Taxi cabs and Uber cars are a common sight in Huntsville, especially in and around the airport. Tourists, locals and people in town on business choose to take cabs and Uber cars so that they do not have to worry about driving in unfamiliar areas or after a night out drinking. Taxi driver’s income depends on taking on as many passenger fares as possible and that often means that speed takes precedence in their minds over safety. Unfortunately, sometimes taxis are involved in car accidents, and if you are a passenger during one of these, you need to understand your rights. In order to legally drive these vehicles, these drivers must have insurance. Even if they get cheap taxi insurance online, they’ll still be covered for a variety of events, such as a collision. This means that, after colliding with a taxi, you will be able to swap insurance details.
