Prague continues to fight against rogue taxi drivers

PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - Restrictions on the validity of the test period of five years, the possibility of complete repeat it more than one month from the filing date or tightening the rules for the use of taxis are another habitat rules Prague fights against rogue taxi drivers. He said on Tuesday councilor Luke Manhart (TOP 09).

"Among the most important changes that I suggest are limiting the validity of a certificate of successful completion of an examination of the indeterminate time period of five years. The reason for this step is often poor knowledge of geography with taxi drivers, to which the clients complain. This test will be able to participate only taxi drivers, not even the so-called contract of carriage drivers, for which no test of geography condition, "said Manhart.

Another new feature is the ability to undergo repeat it more than one month from the filing date, thereby avoiding unjustified expropriation capacity tests. "Some drivers instead of a responsible approach to testing, which would consist in studying the test substance rather chooses option of unlimited attempts. There is a driver who has completed thirteen test, and yet it has failed to pass," said Manhart.

The amendment generally binding decrees city also wants to prevent taxi drivers now log in at a certain time in several attempts to pass a test or before the test need to submit at least two identity cards. The changes should occur as other relationship issues in a single assay. Prague plans to set the same number of questions for geography and knowledge of legal regulations.

Since June of this year, an amendment to the law on road transport, which allows for the collection of deposits from drivers of taxis. In the event that the driver bail passed, the car should be shut down and it would be held in his vehicle documents in until pay a fine.

With the advent of the new year, the number of inspectors in Prague by Manhart increased from four to six. Of the total of 920 checks were found in five cases of overpricing, in 16 cases, the taxi driver did not deliver the customer a receipt from the printer taximeter and in 120 cases there was another violation of the law on road transport.

In addition to bonding capital in the fight against rogue taxi drivers has set clear rules for the use of their habitats. In the case of new habitats administrator becomes the one who submits the highest bid for an annual rent of the place.Another major change is the granting of consent from Prague for the use of these habitats. "The habitat management agreement had previously awarded by administrators themselves, and we can not interfere in it. Newly capital city of Prague will give consent to the use of myself," she recently told councilors. For sites without an administrator authorizes Technical Administration of Roads (TSK).

On the territory of the city's 7,137 taxi drivers with a valid test for the city and a total of 3,973 registered vehicles. Passengers can find in the metropolis of 46 habitats taxi to your administrator. Their capacity is 150 seats. Another 71 sites is not an administrator. At places the total of 197 parking spaces.
