VIRGINIA BEACH-- There are a lot of taxi cab companies in Hampton Roads and today it was Joe's Job to drive one.

Joe trained with Ray Ellis, an award winning cab driver with Black and White Taxi of Virginia Beach.

Ray has made a career out of getting people where they need to go and loves the freedom. He says he even put two kids through college.

'A lot of people say, 'Well, you are a cab driver,' and a lot of people look down on the fact that you are a cab driver but no, if you are happy at doing something, to me it is more important than being making money and being miserable,' said Ellis.

Joe was surprised to learn that it is illegal to hail a cab in Hampton Roads and each city determines the rates those cab companies charge.
