Reno’s warm climate and proximity to California and Lake Tahoe make it a popular year-round tourist and convention destination, creating regular business for taxi companies in the area. Additionally, Reno-area residents also rely on taxi services when they don’t want to worry about parking in the city or having too much to drink when they have a night out on the town. Regardless of why people hail a cab, they do face risk of injury or fatality when their driver is involved in an accident. Similarly, drivers who share the road with taxis also face the risk of injury when negligent taxi drivers are behind the wheel.
