Consumer protection?

Limo fleet owner Daniel Steiner may lose his taxi license. Did he overcharge customers? Drive an unsafe rig?

No, Tampa, Florida, authorities say he wasn't making enough money. The law requires a minimum $40 fare, and Steiner allegedly was charging less.

(Another prime example of government gone wild. Now, I suppose that Steiner will go on welfare and other tax payers will have to support him and his family. Or, he may be tempted to become part of the "unregulated" employed and start selling drugs to kids. I'm sure glad government is looking out for our best interests.)
