Cab Caught Trolling Bridge In NYC
Life is a lot faster in the city than it is here in upstate. So fast in fact that a cabbie has been tailgating drivers onto the RFK bridge for two years now to avoid paying tolls. How many tolls? $28,240 worth, which is enough to make this cabbie face up to 7 years jail time.
But he was driving so fast and so close, how did he get caught? Good question. Turns out he had an expired E-ZPass transmitter in his car. That along with bridge security footage and records from the cab company brought the 69-year-old's bridge trolling days to an end.
In order to get an idea of what has been happening all these years, watch this clip of Ronin (imdb's #1 car chase). Just imagine one of the cars is a cab, driven by a troll, and it's in NYC.
