The door of a cab is shown in a scene in the movie The Producers (1968) where the fare is printed onto it. Was this a common practice in those years or does this cab belong to a special company etc?

    Its not exactly uncommon even more recently upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/fe/Miami_taxi_fare.jpg – iandotkelly Sep 11 '16 at 22:25
  • @iandotkelly Is this the same in New York? I've just found [goo.gl/oaAt0D ] (this article) where I can see the fare being printed on cabs from fifties but the recent ones don't have it. – Montag451 Sep 11 '16 at 22:29

    You can search search something like 'antique taxi cabs', you see a number of classic yellow NYC cabs with the fare written on the side. Some of these look potentially cars from the 50's & 60's. – iandotkelly Sep 11 '16 at 22:49

    Pretty much all the taxis in my city do that. Taxis are regulated according to city rules, so if a particular city requires that, they probably have to do it, both then and now. – PoloHoleSet Sep 12 '16 at 14:00
