Police taxi and minicab operation delivers “some unfortunate results” in Birmingham



A police operation in Birmingham checked 33 taxi and private hire vehicles which delivered “some unfortunate results” according the police sources.


Of the 33 vehicles checked, enforcement officers found bumpers half hanging off, tyres below the minimum legal limit, vehicle indicators (side repeaters) not working and a broken suspension system.

The operation was conducted by Birmingham City Council, West Midlands Police and DVSA Enforcement.


In photos posted by the West Midlands Police Private Hire and Taxi Enforcement Officer, one bumper was shown to have been screwed on. Another was hanging off on the front driver's side.
