Dear Chief Jenkins :
After a letter from Mr. Edmund W . -Hughes of J uly 7, 1967 , of
which you have a copy, and my letter t o you of July 17, 1967, I fe lt
that the matter of using the taxi lane to pick up private passengers at
the Atlanta Stadium after stadium events had been settled. However,
I was again prevented from doing so after a baseball game a few days
ago. As I stated in my last letter to you, I appreciated your consideration of my request and your help in making it possible for us to use this
lane, but apparently your patrolmen have not received instructions to
allow this.
Since I am told on the one hand that such a thing is now permissible
and am told on the other hand that is is not permissible, I can certainly
E?ee why the patrolmen are confused. Since it apparently has already been
deoided that this lane should be and is available to private vehicles to use
after stadium events for picking up private passengers, I would certainly
appreciate your informing your officers of this fact or else giving me something in writing which I may show them. It is embarrassing to be stopped
in the middle of the street repeatedly after being given assurance that what
I am doing is legal. I would appreciate your consideration and help in this
matter.
Respectfully,
I// ? ; ,(; ~~1
