Cab driver demand spikes during storm

Posted: Updated:

The winter weather is leading to an increase in people using cabs.

Yellow Cab Co. said that with the recent ice storm and conditions this week, their schedules are filling up with people wanting to get to where they need to without harming their car.

FOX Carolina drove with driver Nelson Delanuez Tuesday evening and found people wanting to stay out of harm's way.

"Some are traveling to the airport, others don't want to take a chance and having their car getting stuck somewhere. If they live on a driveway that's steep or on a hill, they'll call us," said Delanuez.

Despite a willingness to drive in winter conditions, Delanuez said that drivers will do their best to stay out of harms way and may even refuse to pick a customer up if conditions are too dangerous.
