Al Roker has claimed a victory for black people everywhere who’ve ever struggled to catch a cab. NBC reports that as a result of the complaint the weatherman filed with the Taxi and Limousine Commission in November, the cab driver who bypassed him and his son in New York City one evening will now have to pay a fine of $500.

In late November, Roker took to Twitter to express his frustration as a black man trying to catch a taxi.

Less than two months later, Roker has received justice and the cab driver has been forced to pay for his ignorance. Interestingly, the commission says this incident was actually the driver’s second refusal violation. We bet he won’t get a third.
