it causes vigorous enforcement. >> that regulation makes it hard for outsiders to compete. >> most in the transportation industry are designed to protect existing transportation companies for competition. >> in many cities more don't dare. in washington, d.c. they demanded every car service but established companies must charge $45 a ride at least. >> i have to character them $45 to go four blocks. nobody is going to ride for 45. >> it is protectionism to protect. >> when they started metro livery it was a great success. the $45 minimum inded that. >> they went back to texas. >> they went to court but the bureaucrats won. >> why would they want to protect existing businesses? >> because they are politically
