A document from Camden's Lawyers' to the LTDA re: Tottenham Court Road taxi exclusion, made grave reading.
Camden did consider the inclusion of taxis in their redevelopment scheme, but research data showed taxis as the main cause of serious accidents in the area. When the findings were challenged, Camden produced evidence that they had exhausted all avenues and could not locate data that identified taxis from PH.
So, as of now, we are considered the most dangerous vehicle on the road- because of THEM!
Whether Camden wanted us or not isn't relevant, at least let us know the real reason
I cannot stress enough the importance of this. Years of TFL blurring the boundaries between taxis and PH; actively recruiting staff to big up so called similarities (as opposed to highlighting differences) has left the trade wide open to assault.
We remain the only legitimate alternative to the minicab swamp that swills around us, and the public NEED to know that there is an option.
First and foremost, we should to be recognised by officialdom for what we are, and that is;
THE SAFEST TRANSPORT CHOICE IN LONDON.
Editorial Comment :
So, for all the councillors, planners and consultants involved with and on behalf of Camden Borough Council.
This is a highly regulated, extremely safe, fully wheelchair accessible Licensed London Taxi....
And these are not.....
