Video: Why do so many immigrants drive cabs in Denver?

In short, it's because of the language barrier and the fact that many immigrants who drive cabs are Muslim, which makes getting a job that much harder, says Ahmed Odawaay, 30, who drove a cab in Denver from 2003 to 2009.

Odawaay is a source in "Taken for a Ride," this week's feature story by Westword staff writer Joel Warner. (Think you could be a taxi driver? Take Odawaay's taxi driver test!)

Below are two clips from an interview with Odawaay, who says driving a taxi cab -- for him, anyway -- "is the worst thing you could ever do."
