Beck taxi Toronto

Somehow Beck Taxi got this for its Google listing

Toronto's most prominent cab company, Beck Taxi, isn't having the best year (or few years, to be more accurate). While its bright orange cars are easy to spot on Toronto streets, many use their smartphones to secure an Uber instead of hailing a car curb-side.

This ride-sharing-related beef hit a fever pitch in December when many Beck Taxi drivers participated in the hours-long protest, which shut down parts of Queen Street.

And to add to its 6ix-related woes, now when you Google Beck Taxi (at least on Safari), as Redditor JoanOfArctic pointed out, a photo of a car crash pops up.

Google seems to determine which photos populate this search field, but it seems like an unfortunate coincidence that this is the one that pops up for Beck.
