    Love The Word " Town Hall Style " looks like a Miami Meeting of The LAG ,Only Taxi owners speak and all in favor of Their Mafia 's Protecting their Turf .This is It . We made the Pie , We Cut the Pie , We place a Value on the Pieces ,We distribute it,We say who could eat it.We apply the rules. How To solve this Problem?? One Car, One Owner,One Operator ! And the entire For-Hire plays with the Same Deck . Same Vehicles Restrictions, Same Insurance, Same vehicles life .If We all play with the same Rules this wont happens .. Now taxi Self insured , and ask TNC to get A+ rated insurance and they call that" Level Playing Field "
