Yellow Cab - Hemet, CA

Yellow Cab - Hemet, CA

Comments

A taxi passenger tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question. The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the footpath, and stopped centimeters from a shop window. For a second everything went quiet in the cab, then the driver said, "Look mate, don't ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me!" The passenger apologized and said, "I didn't realize that a little tap would scare you so much. "The driver replied, "Sorry, it's not really your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver. I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years."
I messaged you
A couple of days ago, someone reported on Hemet Valley Incidents that a cab driver dumped a box of clothes on Mayflower. It is not true. All the cabs have video cameras now, and show clearly that the clothes were already there strewn about. He pulled up beside them, looked for a minute, did not even get out of his cab, and pulled away.

Operating as usual

[04/28/15]   There is something elegant and old school about taking a cab to get to your destination. It speaks to a time of people needing to get from one location to another quickly, but not in such a hurried manner as to spoil the trip.

[04/23/15]   Taxicabs fit into four different categories, each serving a slightly different purpose. They are: vehicles for private hire, limousines, taxibuses, and hackney carriages (from which the term “hack” evolved as a synonym for taxi).

[04/21/15]   Choosing the right taxi service is important. Why? When you’re headed to a crucial meeting or dashing to catch a last-minute flight, you can trust our experienced drivers to deliver you promptly, safely and precisely where you need to be.

[04/16/15]   Do you ever worry that you won’t necessarily realize you’ve passed your drinking limit once it’s time to drive home? Since it’s best not to get behind the wheel if you’ve had anything to drink, you may want to plan on taking a cab so that you don’t even have to think about it at the end of the night.

[04/14/15]   If you’re in a noisy bar, restaurant, or shop, it can be hard to hear your phone or make a phone call for a cab. Fortunately, some companies have set themselves up for text orders or text notifications so you don’t have to worry about a call.

[04/09/15]   In the 1920s, Russian immigrant Morris Markin founded the Checkered Cab Manufacturing Company in Kalamazoo, MI. Sporting a distinctive yellow and black paint job, these cabs soon became the most widely recognized motorized taxi vehicle.

[04/07/15]   We recognize that it’s not always fun to be the only sober person when out celebrating with your friends or family. Rather than drawing straws to determine who will be the designated driver, you can always rely on us.

[04/02/15]   According to a series of tests performed on London cab drivers, the brains of cabbies have an enlarged hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for learning and memory (as well as emotion). This makes sense given all the directions a driver must retain.

[03/31/15]   Although the designated driver system can work well for some outings, there may be occasions when you won’t be able to rely on designated driver not to drink. In these instances, know that you can always rely on us to get you home safely.

[03/26/15]   It never fails. Your car is in the shop and your weekly schedule is packed to the brim. Relax. We’ll drive you to the airport, train station, meetings, appointments, special events and everywhere you need to be.

[03/24/15]   In their earliest inception, taxicabs were mostly used by the relatively wealthy. Even in the 1910s, taxicab drivers were charging patrons fifty cents a mile, which was exorbitant by the standards of the day.

[03/19/15]   Around the turn of the 20th century, people in major urban centers like New York City were looking for an alternative mode of transportation to the horse-drawn carriage. While entrepreneurs experimented with everything from bicycle services to steam powered cars, one transportation model that quickly caught on was the taxi service.

[03/17/15]   There are usually four different kinds of taxicabs that can be licensed: A hail taxi (it can be hailed for public hire), a private hire vehicle (licensed for pre-booking only), taxibuses (like a shuttle bus for private use), and limousines (specialty pre-booked vehicles.)

[03/12/15]   Although taxicabs had been around for decades, 2-way taxi radios weren’t used in taxis until the 1940s. This was an important development in the taxicab industry, as it enabled dispatchers and drivers to communicate much more efficiently.

[03/05/15]   If you travel frequently for work or pleasure, dealing with airport parking can be a hassle. Call ahead to schedule a taxi pickup so you can get to the airport without the stress of dealing with parking.

[03/03/15]   Taxicab drivers do not provide child safety seats in the cabs. You will need to provide your own when traveling with a small child. It is up to each individual cab driver to decide whether or not to accept pets since many are independent contractors.

