Minnesota’s Muslim cab drivers face crackdown

The Metropolitan Airports Commission voted unanimously to impose the new penalties beginning in May on Muslim cab drivers who refuse to give rides to travelers carrying alcohol or accompanied by dogs. Under the new regulations a first offense would result in a 30-day cab license suspension and a second in a two-year taxi license revocation. The current penalty only requires that cab drivers who refuse a fare to go back to the end of the taxi queue, costing them time and money.
