Sacramento Taxi Drivers Say English Test Requirement Is Setting Them Up For Failure « CBS Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Taxi drivers required to pass an English test to renew their permits in Sacramento say they’re being set up for failure.

Part of a newly passed ordinance that recently went into effect requires drivers to know a certain level of English. The city says the requirement came from passenger complaints.

“We received a number of complaints from passengers that they couldn’t communicate with the driver of where they need to go and what they needed,” said city revenue manager Brad Wasson.

The tests, one written and one digital, are required for a driver to renew their permit. In the first week, 18 of the 28 drivers failed at least one portion.

This is so entirely out of character for politically correct, hard left, progressive, multicultural Sacramento that the only thing I can imagine is that some powerful state legislators must have had run-ins with Mohamed the Cab Driver.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. This is so entirely out of character for politically correct, hard left, progressive, multicultural Sacramento that the only thing I can imagine is that some powerful state legislators must have had run-ins with Mohamed the Cab Driver.

    Probably wouldn’t let his(her) dog into the cab.
