FINED FOR OPERATING ILLEGALLY

Four taxi drivers have been found guilty at Bedford Magistrates’ Court of operating illegally. All had picked up fares in Bedford town centre despite driving private hire vehicles. This is in contravention of the terms of their licence, which requires their vehicles to be booked in advance, unlike Hackney carriages. All the drivers were charged and dealt with by the court individually. Despite holding a personal Hackney licence, Salmat Hussain, 49, of Laburnham Avenue, Bedford, used a private hire vehicle as a Hackney carriage.

He pleaded guilty and was fined 50 and ordered to pay 75 costs. The other three drivers, Daniel Grewal, 38, of Cromwell Road, Bedford, Mohammed Rafiq, 49, of Constable Hill, Bedford, and Safdar Hussain, 51, of Chesnut Avenue, all pleaded guilty to the same charge of using a private-hire taxi as a Hackney carriage. They additionally admitted not possessing a Hackney carriage licence and were each fined 100 and ordered to pay 75 costs.
