CHRISTMAS ‘SWOOPS’: Ribble Valley taxi enforcement plan more operations to find unroadworthy cabs

Taxi enforcement officers at Ribble Valley Borough Council joined forces with the police and Vehicle and Operator Services Agency in a swoop on potentially unroadworthy vehicles.

Further taxi ‘swoops’ across Ribble Valley are also on the cards over the coming weeks says council.

Of the eight vehicles inspected at sites around Clitheroe, five were found to be of the required standard.

Two vehicles were served with notices requiring work to be carried out within seven days and one was taken off the road pending an essential repair.

Ribble Valley Borough Council’s taxi enforcement officer, Carl Rung, said: “Maintaining a high standard of vehicles is something we take seriously and we carry out regular checks to ensure taxis and their drivers meet licensing requirements.

“This was a joint operation, where vehicles were subject to a rigorous inspection to ensure they were compliant with licence conditions.

“Although three vehicles were served with notices, we are delighted that most were of an excellent standard.”
