77 tickets issued over two nights during OPERATION YELLOW in Liverpool for vehicles parked illegally
Liverpool City Council's licensing team hit the streets to ticket any car users who were parked illegally across the city's hackney carriage ranks.
Over two separate nights, the licensing team slapped parking tickets on a total of 77 private vehicles which were left on taxi stands.
During the first night of 14 April, 31 vehicles were recorded for the illegal practice of parking on an active taxi stand in a crackdown dubbed "Operation Yellow".
On the second night, Liverpool City Council's licensing team used social media to highlight a further 46 vehicles parked on the ranks.
Only public hire taxis are permitted to park on taxi ranks. The only exception to that rule applies to council/government department vehicles in pursuance of statutory duties, emergency services (fire, police, ambulance and customs) and statutory undertaking vehicles (Networks, Water, BT, and so on).
Any other vehicles will be considered a breech of Contravention code 45 and will be issued a ticket.
