In a follow up story to the assaults, KHON2 spoke with Howard Higa, president of The Cab, a taxi company that has over 800 drivers, and asked what requirements are necessary to work as a driver for the company. He responded that they needed a taxi license, insurance and a two year background check.

But Higa added that he would like to see this changed, "In my opinion, there are certain crimes or certain things that drivers have done in the past that should never be forgiven," Higa said, "and I believe that the background checks should go further back … They should be five, maybe even 10 years."

"When i acquired the company, it was defunct," Higa says. "Basically, i had loaned someone money and he couldn't pay the debt so he threw the keys on my desk. i said, 'you are kidding me,' and for a year, i didn't do anything, i just let the company get worse and worse."
However, eventually genetics kicked in and Higa, who comes from a long line of men who couldn't walk away from a business challenge, came out of semi-retirement to turn TheCab around.

Howard Higa, president of TheCab, said, "Taxi driving is one of the most dangerous professions in the nation. You're picking up people you don't even know."

Five years ago, panic buttons-hooked up to global positioning systems to alert dispatchers where the cabs are-were installed in vehicles who work for TheCab as a preventive measure. Higa said drivers who work with taxi companies attend yearly safety conferences where they are advised not to go after perpetrators.
"For 30 or 50 bucks, do not risk your life. It's not worth it," he said.
