Hertfordshire taxi drivers reminded they MUST NOT refuse short trips unless they have a valid reason

Taxi drivers in Herefordshire have been reminded that they must not refuse short trips unless they have a valid reason.

This is because rejecting short journeys could put vulnerable people in danger, especially at night.

The council's licensing team has issued a warning to all taxi and private hire drivers that they could face enforcement action if they break the law. The law states that drivers can only refuse a fare if they have a reasonable excuse, such as being unwell, having a prior booking, or fearing for their safety.

Drivers who refuse short trips without good cause could be fined up to £1,000 or have their licence suspended or revoked.
