Sorry for being so NY-centric. Each cab has a number (and a medallion -- a huge rubberized disc riveted to the hood). Without it, you can't drive a cab. And there are a finite number of them; the Taxi and Limo Commission just auctioned some off recently -- for $300,000 apiece! A cabdriver can be expected to pay this off in 20 years if he pays $28,300 annually. So cabdrivers have a strong incentive not to lose their licenses.
