Drive By via Taxi

babytaxi.jpgOK so you really want to smoke this sucka, and you know he’s having a Baby Shower so you figure this is a great time to bust out a drive by. You can pop him and maybe his family too right? But crap! Your car has a flat tire, what do you do? Call a cab apparently.

Jimmy Drisdom, 35, was fatally shot on the sidewalk outside of a house in the 2600 block of Raymond Avenue about 5:45 p.m. yesterday, said Los Angeles police Lt. John Pasquariello.

The shots were fired from a taxi, witnesses told ABC7. The gunman had a semiautomatic rifle, and bullets pierced a metal security door, wounding the three inside, police said.

Does a taxi charge extra for that? I know sometimes there’s extra fees if you cram a buncha people in, or have a ton of luggage, but I’ve never seen a sign about extra charges for shooting guns out the window at people. I wonder if the cab company is responsible for that? Or can they say they were just hired to drive from point A to point B and what the people do in the car between the two places isn’t their problem? Is this the first time this has ever happened? If so, honestly, I have to say I’m shocked it didn’t happen in NYC just because they have way more cabs than we do.

  1. I’m not sure if there is an official extra charge for the firing of a weapon out of a taxi, but I think I would want a substantial tip. I once drove a fellow to a gang fight in my cab. He told me he usually went by bus, but that day he didn’t want to miss kicken those guys. Per the cab laws, in San Jose, we are not required to drive passengers that are intent on doing anything nefarious. If it seemed like funny business was going on, and I felt there was not much I could do to stop it, I would stay out of it.
