A collaborative enforcement operation by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and South Wales Police Commercial Vehicle Unit (CVU) in Cardiff has led to the discovery of multiple non-compliant taxis and Public Service Vehicles (PSVs).

According to a DVSA Enforcement spokesperson, the operation uncovered vehicles with serious safety defects, including issues with tyres, seatbelts, and passenger doors.

Additionally, a tachograph infringement was identified, involving a failure to keep records of other work. As a result, Prohibition Notices (PG9s) and Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) were issued to address these violations.

This initiative highlights the ongoing efforts to ensure vehicle safety and compliance on the roads.

A DVSA Enforcement spokesperson said via social media: “Partnership working with South Wales Police CVU in Cardiff.

“Dangerous taxis and PSVs dealt with amongst the compliant. Defects included tyres, seatbelts and passenger doors. Tachograph infringement of failing to keep a record of other work also discovered.

“PG9s and FPNs (Fixed Penalty Notices) issued.”
