Any WAV is common sense when the dangers of complying with proportions is concerned.

Oh I see, so safety isn't important so long as we don't have to provide purpose built safe WAVs cos they're too expensive, got it, silly me :wink:

And the unlucky 45 are selected how?

For 'common sense' read 'clueless'.

And why 45 conversions as compared to 65 new ones anyway?

If they were unsafe they would not be on the road, let alone licensed.

Other than the problem highlighted in the above post. It has long been thought that the rear loaders are not as safe as the purpose built WAV and in fact some LAs refuse to license them because of this

we have 18% of 249 so we need 45 more wav to reach 35% if we dont
the council will issue 65 new licences to make 35% of 304.
theres more than 45 of us willing to have these fine vehicles for the greater
good besides anything to appease those knuckleheads at westminster :)

If you going to laugh at least get it right. I never backed the Btec or the Nvq, I backed the idea of training. I'm not the only person that thinks rear loaders are unsafe. Why don't 45 of you purchase purpose built WAVs and make like a proper taxi and stop trying to be PH with silly roof sign :roll:

Your so right Toots..their was a couple of Bristol Hoteliers that also thought rear loaders were unsafe and they ended up paying heaps in compensation because they Didnt allow them.

Maybe Im getting my stories confused

You gotta be so careful nowadays !!!! :?:

Two things:

1 I doubt you will find 45 volunteers selfless enough to fall on their swords, for the greater good of the trade.

2 Where does the figure of 35% come from?

1. Your right

2. Its a made uppy figure plucked from thin air.

3. Despite our many differences, I think most of your views are about right :wink:

Well like the others I'm surprised to hear you've got so many volunteers, or perhaps there's just 45 people who think it's a good idea.

I think they tried the same in Bradford, but needless to say it didn't work - everyone was happy with the principle, but not so happy actually doing it.

So if things don't quite go to plan, remember you read it here first :wink:
