Five taxis issued with fines in Rossendale enforcement operation
1:38pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
A TAXI enforcement operation in Rossendale saw five cars issued with notices for faults and defects.
Operation Maestro, a joint scheme between Rossendale Council’s licensing unit, Lancashire police and the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA), inspected seven cars on Friday evening.
VOSA served two vehicles with suspended or delayed prohibition notices for faults such as loose batteries, damaged bodywork, defective steering rack gaiters and air bag faults.
Council officers found damaged front bumpers, mirror casings, and side lights, resulting in the issue of three council defect notices. They also found one driver without a valid hackney carriage driver licence and one driver who was not displaying his licence badge as required.
A similar operation in March this year saw five similar notices issued while last September four vehicles were ordered to make improvements.
