    Minneapolis/St Paul Int'l cab drivers refuse riders who are carrying alcohol

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/01/25/oppenheim.cabbies/index.html

    About three quarters of the 900 cabbies serving the airport are Muslim, and many have been regularly refusing passengers carrying beer, wine or liquor.

    In the past five years, 5,400 would-be taxi passengers at the airport were refused service for this very reason, said the Metropolitan Airport Commission, or MAC. Last May, passenger Bob Dildine says he waited for 20 minutes, and five cab drivers would not give him and his daughter a ride. He was carrying wine he bought on vacation.
    Interesting article.
    Muslim law forbids someone to transport alcohol.
    However, they may be crossing a legal boundary into discrimination by refusing to let legal clients ride...

    I wonder if it's ok if the alcohol is already in you.
