This is something that we as cab drivers deal with all the time. Whether it be a scooter , a bicycle, or a motorcycle in this case. He likes to be sandwiched between the double extension bus and a row of cabs...Hmmmmmmmmm...I would say safety for him right now is shit out of luck until he picks a lane like a normal safe motorcycle rider. I have had a few close calls and have witnessed these guys taking chances and winding up on the hood of a yellow cab or even barreling into pedestrians one night. Some call'em Kamikazes, I call 'em assholes...and I didn't even get to the new bike taxis that have no regard for the rules we have to follow. However I'm not hear to complain, this city has all good and bad...we have to take the good with the bad , that's why we are New Yorkers and thats why I am The King of New York Hacks.
