Loughborough cabbies in cross-border protest

Loughborough taxi drivers staged a go-slow yesterday in protest at the lack of legislation surrounding cross-border hiring.

Approximately 80 cabbies crawled through Loughborough town centre, angered that vehicles licensed as far away as Wolverhampton are entering into the area and picking up fares.

The irate cabbies have also raised concerns over safety as different regulators have varying safety standards.

The taxi drivers have joined with other taxi drivers and representatives across the country in demanding a change to the current legislation on cross-border hiring.

The Leicester Mercury reported that the local council's Ken Pacey said the following: 

“We’re aware of the taxi demonstration in response to the issue of cross-border hiring and we’re sympathetic to local hackney carriage drivers about this issue."
