'In the first incident, at Phelps Place and California Street NW, the attacker slashed a cabdriver's tires and drove a half-block away, police said. He then put his vehicle in reverse and hit the driver "at a high rate of speed," causing him to be "lifted into the air," according to the police report. The cabbie suffered broken ribs, police said.'
"We're calling him 'the Rogue Cabdriver,' " said D.C. Assistant Police Chief Diane Groomes. "It appears that he wants his competition out of the city."

"Rogue Cabdriver" Hmmm...Has a sweet ring to it. Monte Hellman could direct; if Peckinpah or Frankenheimer were still alive they would have been perfect.
The real Rogue Cabdriver's white Crown Victoria would be replaced by a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, and the climax of the movie would involve a demolition derby-style duel with the DC cabbies' one and only true hero...
Heck! Let's just make it "D.C. Cab II -Attack of the Rogue Cabdriver Fool".
