Commissioner Daus, New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission

Dear Commissioner Daus,

NYC taxis are awesome. They are (usually) plentiful, quick and quite affordable (when compared to taxis in other cities). Most taxi drivers are at least marginally courteous and not one of them has ever gotten me killed.

I know that these drivers work long hours without breaks, and that stopping to pee is often out of the question. And really, you can't hold it forever; solutions are required! I beg of you please, however, to direct the drivers to dispose of their pee-filled Snapple and Poland Spring bottles in the proper receptacles. NOT at the base of the leafy trees that line my street, NOT in the gutter. They are very unsightly and even worse to trip over.

Like taxis, public trash cans are plentiful in our fine city. Can't they please just put those bottles there?

New York
