CLEVELAND Somali immigrants who work as cab drivers at the Cleveland airport say police are ticketing them when they step out of their cabs for ritual Islamic prayers.
Police say they are enforcing a requirement that all drivers remain in their vehicles outside the terminal and are trying to maintain order in an increasingly competitive airport cab scene.
A sign warns taxi drivers not to leave their vehicles within 300 feet of the terminal or their car will be towed. Police are not towing, but they are issuing tickets that carry a 150-dollar fine, plus 69 dollars in court costs.
The U-S-A Taxi company says a third of its drivers have quit over the enforcement.
Can a CAIR lawsuit be far behind?
