NEW YORK (AP) — Questions about local geography are taking a back seat on the exam drivers must take to operate a New York City yellow cab.
The Taxi and Limousine Commission says GPS technology has a lot to do with the change. The agency says the new exam can now cover more safety issues.
According to The New York Times, spokesman Allan Fromberg calls it a “catching up to the times.”
Just 10 geography questions remain, and they have to do with navigating the city with a map.
