Before you answer........ In this particular case pick any month you like and the result would be the same.

December? :?


Certain nights most definitely, and an answer to my ? "but what exactly do you mean" would be appreciated.


Fair to all
i.e. the travelling public, and those seeking a licence not just those who already have one.

How can any survey show a true representation of the trade by surveying in January and February?

Why not do the survey in November and December?


It is evident by the very numbers that Cardiff is over the top with Taxis, on your basis we would have to wait another 8 months to come to the same summary.

Perhaps everyone should have these teams out 12 months of the year (only for fairness) :roll: , I mean to say would the same principle apply to say "Bournemouth" who probably do well during the summer months and not so well in Nov/Dec. In answer to Nov/Dec, neither would that be fair as you would be taking extreme peaks as a guide, with possibly the other 10 months to then struggle.

That's why most other, if not all, SUD surveys take place May/June or September/October. Thus finding the middle ground.
