Taxi Meters, Illegal?

We’ve heard about this and today got initiated.
Is it illegal that taxi meters can spin about as fast as a slot machine?
Today, took a usual $1.50 ride before getting to destination it was way over $2.40 so knowing the final tab was going to be far over $4 got out and walked.
Gave the driver $2 calling him a “ladron!!” (thief) and told him his meter was spinning too fast.

Yellow beater car with broken taxi light on front roof.
We usually tip well but it’s different now.
I’d turn him into EMOV but it’s too big a hassle.
Watch the meters everyone.
