Letter to Taxi Leaks : From Lenny Etherige
Has the Government invested £300m in Geely, without checking if drivers are being used as guinea pigs?
If the new eTaxi has been deemed safe;
60 hours per week sitting on batteries.
We are all in favour of clean air. But on a personal note, I don't wish to swap COPD for Cancer. If the new eTaxi is safe; we need a signed recommendation that our families have a legal recourse.
Comment From The GMB :
We are preparing a formal letter to London Electric Taxi & the Secretary of State as they have ignored our informal requests. (Something to hide???)
TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT:
The question needs to be asked ;
Why haven't our representative orgs and unions checked this massive driver health issue out?
Why haven't they confronted TfL or the manufacturers?
Taxi Leaks has been on about this problem since electric vehicle were first mentioned.
Our concerns have consistently fallen on death ears and we've never had one sensible reply from either our orgs or TfL.
We did manage to get a sentence once (off the record in a Taxi Drivers Forum) from one of the manufacturers. When asked about the dangers from electro magnetic particle radiation, they replied;
"It will probably be OK"
