Skipping Out On A Bill Can Be (nearly) Fatal

Man stiffs cabbie, is hit by oncoming car

A man was in critical condition after he tried to flee a cab without paying his fare and stepped in the path of an oncoming car Saturday in Salt Lake City.

To answer the obvious question, Yes, Alcohol was involved. A somewhat less than obvious lesson here might be that cabbies should request a deposit prior to taking belligerent drunks anywhere. That poor cabbie – stiffed on his fare, and probably lost quite a few more by having to stick around while the police and ambulance came.
