Cardiff council in taxi u-turn

10 Nov 2018



It has been revealed in Wales Online that Cardiff council have made a u-turn in allowing taxis to have tinted windows.


Previously, in July,  the council's Public Protection Committee had initiallyvoted to allow taxis in Cardiff to have tinted glass. 


However, upon being informed that there could be a legal challenge against them, the committee decided to reverse their decision.


Current regulations  dictate that windscreens must allow at least 75 per cent of light to pass through, with all other windows allowing 70 per cent. 


The u-turn means that some cabbies may have to pay up to £2,000 to replace tinted glass on new vehicles to comply with the current regulations.
