Nassau County Charging $300 Fee for Drop-Offs

Posted on December 7, 2005 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

NASSAU COUNTY, N.Y. — The Nassau County Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) has begun enforcing a regulation requiring that city livery drivers pay a $300 first-time fee to cross the city line and drop off passengers in the county. TLC officials hope the new program also could dissuade unregistered drivers from renting their own cars and charging higher fees.

Taxis will not have to pay the fee, unless they do radio dispatch within the county. If livery drivers don't display the registration decal, they will be subject to a $300 to $1,500 fine and can have their car seized, a Nassau TLC official said. Victor Dizengoff, executive director of the Black Car Assistance Corp., said the plan was unconstitutional and simply a way for the county to generate dollars.
