Happy New Year?

Happy New Year?

I don’t think 2014 will be a happy year for full time taxi drivers, it could be a costly/steep learning curve as fines and new regulations take hold.

Hopefully the end result will be a better, more lucrative industry, with less fly by nights around, although I don’t think we’ll feel as “free” knowing if we don’t play by the rules we’ll be likely to be penalised.

    red dennis the rental market attracts the vermin, who know what they can get away with. its best for us full time irish drivers that the rental market is scrapped.
    taxi rental depots might sound good, but the cost will be passed on to us.

    Ben the ” taxi depot” for taxi rentals should be a “private venture” which the NTA would issue a “licence ” to operate . It’s operator would be open to strict inspections from both the NTA and revenue. I agree the rental sector is been “hijacked” by corrupt individuals , but there are a lot of genuine renters out there that cannot survive without renting. I for one would rather pay a bit extra in my yearly “taxi licence fee” to fund ” full time inspectors” that would operate 24×7 on the ground in every city nationwide . If there was a policy of one plate per person and one driver per taxi with I.D sealed on dashboard that couldn’t be tampered with these “inspectors” would be money well spent .

    red dennis I like the idea of one plate per person, and one driver per taxi, but will we ever see that. I don’t think Alan Kelly would have the balls to go there. I do agree that some drivers have to rent, due to finance problems etc. I feel sorry for these drivers as they are victims of a monster created by nta, but unless the rental market is cleansed completely, I will still want it abolished. I see people in my own area with prayers on the dash, instead of psv. what does that tell you.

    Frank Fahey, when he was in office called for the abolition of the rental market at the time, but members of this forum opposed it

    Ben you only have one tv licence, one dog licence, the same should be done with taxi licence. Greed is the driving force behind these multiple plate holders . Also having only one driver per taxi means more rank space will be available , as when that taxi finishes shift nobody can hop into it to replace other driver. It’s these issues our reps whoever they are should be dealing with .
