I personally think it'll be well over 50%......perhaps 75%....positive discrimination I reckon.

That's not what PL from the DfT said at the Coventry show.

I didnt know he was physic as well :wink:

The DFT are doing 3 test areas, the results will come from that, I think.

The DDA, as it was allowed LA's to positively discriminate.....IMO anything below 50% aint positive.....

He said the percantage they were working towards was 35%.

Don't shoot the messenger.

A lot of places will have lots of taxi plates issued.

In some places they will be lobbying for the next six months against loads more WAVs, and then after the DfT have given their %, those same places will be lobbying for 100% WAVs.

But by then it may well be too late. ](*,)

Without a doubt it will be 50%.

For the brain dead buffoons who think it will be less than 50% FFS the clue is in the name of the f***ing act.

Speaking from a Dundee point of view i think it would be hard for any demonstration to come to the conclusion that Dundee needs 50% wavs.Especially when at the last licence meeting a council official with 17 years experience said that people in wheelchairs do not use ranks.(allot of shxt).
I know Dundee are keen to be one of the city's taken part in the demonstrations.

TBH does it matter?

It seems to me Dundee with different rules for different licensees, is an example of how NOT to do things.

Carlisle would be ideal......since the situation with the station rank changed we have less WAV's !!

good for the cab trade, bad for people in wheelchairs.

But hell, I dont carry them!

You need case and a passenger who cant get into one of the HC's currently licensed.

That aside, Wirrals HC trade is as bad as dundees!

I know, but, I keep hoping somebody else will take the bull by the horns. It's not going to happen tho unless some sole brave person (idiot) takes on the LA
