NYC to Cabbies: Oops!

(New York - WNYC) -- WNYC's Kathleen Horan has been reporting on NYC taxi drivers and their reaction to the assertion almost all of them stole from customers: disbelief, anger, wounded pride. Now it turns out the city's accusations may have way overreached. Outgoing Taxi and Limousine Commissioner Matthew Daus is acknowledging "significant" errors in the data, and saying the city doesn't yet know how many (or how few) cabbies actually overcharged customers. Turns out the TLC had data "it didn't know existed" that may exonerate many cabbies.
