Enforcement operation

A total of 29 hackney carriages/private-hire vehicles were stopped and inspected in the Egham and Virginia Water area during another successful joint taxi-enforcement operation between Transport for London (TfL) and Runnymede Borough Council.

This was the third action day of 2017 and more are planned next year.

Three TfL officers and two Runnymede officers worked together on Wednesday, 25 October, and a total of 29 hackney carriages/private-hire vehicles were stopped and inspected in the Egham and Virginia Water area .

Of these, nine were licensed by Runnymede, 19 by TfL, and one by Windsor and Maidenhead.

TfL officers suspended three of their vehicle licences immediately for:

    tyre condition
    illegal livery on the vehicle
    illegal vehicle modification

In addition two TfL drivers were reported for failing to wear their driver's badge.

Runnymede licensing officers had to ask one driver to get their car cleaned, one to replace a first-aid kit, and another to attend the Civic Centre to replace a non-standard plate.

Runnymede Borough Council sets high standards for licensed drivers and vehicles so it is important they know they will be held to account if these are not met.
