  1. Crackdown on illegal cab drivers
    Illegal minicab drivers caught touting for business are to have their fingerprints and DNA recorded by police in a bid to crack down on sex attacks, ministers said today.
    From Monday, taxi touting becomes a recordable offence and drivers arrested by police will have their details entered on the national criminal database.
    Police in London alone have recorded 86 rapes in the last two years by illegal minicab drivers and 167 sexual assaults last year.
    Ministers said the move would also help police catch illegal drivers who continually flout the law even if they move between different towns and cities.
    Unlicensed drivers are often uninsured with large numbers of previous criminal convictions, they added.
    Drivers will have to be caught touting – or actually approaching customers – to commit the new recordable offence.
    ‘Menace to public’
    Home Office minister Hazel Blears said: “Unlicensed minicab drivers are a menace to the public, particularly women.

  2. During a recent crackdown od illegal taxis and private hire cars on 23 Dec 2014 , according to the the Huddersfield Examiner Seven taxis were taken off the roads in a crackdown in Huddersfield.

    And two of them were so bad that police deemed them unfit to be on the road.

    Police and Kirklees Council officials took prompt action when they carried out spot checks on “Mad Friday” – one of the busiest nights of the year for cabbies.

    The examiner reported that More than 40 taxis and private hire vehicles were checked and many of the drivers were given penalty fines.

    And police pledged that there would be more checks to ensure the safety of road users.

    The enforcement exercise took place in Queensgate last Friday, with officials taking cars into the Queensgate Market Hall underground loading area for spot checks.

    Officers from the council’s licensing department teamed up with police, Revenue & Customs officers and the Vehicle Operators Standard Agency (VOSA) to carry out vehicle checks on private cars, taxis and private hire vehicles. They stopped 70 vehicles.

    They checked 46 taxis and private hire vehicles to make sure they were appropriately licensed and complied with necessary safety requirements.

    Of the 24 private cars inspected the police issued eight fixed penalty notices, two for failure to wear seat belts and six for light defects. One driver also had his vehicle issued with an immediate prohibition notice from VOSA. Two community resolutions orders were also issued to private individuals for possession of cannabis.

    Of the 46 taxis and private hire vehicles inspected, 10 were issued with rectifications notices for matters including damaged body work, failures to have the correct livery and signage on their vehicles and failure to carry fire extinguishers.

    Seven private hire vehicles were issued with immediate suspensions on the night with two also attracting an immediate prohibition order from VOSA, as the vehicles were not fit to be on the road.

    One had two bald tyres and a light defect.

    The second vehicle was removed from the hall on a recovery truck. The drivers of the vehicles will now face a hearing before the councils Regulatory Panel to explain why they had allowed their vehicle to fall in to such disrepair.

    Insp Tim Holland, of Kirklees Police, said: “The results from the operation are encouraging and should go some way to reassure the public that taxis and private hires in Kirklees are generally fit for purpose and most importantly safe.

    “We will continue to work in partnership with our colleagues from the council, VOSA and HMRC to carry out similar activity in the future. This was also a great opportunity for Special Police Constables to participate in an important public safety exercise which is an integral role in local policing”.

    Clr Mumtaz Hussain, who chairs Kirklees Licensing & Safety Committee said: “The council is determined to ensure that our licensed taxis and private hire vehicles and drivers comply fully with the requirements of the law and of their licences, so as to deliver a safe transport service to the residents and businesses of Kirklees.

    “Enforcement operations of this type, carried out in partnership with the police, help us to identify potential safety risks and deal with them.” Source http://www.Examiner.co.uk

  3. As a parent you feel an overarching need to give your children the best of the best, especially when they have done something to be proud of such as finishing school. With most parents footing the bill for dresses, suits, jewellery and the evening meal school proms can get expensive, especially when arranging the limos.

    Parents of P7 pupils at Quarryhill Primary School in Aberdeen paid £50 each for their child to ride in a limo to prom, parting with their hard earned cash to make their child’s day a special one. With the limo not showing up whatsoever you can imagine the frustration that these mums and dads felt, going straight to the limo company for some answers.

    Failing to even get hold of the gentlemen they booked the vehicle through it quickly became apparent that they had been done over, with the limo company proving to not only have let them down but to not even exist.

    Hollywood limos to the rescue

    News of this let down inevitably made its way through Dundee with fellow parents and business owners disgusted by the regretful ordeal. Being the limo industry’s busiest day of the year the parents found it impossible to find a replacement, however one operator, Hollywood Limos, were extremely sympathetic.

    Veronica Cook, managing director of Hollywood Limos, said she ‘could just see their poor wee faces when they found out and couldn’t have that’.

    Deciding to send one of their limos the company helped claw back a bit of luxury for the students, allowing them to experience

    “I could only send a limo for photographs but if I could have done more I would have.”

  4. Taxi safety

    Travelling by taxi is generally very safe, but it is important to make sure the vehicle is licensed and to take sensible precautions.

    Making sure your taxi or private hire vehicle is legal
    An unlicensed taxi is operating illegally and has not gone through the checks on drivers and vehicles that licensing authorities enforce.

    Don’t use a taxi if:

    the driver appears to be under the influence of alcohol
    the driver does not seem to know the local area
    the vehicle seems to be too old for use as a cab
    the vehicle is in a state of disrepair
    the vehicle is not displaying taxi plates
    Travel tips
    try to pre-book at busy times or if you have special requirements
    check the taxi is displaying proper licence plates and a roof sign
    if you have booked a taxi, confirm it is for you by checking the driver knows your name and destination
    ask how much the fare will be and if possible, have the correct money ready
    if there is a meter, check what the minimum fare is and make sure the meter has been reset to this amount
    check that the driver is displaying an ID badge
    wear your seatbelt
    Don’t:

    distract the driver
    drink alcohol
    get in or out of the taxi while it’s moving
    drop litter
