MILTON KEYNES CITY TAXIS SAFETY SPOT CHECK FAILURES

Taxi spot check in Milton Keynes found ‘majority’ had defects

10:55Thursday 04 February 2016

Spot checks on city taxis revealed more than half the vehicles had defects so serious that they were not fit to be on the road, the Citizen can reveal.

The faults found included defective tyres, dodgy lights, leaking oil and even a loose passenger door.

The checks, carried out by police and council licensing officers last Wednesday, went under the code name of Operation Charlie.

Some 26 private hire vehicles and Hackney carriages were stopped as they drove about the roads of Milton Keynes.

Fourteen had a full mechanical examination at the council’s testing centre – and serious defects were found on all of them.

“They were immediately suspended from being used as private hire vehicles until the defects were rectified,” said a council spokesman.

One cab, licensed by South Northants District Council but driving in MK, was found to have 10 separate defects.

The council said the aim of the operation was to “proactively tackle” vehicle defects found among taxis in the city.

But it seems even police were surprised at the sheer volume of faults uncovered.

PS Simon Hills from the Roads Policing Unit said: “We are disappointed that the majority of private hire vehicles were carrying defects so serious the vehicles were suspended from being used in the private hire trade.

“It is vital that people have absolute confidence in the safety of private hire vehicles and Hackney taxis.”

Councillor Catriona Morris is chairman of the council’s Regulatory and Licensing Committees.

She said: “These routine council operations, in partnership with Thames Valley Police, are to ensure the safety of residents and visitors to Milton Keynes.”

Addison Lee's plan to operate ‘executive’ minicabs with tinted windows at Luton Airport blocked by council

PLANS to operate tinted window minicabs like limousines from Luton Airport have been dealt a blow by the council.

Addison Lee, who recently won the contract to operate their vans and cars from the airport, had wanted to introduce a fleet of 30 ‘executive vehicles’ which featured tinted windows and would be exempt from the display of licence plates identifying them as private hire. But Luton Borough Council’s licensing panel rejected the move on Monday. It’s a big blow for both Addison Lee, who have said they are exploring an appeal.

Give them an inch and they want a yard!
Luton Airport had consistently said that their decision to replace the Luton Hackney Carriage Association with Addison Lee was so that passengers could see an ‘improved fleet of vehicles’.
Although Addison Lee has said service levels have already gone up, they conceded the council’s decision not to allow the executive fleet was ‘saddening’.

Michael Galvin, head of regulatory affairs with Addison Lee, told Luton on Sunday: “I was more sad than angry at the decision. The case we put to the licensing panel was open and honest and presented in good faith, and we felt we had addressed any issues. The thought of going to appeal is not something we usually like doing, but we are exploring that process.”

A spokesman for Luton Borough Council said: “The application to relax the conditions in the Private Hire Operators Licence which would allow the company to operate vehicles with tinted windows and which did not display the licence plate and standard signage was refused.

“Whilst there is no express definition of the term ‘Executive Licence’ the Panel did not consider Addison Lee’s operation to fall within such a category.

“The Panel recognises that certain private hire operators undertake contracts which are more akin to a chauffeur driven car, often using prestige vehicles, being contracted to a specific customer or company and often at the disposal of the hirer for extended periods rather than for single journeys.

“The Panel did not consider Addison Lee’s operation to differ significantly from an ordinary private hire service and serves the general public using the airport rather than any exclusive or separately identifiable customer base.

“Given the similarity with other private hire operators and also to the previous hackney carriage provision at the airport, there was no reason to justify departure from the Council’s policy requiring the grant of a licence with standard operator conditions.

“The standard conditions are imposed for the purpose of protecting customers and the wider public who come into contact with private hire vehicles.

"Accordingly, the application to exempt the operator from the standard is refused and the standard conditions will remain on the licence previously issued".

MANDATE ON CREDIT CARDS, Deadline Approaches And Its All Gone A Bit Quiet...by Jim Thomas.


Back in February this year, the chair of the London Cab Drivers Club (LCDC) Grant Davis made a very bold statement, which was published in their in house newspaper, the Badge. 

Mr Davis said:
Whilst the trade is united in accepting the need for us to take credit cards, there is some disunity as to how this strategy will be implemented.

The majority of taxi drivers who already take credit cards and the app companies, who already process cards, are very concerned with TfL proposals for fixed units tied to the metre.

Unfortunately, at the meetings the LTDA is the only Org in favour of this proposal (it's a done deal isn't it Steve-JT). 
Let me make it clear, the LCDC will in no way be dictated to by TfL, yet again, as to what we can and cannot do in this issue.

To implement more costs which include brackets, electrical work connecting the metre, etc. at a time when the trade is fighting for its life is utter madness.

If need be, the LCDC are prepared, with others, to instigate legal action if they try to go ahead and impose this on us.

Grant Davis 

Bold words then, but nothing since. 

On the London Taxi Drivers Forum, many drivers are giving their unqualified verdict that TfL can't do this, can't do that, well TfL are going to do just that!

We've been informed on Twitter (by TfL @TfLTPH) that the mandate is perfectly legal because Leon Daniels has signed off the following London Cab Order regarding the acceptance of Credit/debit cards.

As the deadline approaches, not a word from the LCDC, RMT, Unite, UCG. 
The LTDA have gone on record saying nothing can be done as it is a "done deal".

• And it's not just this one issue !
• No landline for Uber bookings !
• No Uber bookings 
• We've had Leon Daniels' Ubergate Email's !
• Operation no one !
• Then Uber in court saying on oath, the company doesn't take bookings, bookings are taken by drivers in car !
• To top this, the sexual assaults and rape statistics were dumbed down on the LTDA AdVan, to appease TfL.
• And now one this below !


SOMEONE REMIND ME AGAIN, WHAT IS IT YOUR REPRESENTATIVE ORGS DO FOR THE MONEY YOU PAY THEM?

MILTON KEYNES TAXI CHECKS

Spot checks on city taxis revealed more than half the vehicles had defects so serious that they were not fit to be on the road, the Citizen can reveal.

The faults found included defective tyres, dodgy lights, leaking oil and even a loose passenger door.

The checks, carried out by police and council licensing officers last Wednesday, went under the code name of Operation Charlie.

Some 26 private hire vehicles and Hackney carriages were stopped as they drove about the roads of Milton Keynes.

Fourteen had a full mechanical examination at the council’s testing centre – and serious defects were found on all of them.

“They were immediately suspended from being used as private hire vehicles until the defects were rectified,” said a council spokesman.

One cab, licensed by South Northants District Council but driving in MK, was found to have 10 separate defects.

The council said the aim of the operation was to “proactively tackle” vehicle defects found among taxis in the city.

But it seems even police were surprised at the sheer volume of faults uncovered.

PS Simon Hills from the Roads Policing Unit said: “We are disappointed that the majority of private hire vehicles were carrying defects so serious the vehicles were suspended from being used in the private hire trade.

“It is vital that people have absolute confidence in the safety of private hire vehicles and Hackney taxis.”

Councillor Catriona Morris is chairman of the council’s Regulatory and Licensing Committees.

She said: “These routine council operations, in partnership with Thames Valley Police, are to ensure the safety of residents and visitors to Milton Keynes.”

I wouldnt doubt it, if they were sharing and giving their cab to their un-licensed family members or friends to go out and earn and sit on the ranks

Might be worth checking the paperwork of some of the drivers to see if they are eligible to be here.
