Why discriminate animals from taking a cab ride?
In the cases given above, you van see that some drove off immediatly.
So an other cab coming, isn't said nor done. These drivers leave people in need on the street with little to no explenation or assistance.
What reasonable things are you talking about?
So, in all... Why does muslims refuse to take a dog in there car? They just wash them at the end of the day....
Private business is always limited to laws... just like they have to pay taxes and fines, they have to follow the law....
