Lady (needs a) Cab Driver

How would I find a really good car or taxi service in Austin, Texas? My wife had a bad experience and now refuses to take cabs--especially if its late at night or early in the morning. Her company pays for them, but she is afraid of bad driving and threatening individuals that have made her feel unsafe. I'd like a way to find a nice, safe, reliable driver. If there is someone you recommend, that would be good, too. Also, any tips on verifying the safety and legitimacy of such a person would be very helpful.

What's the deal with the "D" on a "wide load" sign?

A "wide load" vehicle on the highway seems to always have a sign on the back to indicate that it's a "wide load", but the sign doesn't say "wide load". Instead, it has the letter "D" in the middle of it, and red/white vertical bars. Why a "D"? What does the "D" stand for? Why not just have the sign say "WIDE LOAD"? I'm in Canada, if this is something that'd be different in other countries.
