Say YES to Zone Meters in D.C. sign now

Dear Mayor Fenty, D.C. Council Members and Washington Taxi Commissioners,
To ensure predictable, honest and fair taxi service for all Washington, D.C. residents, workers and tourists, we ask that you mandate that all taxis install meters based on the existing ZONE system using GPS technology to ensure greatest accuracy. Riders would only be charged for the shortest distance between their pick up place and final destination, regardless of the distance driven or time sitting in traffic.
We do not support the time and distance meters since fares are totally unpredictable, are more susceptible to over-charging riders and will likely unfairly victimize riders in the poorest outskirt neighborhoods, through higher prices and less taxi availability.
We believe that taxi passengers deserve the same certainly, clarity and predictability that subway and bus riders enjoy. This can only be achieved with ZONE meters.
Say Yes to fair, accurate and predictable transportation in the Nations Capital. Say Yes to Zone meters.

    Mr Mayor, I recently saw you on Fox 5 stating that every other city has time-distance meter. My question is: Have you then took into consideration their "per-mile" rate before coming up with this insulting "$1.50 per mile" rate that is so from the early 9
