Delia Sarracino and Joyace Kizuka stood on the corner of Cesar Chavez Avenue and Soto Street for 45 minutes Saturday waving and jumping as they tried to hail a taxi. After nine passed, with the drivers glancing at the pair suspiciously, a white van with taxi markings pulled over at the Los Angeles intersection. Across the street, state Department of Transportation Officer Jo Ann Frampton radioed to reserve police Officer John Hynes, "We have a nibble, stand by." "Are you a taxicab?"
