Finally testing meters in cabs

I don't know why it has taken Williams so long to do this.

"Washington (AP) - Nearly two dozen District cabs are cruising the city with meters running Monday, but it's only a test. The D.C. Taxicab Commission wants to find out how time and distance meters could affect fares and the earnings of the 7,500 licensed cab drivers in the city. For the next eight months, about 20 cabs will operate with the meters even though passengers will still be charged based upon the District's zone fare system. Next summer, Howard, UDC and George Washington University will analyze the data. " NewsChannel 8
