The City of Chicago hopes to improve taxi service and safety with a new bumper sticker plan.

City officials unveiled the stickers Friday. They say, "How's my driving?" and direct people to call 3-1-1 with the taxi's number to report concerns or compliments.

The city says the stickers are an attempt to make sure taxi drivers use caution on the roadways and get feedback from riders.

"Every single complaint and compliment is read by someone in my department. We track that data, run reports, and we keep a list of bad drivers and good drivers," said Department of Business Affairs Commissioner Rosemary Krimble.

The stickers will go on the back of each cab operating in the city. That amounts to roughly 7,000 taxis.

The stickers will go on the cabs as they each report to their semi-annual city inspection.
