TfL COs Out In Force To Put Stops On Taxis Without (Or The Wrong) Credit Card Stickers.

Level playing field my arse ...

TfL's COs were out in force toda putting stops on Taxis for having none or the wrong type of Credit Card stickers.

Shame that the army of TfL COs developed blind eye and blinkered syndrome and just ignored the scab fest on the opposite side of the road. 

Would it not have been a show of goodwill towards the trade to have turned up with boxes of stickers, giving them out to drivers who didn't have them on.

Why are they treating this as such a heinous crime. 

This is just typical of the bias and woeful incompudance shown towards our trade by managers at TfLTPH.

When asked by a driver why they were being so forceful, a CO said: 
"we are only acting under orders"

Whilst private hire  murders and rapists are allowed to keep their TfL licenses, COs are under orders to take Taxis off the road for not having or displaying the wrong type of Credit Card stickers.

the only way you'll get some action, is by having a few hundred cabs with banners, circling the homes of the tfl higher-archy, at 3am in the morning,

they won't like it up them

No doubt they're doing this because we've got it in for them and they're just being bloody minded!
Well I for one won't be put off by their childish antics. I'll be at every protest directed at them until we get justice via a judicial revue!

dont blame it all on TFL the LTDA are the main culprits for signing up to this, how can you accept a mandate that is detrimental, to your members and the whole of the cab trade, and also the other orgs following like lemmings. this should never had been accepted in the presant format, ie machines in the back

Maybe the rape stats is a big problem to TFL & the whole credit card debacle is just to take our eye off the ball the way I see it credit card is is just one nail in uber coffin,

the cab I rent has all of this crap fitted, but can someone please tell me, do I have to use it, or at the moment, can I carry on using my own device?

It is no surprise as they have hired Ubend drivers as compliance officers.
This was exposed on twitter and shows a TFL marked compliance car and a PHV on the same drive parked outside his or her house.
I have tweeted TFL taxi and PH, asked them why a PHV licence holder can be a compliance officer but a Licenced London cabbie has to hand in his bill and badge.

To date I have received NO reply.
This stinks,
this needs following up!
