The attempt to catch illegal limousine and taxi operators in the city’s Meatpacking District is likely to happen in the next month.

NEW YORK — Authorities are reportedly cracking down on illegal limousines and taxis in the Meatpacking District.

According to the The New York Post, the New York City Police Department and the Taxi and Limousine Commission are planning a sweep of unlicensed black cars and stretch limos early next month.

In a recent sweep, investigators gave out more than a hundred summonses and impounded 10 vehicles.

Officials say the cars regularly lurk outside trendy nightclubs hoping to pick up club-goers. The illegal limos are also clogging streets in the area, causing traffic jams.

The penalties for driving an unlicensed taxi range from fines of $400 to $1,000. Drivers can also receive up to 60 days in jail.
