Additional Taxis
By Richard Morgan


March 29, 2010

As someone who works in the retail sales business, I know that wait times for a taxi can be very long in the Summer. So it is fine and well that some oppose additional Taxis, citing short wait times for bar-goers at night as ample reason to reject the proposal, but what about normal, everyday people who are just trying to get home with their groceries during daylight hours?

Anyone who has ever stood in front of a store with a bunch of frozen food might agree with me that wait times can be far too long. Not to mention that as a former drinker and bar-hopper, the longer I have to wait drunk for a cab the more likely I am to give up and try to drive myself home. Pretty sure I am not the only bar-goer who has ever felt that way.

So I hope that our elected "leaders" will seriously consider their constituents needs before rushing to once more restrict free trade in Ketchikan.
