Cab Drivers Renew Licenses Just In Time

It's going to be a busy day for taxi drivers across the city.

Not only will they have a lot a business from people ringing in the new year, but cabbies must renew their permits before the end of the day.

There are 200 cab permits in Fayette County and as of noon city officials say only 125 of them have been renewed.

If it isn't done by 3:30 this afternoon the permits will expire and the driver will not be allowed to legally pick up passengers in Lexington.

For many cab drivers that could mean they would miss out on one of the busiest nights of the year.
