Milford Haven taxi company fined for not identifying driver

A MILFORD Haven taxi company has been fined £1,000 for not identifying a driver who was alleged to have committed an offence.

It was alleged that the driver of a Seat Alhambra belonging to Elite Taxis Ltd had committed an offence in the Avon and Somerset Police force area.

The company was charged with failing to give information relating to the identification of the driver of a vehicle when required.

The offence was proved using the single justice procedure at Bath Magistrates’ Court on May 16.

Elite Taxis Ltd was fined £1,000, and was also ordered to pay a £400 surcharge and £90 in costs.

A cynic might say that the firm knew who the driver was, maybe even the boss.

But paying that amount in fines and costs would be a far better outcome than the driver getting banned if they already had a hateful of points.

It's also worth the council asking the firm why they didn't know who was driving. :-k

yes you have to wonder if the fine was the lesser of two evils for the owner. Why else would you not disclose the information ?
