The NYC’s Taxi & Limousine (TLC) Police has lately been spending a substantial amount of time on the streets of Boro Park, stopping vehicles and sometimes ticketing and even towing them. The mission of the TLC Police is to enforce the taxi commission’s rules and regulations. They are apparently looking for illegally operating car services, who do not have proper licensing and insurance.
The video below was taken on Sunday in Boro Park, and submitted by a YWN reader.
The reader tells YWN the following:
“The TLC Police were forced by the officers from the NYPD’s 66th precinct to backoff, after brave Boro Parkers would not let them get away with their wild west activities”.
The TLC Police are apparently unaware that many Orthodox Jews give rides to the many residents hitching rides around the neighborhood, never taking a dollar for their services.
