Should I have reported this cab driver?
Tonight I flagged down a cab headed West on M St, got inside, and told him my address in Dupont. Hearing the address, he then told me that he would not take me because he was headed to Virginia and had assumed that I was headed the same way because of the side of the street that I was on.
Disgruntled, I exited the cab and caught another, but I was half-tempted to put up a fight. My understanding is that once a passenger gets inside a D.C. cab, the driver is required by law to take me wherever I request. Is this true? (I am positive it was a D.C. cabbie).
Looking back, I realize I should have asked for his name and ID number so I could report him — assuming my understanding of the law is correct.
