The key points worrying Uber before the London court case

Image
via taxi-point https://ift.tt/2LKo5Ho It is less than two weeks to go before Uber clashes with regulator Transport for London in a bid to win back it’s operators licence in the capital. How confident should the taxi and private hire industry be that Uber won’t overturn the regulators decision made back in September 2017? In an ongoing poll run by TaxiPoint on Twitter the industry is split in regards to which way they think the ruling will go. As it stands 55% of those who took part think Uber will win in court. We ask what will Uber be concerned about going into Westminster magistrates court on 25th June? A spokesperson from the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association told TaxiPoint that drivers should be highlighting the following to the media and public when asked: 1. The data hack and cover up of 2.7 million UK Uber users 2. Workers rights 3. Brighton & Hove City Council decision to not renew Uber’s licence. 4. £20 million VAT Tax avoidance 5.

LTDA: “What have minicabs got against safety?”

Image
via taxi-point https://ift.tt/2y39BAh It seems that every time TfL wants to improve the safety of passengers, the minicab industry opposition reaches fever pitch.
 Some people reading this might think it’s a bit rich for a taxi driver to moan about whingers, and in another situation they could have a point. But we have never complained about safety, only the unfairness of the current situation and the fact that while we are the most thoroughly trained and tested taxi industry in the world, minicabs and their operators are effectively allowed to operate like modern day cowboys, playing fast and loose with the rules. Safety is paramount, but not if you work in the minicab trade it seems. Instead, it’s look after number one. As I’m sure you know, TfL is consulting on plans to tighten up the rules for private hire. Proposals include advanced driving tests, improved safety signage and much more.
But “yah, boo, sucks” has been the predictable response from the minicab trade and Simon Rush, P…
