A little uneasy in Juneau taxis

Posted: Wednesday, June 13, 2007

Does Juneau have minimum requirements for vehicles that service the public, such as taxi cabs?

I have recently used the taxi service here and found my experience rather scary.

With taxi services constantly requesting increases in fares, why don't they upgrade their vehicles to safe ones?

I feel there are several vehicles that are not fit to be on the road. Does the state of Alaska have an inspection policy with vehicles that transport or cater to the public?

I believe there should be vehicle inspections for taxi cab services, as well as minimum standards to be on the road.
