WHAT DOES GYPSY CAB MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Illegal taxicab operation

Most jurisdictions within and surrounding major cities of the United States require taxicab operators to be licensed, however, many unlicensed cabs are in operation and the numbers are growing rapidly in NY and Baltimore, MD. Illegal cabs can be marked taxi vehicles, and others are personal vehicles used by an individual to offer unauthorized taxi-like services. Illegal cabs are prevalent in cities with medallion systems, which restrict the number of legal cabs in operation. Illegal taxicab operations are a victimless crime although it may affect the economic value of licensed taxis, and safety regulations may be bypassed. Both the drivers and passengers of illegal cabs are taking this risk. However, passengers sometimes find illegal cabs to be more available, convenient, or economical than licensed ones.
