CONCERNS OVER TAXIS OPERATING
IN THE WRONG DISTRICT

In a response to allegations, made by Stamford-based taxi drivers, that taxis from outside the district were plying for trade, South Kesteven District Council and Lincolnshire Police launched a joint operation. This resulted in several vehicles and their drivers being subjected to spot checks. Around one hundred taxis are licensed by South Kesteven District Council to operate in the Stamford area. Their drivers are concerned that taxis licensed outside South Kesteven pose a potential threat to their business.

There are also worries that some of the vehicles may be unsafe. Council environmental health department licensing officer Pam Lahney, who teamed up with colleague Richard Etherton and police officers in Stamford, commented: “This is the first time we’ve worked in this way with the police. It was extremely useful. The police stopped the cars for us and we checked the drivers’ details while the police carried out standard vehicle inspections.” The operation failed to detect any major offences, with Pam Lahney reporting that: “It was pleasing to note that only minor infringements were found and these are being dealt with accordingly.”
