Once you go down that 'youtube' road, it's hard to get back off.
That guy is great.

Well, your Sir has had his first experience in a Ford Transit Connect taxi. If I can be careful enough it won't be repeated.
Holy smokes! First you climb up a flight to get in and then what a rigid, bumpy ride - with the "oh, %$#!!&" handle just out of reach.
Better stick with the old Crown Vics.

Since Ford brought them out, I wondered what they rode like. I know of a guy who bought one and outfitted it like a mini RV for camping trips.
In NYC it seems most of the newer cabs today are Escape hybrids, what will they do now since the new Escapes are all solely gas operated?
BTW, really liked the Nascar link.

Yeah, a lot of Escape hybrids around here. Perfectly fine to ride in.
Lots of Camry hybrids as well though I've yet to catch one of those.

Had my first ride in a Prius taxi today. Kind of like riding in the back of a Corolla. Not the jarring experience the Transit Connect was.
An Escape hybrid for the trip back. Nice ride actually.
Plenty hot out there today.

The tape will probably hang her but all she had to do was say "I thought I dialed 511".
Or 411 or 211. So many similar numbers out there it's going to happen more and more. Not to mention dialing 911 when you sit down with your phone in your back pocket.

you've been through teenage daughters.
I guarantee they would consider not being able to find their cell phone to be an emergency!
