Show-Me Institute Policy Analyst Joseph Miller talks with St. Louis entrepreneur Ed Domain about Ed's 2013 accident in a Harris cab and the response of the Metropolitan Taxicab Commission (MTC).
We also reached out to the MTC for their side of the story. Here's what they told us:
Mr. Domain was in an accident in a Harris Cab. He suffered grievous injuries. As is his legal right, Mr. Domain used the judicial system to reach a financial settlement in the matter.
Harris is in good standing with the Commission. Its CCN was most recently renewed in June 2015.
The MTC inspects every taxi twice a year. As part of that inspection, each vehicle must produce a valid insurance card. In addition, the MTC requires all CCN holders to have valid and current Certificates of Insurance on file.
The MTC has completed an audit of all Cab companies for insurance. All are in compliance today.
