Police in Bradford are clamping down on taxi drivers operating in unsafe vehicles as part of a new initiative.
Officers stopped 22 cabs over the past week which resulted in six drivers being issued notices to bring their vehicles up to code and provide peace of mind for passengers jumping in a taxi in the coming days, The Telegraph & Argus reports.
With Christmas fast-approaching, many people will be on nights out to celebrate the festivities and having a reliable taxi is one thing that passengers depend upon at the very least.
The police in south Bradford have acknowledged this service and launched this scheme in the build-up to the busy holiday period.
Inspector Alan Rhees-Cooper, from the NPT, told the news provider: “They [passengers] have got to feel safe in their taxis and we need to make sure that the conditions of their licence comply with certain conditions. It is good news this time compared with previous occasions.”
