I am an attorney from here in San Francisco, and I am very sorry to learn of this tragic crash. Having handled lots of cases against cab companies in this City, I do know that the training a cab driver needs to get his cab driver's license is not at all stringent ( one week at a City class), and that they generally have no ongoing safety meetings and no ongoing safety training. Cab drivers are allowed to work other jobs and can show up to work tired from their other jobs. As professional drivers, the taxi drivers should be subject to greater regulation, and stricter safety standards like truckers. Still, in California the cab driver is held to the highest standard of care, which is greater than a regular driver. I sincerely hope that the family of this couple finds a good law firm who makes the cab company accountable for this crash. Only when people or companies are made accountable does their behavior change.

Being an attorney... this should perk up the ears of Claude Wyle. The taxi partition very likely knocked unconscious the two who didn't try to get out of the cab when it was on fire. google taxi parittions or steve crowell or http://stevenwcrowell.newsvine.com/
