Councils throughout Essex are running similar schemes. 

Mutual respect

Just as taxi and private hire drivers should show respect to you, you  should show respect to them by:

  • being in a fit state to travel (the driver may refuse to take you)
  • having sufficient means to pay for the journey
  • securing yourself and any child with the seat belts provided
  • not smoking in their vehicle

Taxi and private hire drivers may legitimately use CCTV in order to reduce crime and disorder.

Your safety

All taxi and private hire drivers and their vehicles must be licensed by  the local Council.  The Council will undertake safety checks before issuing the licence.  In the Maldon District, licensed vehicles will have front and back plates as well as stickers on the side with the Maldon District Council logo.   Drivers should also have their badges on display.
