Taxi cab companies in Las Vegas are under fire for bilking customers out of nearly $15 million last year. An audit found that cabbies ripped riders off of $14.8 million last year with a practice known as “long hauling” or as most people call it, taking the scenic route. About 22.5% of cab rides to and from the airport were done in this fashion. There are fines for “long hauling’ but a new bill would double those penalties. Cabbie unions say drivers don’t want to “long haul” their passengers but are forced to by their bosses.
