Twelve taxi and private hire drivers caught out in 35 minutes by Bristol compliance team

It's been revealed that the taxi and private hire compliance team in Bristol and South Gloucestershire caught twelve drivers breaching regulation or breaking the law in a 35 minute spell.

The checks, which took place on Friday 6 September on the A4 Bath Road, Bristol, revealed that a number of drivers failed to wear or display their badge, two drivers were reported to their licensing authority for not displaying their plates and another two drivers did not have their badges with them at all. 

During that period one member of the public was also caught, driving through a bus lane and was also found not to be wearing their seat-belt and was subsequently fined. 

PC Quinton, police Taxi Compliance Officer for Bristol and South Gloucestershire, said: “We have high standards in Bristol and South Glos, and it’s disappointing that on this occasion many drivers haven’t got the basics right, which is a shame because it detracts from the good service that our drivers give the public.”
