Inspection takes Clitheroe taxis off the streets

THIRTY vehicles have been targeted in a late night inspection of taxi ranks in Clitheroe.

Taxi enforcement officers at Ribble Valley Borough Council joined forces with police and vehicle and operation service agency to swoop on unroadworthy vehicles last week.

Of the 30 vehicles inspected 24 were found to be of the required standard. The drivers of two were served probation notices requiring them to withdraw their vehicles from operation immediately and four were served with advisory notices requiring work to be carried out on their vehicles within seven days.

Ribble Valley Borough Council’s taxi enforcement officer, Carl Rung said: “Maintaining a high standard of vehicles is something we take seriously and we carry out regular checks to ensure taxis and their drivers are meeting licensing requirements.”

If I had a tenner for every time I read a report in the LET about taxis being found faulty I could retire. Last week it was Burnley, This week it is Clitheroe, Next week it will be?????????? Will the the taxi operators never learn? Of course they won't. What they will do is like the Burnley Taxis boss did last week, is claim that the inspections were over the top.
