Next big tort class - people who ride in cabs

Scientific American reports here:

"When strolling alongside a busy city street on a smoggy summer day, it may seem as if riding in one of the taxis streaming by might provide a respite from the exhaust-choked air. Instead new research from London reveals that taxi rides take a toll on your lungs as well as your wallet.

In fact, taxi cabins expose drivers and riders to more air pollution than any other form of transportation, according to the results of a survey by Surbjit Kaur and her colleagues at Imperial College London."
