Strange design

What's up with those taxis? This is New York City; how can the driver be exposed to the elements at all times? It rains; it snows; it sleets; there are really hot sunny summer days. I just don't understand it. Even in the best climate, the weather isn't always great, so how could a taxi like that ever make any sense?
