One question (and I'm not sure of the right answer).... Should cab drivers have an expectation of privacy? They are operating quasi-public vehicles that require a public license. Might we compare them to airline pilots, who are also operating private vehicles but who are subject to government licenses and whose every move is recorded and tracked?
Flip argument is that some passenger trips could also be tracked. Imagine if a stalker / jealous boyfriend (or a reporter) wants to see where a woman went after she got in a cab? If the stalker got the cab # and location of where she got in the cab, he could find the end point of the ride. (Even without the cab #, rides from remote pickup spots could still be tracked just with pickup location / time.)
