Catching a cab in L.A. can be quite complicated. Finding one isn't usually an issue but finding a real one is. L.A. has quite a problem with "Bandit Cabs." These are taxis that have everything except for proper permits or insurance. For the most part getting into a bandit cab isn't that big of a deal.
However bandit cabs aren't regulated, drivers usually are unlicensed strangers and the vehicles are sub-standard. Usually the fare is inflated in bandit cabs and since the drivers aren't licensed by the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, they haven't had a background check for a criminal past. It's best to call a cab.
