent article. I lived in Paris for 17 years, where taxi drivers behave like royalty. I remember when I was a kid a taxi driver threw the tip my father gave him out of the window because it wasn't large enough! There is no logical reason why the taxi business shouldn't be open to fair and honest competition."
