Citizen with a Question

I would like to know why, as a resident of Leland, why is it that I am not allowed to call a Brunswick county permitted cab to take me to Wilmington and to pick me up and bring me home from Wilmington? This to me makes absolutely no sense at all. I have used this particular cab company for the last 7 years, and now he is being told by the city of wilmington police that he is not allowed to pick me up in Wilmington even if I CALL HIM?? Don't I have a right to call any legally permitted taxi company in the state of NC that I chose to transport me wherever I want?? I was informed that he could be ticketed for picking me up within city limits even if I CALL HIM for a ride. To me this is insane. What gives the city of Wilmington the right to do this? I'm talking about a legally license and insured taxi company, an inspected and regulated cab, registered with the NC secretary of state. A completely LEGAL TAXI COMPANY that is not allowed to pick me up at MY request? There is something seriously wrong with this picture. Something seriously wrong with the city of Wilmington, and I for one, am glad I am not a resident.
