In a disastrous day of enforcement checks for the taxi and minicab sector in Liverpool, ALL vehicles stopped displayed defects, with one so bad the cab must now be scrapped.

The operation checking licensed vehicles took place on Thursday 8 December and involved Liverpool City Council (LCC) Licensing and Merseyside Police officers.

Numerous taxis and private hire vehicles (PHVs) didn’t pass roadside checks and were handed suspension notices.

A Merseyside Road Policing Unit spokesperson said: “Operation Bikes working in conjunction with Liverpool City Council Licensing to check hackney cabs and private hire vehicles are safe and operating correctly.

“Unfortunately after thorough inspections all the licensed vehicles stopped so far have defects... one to the extent it will now be scrapped!”
