THURSDAY. MAY 14, 1998 NATION THE SALINA JOURNAL T NEW YORK TAXI STRIKE Cabbies strike over courtesy drive With nary a taxi to be seen, New Yorkers hoof it or settle for subway or bus By TIM WHITMIRE The Associated Press NEW YORK — You want nice? We'll show you nice. Thousands of New York taxi drivers went on strike Wednesday • in a one-day protest against proposed !new rules aimed at making cabbies more courteous. The strike brought unaccustomed ; quiet to the city's streets but meant big headaches for many New Yorkers and visitors, some of whom gave up looking for a cab and either walked or took the subway or the bus. "It's an inconvenience," said Tom Blum, 39, Manhattan, who was among . • those who had to wait in long lines for ••' a cab at LaGuardia Airport in Queens. "The taxi system is one of the aspects of New York you can always count ; on." The city has 12,200 cabs. Police said '. only about 200 were on the streets of Manhattan. The "yellow flu" was prompted by f tougher rules proposed last month as !. part of Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's cam'; paign to make the city more civil. <• The Taxi and Limousine Commission • is proposing drug tests for drivers, a • ban on smoking and blaring music, and The Associated Press Passengers arriving Wednesday at New York's La Guardia Airport wait on the curb as they search for buses, limousines or other ways to get into the city. fines of up to $150 for ignoring or cursing customers. Other fines would triple or quadruple, some escalating to license revocation. The commission votes on the rules May 28. Biju Mathew, a strike organizer for the taxi drivers, who are not unionized, said the cabbies want more respect and a hand in rule-making. "If these rules pass, I'll have to go on welfare," said Jaisin Ahmed, who has driven a cab for five years. The mayor said the drivers' attempt to bring the city to a halt had backfired. "Several people called and told us it was pleasant not to have all the horns blaring," Giuliani said. "So this may actually have an opposite effect." Debbie Finley was waiting a half- hour to get a cab to take her — and a load of materials needed for her work as a graphic artist — from the Upper East Side to SoHo. "I forgot all about the taxi strike until I attempted to flag a taxi, and I didn't see one," she said. "Finally, when I saw one, I had to compete with a few others trying to flag the same taxi. And then he didn't even stop! Just zipped by all of us. I swear he was laughing, too." At the Port Authority bus terminal, Jorgen Nilsson, 29, a university researcher from Sweden, and his girlfriend, Catrin Thorson, 29, a physician, arrived on their first trip to New York to find no taxis. The pair, bound for a hostel about a mile away, encountered long lines at a subway token booth, so they shouldered their backpacks and set off on foot. It was the first rainless day in New York nearly two weeks. "I think it's good. I like the fresh air," Thorson said. COURTS Mom sues over arrest for leaving her baby „. Danish Actress claims 'girl was safely • in view outside cafe By The Associated Press NEW YORK — A Danish woman who ended up in jail briefly for leaving her baby girl unattended in a stroller outside a restaurant while she dined inside has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the city. Anette Sorensen's lawsuit accuses the city and unidentified police officers of falsely arresting and maliciously prosecuting her, causing her "profound humiliation, degra- dation and embarrassment." The lawsuit, filed on Monday in U.S. District Court, also alleges the city deprived Sorensen of custody of her daughter, Liv, for four days. The girl was 14 months old at the time. Sorensen, a 30-year-old Danish actress who was visiting from Copenhagen, was arrested May 10,1997, after police spotted the baby in a stroller parked on a sidewalk outside a restaurant where she was dining with the baby's father, Exavier Wardlaw. Police said they went to the restaurant after getting complaints from other diners who were upset that the child appeared to be alone. The couple spent two nights in jail, and baby Liv was in foster care for four days before being reunited with her mother. In the lawsuit, Sorensen said the baby was asleep in her stroller in a fenced-in area in front of the restaurant's window and in clear view of her mother. Police said the couple the Salina Journal BRIEFLY were seated two tables back from the window. Sorensen also contends her daughter cried and screamed at the stationhouse and that no one told her who had taken the girl, or where she was. Once freed from jail, Sorensen said, she and her child were forced to remain in the United States for 10 days. Charges of disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment later were dismissed.