[02/26/15]   Sporting events and arenas have huge crowds, which means huge parking lots to hold all the cars, which can lead to a long hike before or after the game. Fortunately, a taxi can drop you off and pick you up without having to walk to the end of the lot.

[02/24/15]   Modern cellphones and computers make it possible to get work done almost everywhere you go, which includes on the road. If you have to get somewhere, taking a taxi means you can use that time to get work done instead of having to drive.

[02/19/15]   There's a thousand different things to take care of before you leave for a flight, and the last thing you want to worry about is parking in long-term parking. Fortunately, a taxi will drop you off right at the curb, making it easy to leave for your flight.

[02/17/15]   Some laws surrounding taxicabs in the world can certainly be considered archaic. For instance, it is currently illegal to hail a taxi in England if you have the plague, and in London it is illegal to transport a rabid dog via cab.

[02/12/15]   Did you know that the first taxi services were horse drawn carriages for hire in the early 17 century? These were known as hackney carriages. The first documented service was started by Nicolas Sauvage in Paris in 1640.

[02/10/15]   In Britain and Europe, cabs tend to be black, but in the Unites States we tend to associated yellow with cabs. This comes from 1907, when Harry Allen first imported cabs to New York. He chose to paint them yellow because it's most easily seen at a distance.

[02/05/15]   Did you know that the first American to die in a car accident was hit by a taxicab? In September 1899, a 68 year old man named Henry H. Bliss was helping a friend from a street car when a taxi swerved and hit him.

[02/03/15]   It’s important to remember that taking a taxi to a sporting event doesn’t have to mean scrambling for a ride home when it’s over. We’re always happy to arrange for your return trip before we drop you off so that you’ll have the peace of mind in knowing that you have a ride.

[01/29/15]   Did you know that some of the earliest taxicabs were horse drawn carriages that were for hire in both Paris and London during the early 1600s? The world’s first taxi as we know it today was built in 1897 and named the Daimler Victoria.

[01/27/15]   Did you know that the first taxi company in the United States was called the New York Taxicab Company? Interestingly, its owner, Harry N. Allen, was also the first to paint his taxicabs yellow.

[01/22/15]   By the 1950s, the taxi industry had grown from its humble beginnings to become an integral part of the urban transportation system in the United States. At this time, it was estimated that there were around 12,000 taxis servicing New York City alone.

[01/20/15]   Do you ever find yourself declining invitations to certain events just because you don’t want to deal with traffic to and from the event and the search for parking? When you call one of our taxis, you can sit back and relax while we handle the driving.

[01/15/15]   Multi-leg flights and layovers are getting more and more common, which means by the time you arrive, you're probably exhausted. Fortunately, a taxi can be set up to meet you at the airport, so you can relax for that last leg of your journey.

[01/13/15]   One of the first recorded taxi services was founded by Nicolas Sauvage in Paris in 1640. His horse-drawn carriages were known as fiacres, because the depot was near a shrine to Saint Fiacre, and horse-drawn taxis are still called fiacres in France.

[01/08/15]   When you have to fight your way through the traffic jams created by certain events, you may find that you’re not in the right frame of mind to enjoy the event when you get there. Taking a taxi to your event could allow you to have a better time.

[01/06/15]   When you’ve got a special evening in the city planned for you and your spouse, having to deal with traffic jams can put everyone in a bad mood. Instead, let us handle the driving so that you can both stay focused on having a great time.

[01/01/15]   Ever notice that the word "taxi" is similar to "taxes?" That's because "taxi" is short for "taximeter," which comes from a combination of "tax" (French for tariff or tax), and "meter" (to measure), or literally, a device for measuring how much a patron is taxed.

[12/30/14]   If you’d like an estimate for the fare, you may call ahead and provide the pickup and drop off addresses to the dispatch center. They can provide you with a fare estimate. At that time, you may also schedule a reservation.

[12/25/14]   Have you ever almost missed your flight because the traffic near the airport was so much worse than you expected? Calling a taxi service to take you to the airport can ensure that your driver is better prepared for the airport traffic.
