EXCITING NEW TAXI TRADE POLITICAL GROUP : DADS DEFENDING DAUGHTERS (3D)

DADS DEFENDING DAUGHTERS IS A STRANGE NAME FOR A POLITICAL GROUP

Especially since it has female members, fathers without daughters, people without children, and a whole diversity of life.


3D came to life through two Licensed London Taxi Driving Grandfathers, who had five daughters. Their concern was for the welfare of their loved ones travelling in cabs.
A fight against a government supported conglomerate 'Uber', brought to light the danger of a poorly regulated system, where rape, sexual assault and physical assaults had gone through the roof, at the behest of those who stand to gain financially from deregulation.

We live on the edge of Greater London, were Private Hire is more prevalent than Black Taxis.
The more we looked into the poorly regulated system, the more we knew we had no choice but to take the fight to the enemy. A powerful enemy, worth billions of dollars, with many governments in their pockets.


It is our opinion that the general public are our strength.
Why would they care about cab law, meters, plying for hire, or even hire and reward insurance?
But like my co conspirator and myself, they do care greatly about the safety and wellbeing of their loved ones.
We are fathers first - taxi drivers second.
