Taxi cab drivers’ exhaustion may lead to personal injury
There are many reasons why people all over Chicago choose to take taxi cabs instead of public transportation. The ease and swiftness of taxis greatly reduce travel time, thus making them a great convenience. Taxi cabs can be seen weaving through the traffic-congested streets of downtown and all over the city. Yet any person who has lived in a city as big as Chicago can attest to the fact that taxi drivers tend to be extremely aggressive. Competing for passengers and fare can often lead to reckless and negligent driving despite the experience a taxi cab driver may have. The long, stressful hours of driving and the pressures associated with the job, often cause taxi drivers to become exhausted. Unfortunately, this exhaustion poses tremendous peril as it can lead to a tragic taxi cab accident.
