City council takes on taxi safety

The Chicago City Council meets Wednesday and is expected to consider a new ordinance on taxi safety.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel introduced the proposal Monday. It is aimed at improving safety for passengers and also at increasing efficiency.

If passed, the reforms would be the first changes in 10 years.

They do not include a fare increase and that has some cabbies upset.
