Drivers must ensure they adhere to parking regulations, especially when dealing with customer pick-ups and drop-offs. The incident serves as a reminder to all private hire drivers to exercise caution and follow local regulations to avoid penalties.

A Liverpool City Council Licensing spokesperson said: “The driver of a private hire vehicle who had stopped at traffic lights in a live lane of traffic to wait for a customer was issued with an Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) for obstruction.

"Please be mindful of where you park your vehicles while waiting for or when picking up your customers.”
