Who’s the Bad Guy

Robberies are just a part of the job as a hack. They tell you this in your TA “training class” but everyone assumes it’ll never happen to them. Some drivers avoid the “bad” areas of town thinking this will stop them from being a victim. The sad thing is life isn’t like the old movies. Robbers don’t wear all black and have a cartoon like eye cover.

The robbers of today blend in. I’ve seen a video of a man wearing a suit pull a knife on a fellow hack while driving down the road. It’s amazing the lengths that some people will go to in order to try and trick us.


This is the most recent picture of robbers who went above and beyond. They have a car seat and were picked up in a new, upscale part of town.  I was told that they even had a couple of bags of food to go along with the fact that they were at a grocery store. It’s amazing how much thought goes into this but every single person that robs a cab forgets that we have cameras in our cabs. The best part of this group is that they called in asking for a cab, which makes the crime even that much worse.

    • Thanks. I look at everyone the same, down and out in Vegas. I trust my gutt and have been Lucky to only have one true robbery. Hope you and your fam have a great new year.

  3. Imagine what they could accomplish if they spent the energy they wasted concocting their robbery plan, into looking for a job? Stay safe, you!
