How many Taxis are enough?

It's really sad that one person has caused the media to jump on a story without facts. FACTS: Cities throughout the nation regulate taxicabs. Balancing the supply and demand of Taxicabs allowing full time drivers to earn a reasonable living. The City of Wilmington has as many cabs per capita as New York City! Without the demand for Taxis that New York City has. There is normally a 15 to 30 minute wait in Wilmington for a Taxi. Yes there are peek times,(3 hours on Friday & Saturday nights). But no one should think we need more taxis based on a 6 hour period a week. Have you every gone to Outback Steak House at 7:00pm on Friday night and waited 1 to 2 hours to be seated....Do we need more Resturants? NO...it's peak time for resturants. The National Taxicab Association (TLPA)study, recomends 75 cabs per 100,000 population.
