NYC official impounds car used to transport cancer patients to hospital

The Taxi and Limousine Commission functionary ignored the volunteer driver’s protests that the vehicle was not operating unlawfully for hire but was rather being provided as a free charitable service. After all, as someone might have put it, stealing the car of a volunteer driving cancer patients to the hospital is just another name for the things we do together.

  • Notice how quickly NYC political leaders got redress for the volunteer. Hassidic Jews are known to “remember in November.”

  • Almost as important, did the city waive the tow/storage/impound fee? Or is the driver/charity out almost a thousand bucks?
