Should a man accused of DUI while working as a taxi driver face stiffer penalties?

Over the weekend a taxi cab driver here was arrested for DUI while on the job, with a passenger in his cab.  

Do you think he should face stiffer penalties because he was arrested on the job versus someone who does not work driving other people?

 Yes.  He should definitely lose his driver's license and whatever license/certification he needs to drive the taxi.  He should also receive whatever the state's mandatory sentence is.

He should be fired, charged with a DUI and yes should get some kind of extra penalty. I don't know about you all but if I get in a cab I expect my ds and I to make it to our distinction in one piece!

I think all drunk drivers should be punished, there are no room for them but a taxi driver who is paid to drive people from place to place, you bet your butt they should have a hefty-er sentence

I agree with this

yes anyone who works with public transportation should get stiffer penalities they should be example drivers
