Name & Shame! Parking on Taxi Ranks.

Taxi drivers in Norwich are sick of the limited taxi rank space within the city, taxi numbers are at an all time high & growing but what is not helping is the illegal parking on taxi ranks. In this weeks taxi news for Norwich we will be posting photos of vehicles parked on our ranks & updating this thread each time we receive a new photo. With each new photo maybe it will put pressure on the authorities to do something about it, if possible put the time & date on when taking the photo.

  1. It’s seems to me that the council needs to address this matter and get more parking attendants to patrol our ranks.

  2. The demise of the taxi marshals and the way in which it was achieved must go down in history as one of the Norwich Hackney Drivers Greatest achievments.It has brought about a togetherness of drivers that has,nt been seen for years.I recently published a newsletter with the intention of getting the drivers back together and joining the NHDA
    Im sure you will agree with me sticking together like we did over the charging of the public to get into our cabs was a nice feeling.
    Boycotting the tombland rank was a great success and shows what can be achieved when we all sing from the same sheet.
    If your not a member of the assn please at least think of joining.
    The newsletter was a success and it was voted that we continued to publish a newsletter on a regular basis If there is any drivers reading this that would like to contribute to the “new bulletin”.please send me an article or a letter and we will publish in next months bulletin.
    At the end of the day it will be your newsletter if you wish to sell something just send me an e mail.We need to make this work it is for everyone of us. long may we stick together. Any suggestions .Ian

  3. Quite agree Ian in your comments, but ‘newsletter’ ? I never saw it & nor did many of my fellow cabbies! Maybe you should make sure the newsletter is distributed throughout the trade to gain maximum exposure.

  4. Sorry you didn’t get a newsletter 200were printed and could have been got from any committee member you have two members on a2b circuit.however already looking into this Dale has asked for next months to be posted on this site.Meanwhileplease feel free to contribute. THE bulletin as it is being called is for all the trade.although it will be a trade newsletter it is for all the drivers and will be our way of banding the drivers together .

  5. Great points raised as always. Great content and excellent content as always. I’m Tweeting about this now!
