Court Clears Way For Fenty’s Meter Plan: The Post is reporting that Superior Court Judge Brook Hedge has sided with the mayor in his quest to install meters in taxi cabs. This appears to be a huge blow to area cab drivers. But let’s face it, they will most likely continue their fight against meters. We can expect to live with the zone system for a while. What are the cabbies going to do?
