But Ian Hall, chairman of Southampton hackney and private hire association, said: “We want the private hire vehicles to have the door sign with the name of the operator. It is for the safety of the public.”

Numpty personified. #-o

All app work shows the vehicle make and colour, and a picture of the driver. Many include the plate number and reg.

Mobile bookings can show the same via text, nearly all do already.

So the issue can only be landline bookings, which is mainly people's residences, and the chances of someone going to someone's home on the off chance they want a taxi/PH are rather slim in my opinion. :roll: :roll:

But let's just say the worst happens, according to my numpty mate, a customer doesn't get into the correct booked car by mistake, instead they get into a 'fit and proper' vehicle driven by a 'fit and proper' driver.

Where's the public safety issue?

He said he would be "reluctant" to employ drivers who use magnetic door signs.

I wonder how many drivers he employs? [-(
