Yellow Cab Trace

Use your notebook to mark the location of the yellow cab trace. Speak to the cabbie for the victim’s last movements.

Note: If you do not go immediately to the yellow cab (if you respond to a street crime, for example), or if you let your partner drive (fast travel) instead of driving to the next location yourself, you may experience a common bug where the cab does not appear where it should on your map. If this happens, you can find the cab on Garland Ave. just south of the Garland Ave. & 7th street intersection.
