      D.C. officials are hoping to reduce heavy late-night traffic in Adams Morgan.

      The D.C. Council has passed an emergency bill that requires taxis to pick up riders at a central location in the busy neighborhood rather than cruising the streets to find passengers.

      At a public hearing in January, local business owners urged the council to pass the bill before summer, citing heavy congestion along 18th Street northwest.

      Officials estimate that during peak late-night hours, 80 percent of the traffic in Adams Morgan comes from cruising taxicabs.
