Arizona Republic A word of warning: When you get into a taxi, make sure there's a meter. And that the rates are posted inside and outside the cab. And the cab's license plate begins with a "Z." advertisement Otherwise, you're on your own. And that could be expensive. That's the message state and city officials are sending out these days, since more demanding state regulations of taxicabs took effect last Saturday. South, central and west Phoenix are among the areas most dramatically affected by the new law.
