GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Taxis that run in Greensboro will go through safety inspections on March 22, Greensboro Police announced.
The inspection is to make sure all 160 taxis are meeting the safety and cleanliness standards, and if the meters operate properly.
The inspections are required by a city ordinance and are done every two months.

Along with the safety standards, the amount a taxi driver can charge is regulated by the city.
