Over two weeks ago a fellow driver at my garage picked up his final fare of the shift at the Port Authority. They asked to be driven to Crown Heights. It was a silent ride. At the destination the passenger pulled out a gun and asked the driver for cash. Mind you this was around 4:00 on a weekday afternoon. Broad daylight in the Chassidic part of town. He only lost some change and was thankful for his life, as he stood there in line at the garage, telling us fellow drivers the story. There isn't much we can do as cabdrivers to avoid such a situation. Just try to stay safe.
