Joint Stansted Airport operation targets private hire and licensed taxi drivers

Transport for London, Essex Police and Uttlesford Council target motorists 

A joint operation involving Essex Police, Transport for London and Uttlesford District Council at Stansted Airport saw taxis and private hire vehicles targeted as part of TfL’s Vision Zero approach. The London regulator checked a total of 46 private hire cars which found one minicab driver without a badge and another with no insurance documents. TfL also issued 12 advisory notices and deemed 10 vehicles as unfit according to Bishop’s Stortford Independent. Two taxis were also checked. One was found to be unfit. Anand Nandha, head of taxi and private hire compliance at TfL, said: “We regularly work in partnership with the police and local authorities to keep the public safe while travelling in taxis and minicabs. "Our compliance officers inspect licensed taxi and private hire drivers, vehicles and private hire operators in London to ensure they comply with relevant legislation and regulations. It's vital that all drivers follow the rules of the road as careless and dangerous behaviour puts themselves and others at risk. "Operations like this are part of our Vision Zero approach to eliminate death and serious injury from London’s roads.”
