Taxi Cab Dilemma . . .

What's the dilly-yO? Why can't taxi cabs adhere to one simple rule . . . turn your light ON when your open for fare - shut it OFF when you have passengers. How hard can it be??? It doesn't seem like many cab drivers in San Francisco follow this rule.

MY SUGGESTION: A simple red light tied into the taxi's meter system. When the meter's running, the red light shuts off. Pretty simple heh? A red light would signal to everyone that the taxi is empty and open for fare. When the light is off, everyone would know that the taxi is unavailable. Seems like this would save everyone a lot of time (and patience).
