Today things are different, very different.
Last night at approximately 8:00pm two cabs were heading northbound just past the busy Dundas Square area. At some point, the testosterone kicked in and they apparently decided to see just whose Chevy Impala was quicker. Was it a propane versus gasoline showdown? A Beck Taxi versus Royal cab battle? Only the Metro Toronto Police know the rationale behind why they decided to race and decided it was enough to seize both taxis for 7 days under Ontario's strict street racing and stunting laws.
EDIT: The pair of drivers have been formally charged, their licences are revoked for seven days and they also face fines of $2,000 to $10,000 if convicted. It is not clear whether the drivers will be fired or not as a result as both companies involved were unavailable for comment.
