Most taxis will be off the road at midnight tonight (January 24, 2011) due to the shield dispute. The deadline for Winnipeg cabs to have full driver shields installed will pass at 12 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

[quote]On Monday night, Unicity and Duffy’s owners confirmed that their fleets will be off the road. Unicity operates 235 cabs, over half Winnipeg’s total; Duffy’s has 190.[endquote]

UPDATE: Look’s like they’re still on the road.
