(VIA NEWSONE)  New York officials want to increase the fines given to cab drivers who do not pick up people based on race. The New York Post reports:

Officials hope that by increasing the penalties for “refusals of service” — the most egregious nonviolent offense a hack can commit — they’ll stop the 38 percent rise in trip-denial complaints that took place from 2009 to 2010.
