FILE - In this Sept. 24, 2009 file photo, passengers ride in a taxi in downtown Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Taxi drivers are known to pay extortionists more than $500 a year to park on public property. During Christmas, the cabbies dish out another $500 each in holiday “bonuses.” This capital of 1.3 million people is a lawless place, but it does seem to have its own set of unwritten rules for living with the daily dangers.
