A ‘number’ of taxi and private hire vehicle (PHV) drivers were reported in Liverpool after enforcement officers ran their latest checks on licensed vehicles in the lead up to the festive period.

The operation took place on 5 December involving Liverpool City Council (LCC) Licensing and Merseyside Police officers.

Numerous taxis and PHVs didn’t pass roadside checks and were handed suspension notices.

LCC Licensing shared one image on social media of a tyre believed to have been found on a licensed taxi. The tyre were so heavily worn that the grip marks had become slick and the white cords beneath the rubber had been exposed.

The driver was reported for the offence.

A LCC Licensing spokesperson said via social media: “Licensing Officers have been working with colleagues from the Roads Policing Unit this morning as part of their Xmas drink/drug drive campaign.

“Licensed vehicles were checked, and a number of defects and suspension notices issued inc one for the below tyre - driver reported.”
