New Rotherham taxi regulations approved

ROTHERHAM’S new stringent taxi licensing policy has been formally approved.

Commissioner Mary Ney agreed the new rules — including CCTV in all cabs — on Tuesday.

The policy’s measures set high standards for the fitness of drivers and the condition of vehicles.

Ms Ney said: “Public confidence and safety is at the heart of our new policy.  

“We need to enforce robust and high standards to make sure people feel safe using local taxis, and to ultimately re-build trust and confidence in this important service.”

Each driver will be given training on spotting the signs of child sexual exploitation and raising concerns.

Further meetings will be held with the taxi trade to discuss implementing the new measures.
