abandon distinction between hackney cabs and private hire

Comment 23rd July 2010

The law distinguishes between Hackney Cabs and Private hire taxi vehicles due to a long history.

Now that rates of carriage are the same, and Sat Nav and mobile phones are universally used by both types of vehicle there is no need for any licencing distinction.

Solution

Notice should be given that in 7 years time that Hackney Carriage  licences will be abandoned and all taxis will trade equally.

this will allow there to be a steady run down of the value placed on Hackney licences .

Why does this matter?

There is unnessary agrivation between the two groups of licenced taxis that confuses the public and creates work for Councils and Police.
