No shaved cabbies for Beijing

If you're heading to Beijing next year for the Olympics you will not see one bald cabbie. The Chinese city department has put into effect a new rule that will outlaw beards and shaved heads for the men taxi drivers. This move comes just two months after the department banned women taxi drivers from wearing "too-fancy" hairstyles. Drivers have already been ordered not to spit, eat or smoke in cabs while they drive.

Beijing's long-suffering taxi-drivers are in the cross-hairs once again -- with shaved heads to be banned from the driving seat ahead of next year's Beijing Olympics
