This is truly a civic hacking app, I love it.

This looks like a marvelous app.  As far as the current thread goes, I don't see a privacy issue in the underlying taxi complaint data, principally because a) it's being generated in small quantities (submissions by individuals) rather than dragnet style; b) the data being collected (alleged rule violations) doesn't, at least in any obvious sense, lend itself to mission creep (tracking human movement through time and space).

Related to this thread, there is a great Taxi Complaint app entered into Big Apps by Jeff Novich, and he has an outstanding blog post here about his many experiences filing complaints, FOILing complaint data,  and actually following-up with phone-based Taxi hearings.  

The app essentially files a 311 complaint on your behalf and helps you track it.  In the blog, he makes some great analogies to Uber and how their drivers must maintain good customer reviews if they want to stay employed.  

It's worth a read.
