NEW YORK - New York City's taxi regulators are planning a new dress code for cab drivers that requires them to "present a professional appearance."

The Taxi and Limousine Commission says the new dress code is an attempt to reinforce and clarify standards, but admits they will be hard to enforce.

The dress code, which is expected to be approved next month, bans tube shirts, tank tops and bathing trunks.
