Robbery of taxi passengers has been a problem for years in Mexico City, and authorities recently announced the deployment of special police to combat the problem. Officers will monitor various areas of the city, including the airport, bus stations and movie theaters. As many as 120 incidents are reported each month, or four a day, but in most cases finding the perpetrators isn’t easy because few victims can describe the driver or identify the vehicle in which they were robbed. When in need of a cab, phone a radio taxi and ask the dispatcher for the name of the driver and the vehicle’s license number.
