CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS)–Cab drivers in the city of Camden may soon be put under regulations required by the state of New Jersey.
Assemblyman Whip Wilson used to be a Camden City Councilman. Constituents would constantly complain about how taxi fares would vary widely depending on when someone would ride and who was driving.
So he has a bill which cleared an assembly committee that would require any town with more than 10,000 people to regulate their cabs.
“I have talked to backers who were actually shocked that Camden had no kind of system in place when it comes to taxicab regulations as far as it comes to meters or fares.”
Wilson says most other towns in the state either use those meters or have zones set up by local government.
