Public safety Warning-Uber non safety issue compliance-TFL complaints investigation delayed-riders-partners-Uber very costly over unusual cab practices in cancellation-suspect situations


Uber deemed a public risk if paid by card and more as the Cab watchdog service keep the public updated, over unusual cab rules for the trade and the passenger, as a result of poor Uber app technology, resulting in costly and poor unsafe practices offered by Uber to the unsuspecting public consumer, not forgetting the Uber driver-contractor in the Uber work space


Cab watchdog service claim Uber have ignored the contact, rather than deal with the current and very apparent safety issues


Senior Partner for the BIT organisation Mr Nelson, advised TFL recently, to seek expert advice on the safety issues that Uber Ireland are currently ignoring, as they were obvious to those trained to recognise

images (34).jpg

Mr Nelson heading the Uber complaints case in the public interests, not only for those in the UK but across the world, said its time Uber became more realistic in running their cab business in the UK as a private hire operator, licensed by authorities like Transport for London


Some Uber practices too dangerous to mention for even Uber today as it turns out, as Uber seem to be afraid to comment further at this time publicly, in the interests of true safety in the public domain for all sides concerned, even after questioning by the cab watchdog service, with a copy of the conversation sent to Transport for London in January…..


Uber still remain silent after being notified TFL – Transport for London are on the complaints case, and have listened to the call, after Uber stumbled into the situation, as a result of BIT organisation’s Cab Watchdog service, taking up the Uber complaints case now found on google for public consumption, so they too can get to that Uber complaints BIT


BIT organisation as usual armed with their infamous game over team, now truly getting involved in that Uber BIT, or stuck into it, as part of the free service out there for badly treated folks, that do not like being tripped up and then falling on their face




Many Uber riders-consumers are losing their card payment money and paying for nothing unnecessarily, when you go compare the taxi industry

With partner deactivation and data information requests being ignored also by Uber, with clear issues of job security, and sanity in the work place still on the table for Uber to address, which at this time Uber continue to ignore, said a spokesman for the Cab Watchdog service only today, after requesting data obtained by Uber on an Uber driver whilst at work – ratings data, for this driver – partner, who had worked the Uber platform for some time


Further requests were made for a full understanding of the rating system, which was not explained or defined at the induction process for partners-those looking to work the Uber platform, and do the dance with the Uber app when getting rider feedback or Uber so called feedback



We understand Uber are in violation by not providing or responding to the request in full or even in part

maxresdefault (14).jpg

data access appears to be a clear issue for Uber, for even the Cab watchdog service and an Uber driver who wants to know the facts, another Uber complaints issue

tumblr_m7rvow0jYk1r8yl76o4_250 (1).gif

In January Uber went into hiding whilst their robots later convict them, as the unlife like platform internet transport – cab business model it is


A service that many Uber drivers have no faith in, as a result of its unusual and often unsafe practices, that today Uber refuse to address after discussing the matter in January, now several months late, and therefore Uber’s current TV advertisement amounts to untruths or fake perceptions for the public on the matter of safety

Cab Watchdog service asks Uber CEO  – Dara Khosrowshahi,



The opinion of the Cab watchdog team is Uber are firmly on the run given Cab Watchdog have opened the Uber complaints file, and caught Uber square on, if you take on the facts, all the way back to Jany or Jane at Uber UK – Ireland, and those safety issues discussed that resulted in a clear message with understanding by both sides at the time


The 76 minute call with Uber Jany defined some of the Uber business practices that needed to be stopped right away, in the interest of sanity and public safety, and more,


There was no doubt that Jane agreed and made what some would deem as definite statements for action and change right away, that could be used in court, and so TFL – Transport for London got the Uber complaints call evidence, in the interests of passing on vital evidence in respect of public safety, with change, as stated by Uber during the 76 minute call in January





We would have to ask Uber drivers how many spoke to Jany or Jane after reading this blog as another example of the ongoing Uber complaints file


Did Uber partners really get a call too to discuss this Uber app

Did any of the so called top drivers-partners, do Uber pretend with you like this…

Learn more about how Uber consumer complaints mount, over cancellation charges they are unable to get back, after Uber drivers exercise their right to use the cancellation option, because the technology seems to put the Uber driver or potential rider in the wrong place, or situation, at times, or many times over, because the Uber business model is not like a normal cab firm or taxi business as we know it



As a result many complaints regarding unfair cancellation fees charged to the Uber rider result, with some consumers being charged several times in some cases or regular cases, because they just tried to order one cab, especially when there are events in cities like Cardiff, using just one example

Taxi licensing head off their head with legendary stifle games-Bridgend Cabinet get the message by info for local Trade’s freedom and Policy officer

Bridgend taxi licensing head-Yvonne Witchell looks past her sell by date, with legendary stifle games for the Bridgend Taxi Trade still active today folks

After the BIT organisation gets familiar with Yvonne Witchell, who last year went on the run, rather than sit down and discuss her risk taking, when an offering was made by Cab Watchdog service to establish if there is a policy in place to justify licensing head’s legendary games, that affect the well being of Bridgend’s taxi trade still today

Can Bridgend confirm the reason for constant delays in processing taxi matters, including communications on taxi a whole as experienced by the cab watchdog service – BIT organisation and others over decades, according to our survey.

1. Thus resulting in fare proposals being delayed for years.

2. Policy changes and consultations and their processes being delayed for years. Including moT testing, and age policy

3. Having to wait in excess of 3 months and more, for simple email replies.

4. Policy officer extends his hand but head of licensing behaves as if it is her right to stifle the taxi trade, as part of an on going agenda now for decades. Discrimination also results.

5. Wasting the ombudsman service time also as the cab Watchdog service have to each time point out all of the above

Why is taxi licensing proving to be so inept in communications, and processing trade matters and concerns in quick time or reasonable time?

Is it taxi licensings head remit to stifle the taxi trade, and does the new chief executive condone the same as part of BCBC standard policy. Would that also include Cabinet potentially if licensing head stifles the process like she did recently by not writing to the trade in good time. But instead took a year or more to send out letters to the trade. Why?

These questions and examples have been compiled in the public interest as a result of the Cab watchdog service following a strategy to expose the delays forensically,  these practices of BCBC, when it comes to the taxi trade that are now blatant, and firmly historic, over a very long time or time line spanning many years.

Many taxi facts have been made public by the Cab watchdog service in the public interests, so the public can understand how slow BCBC can be deliberately.

Even the ombudsman is aware of the BIT organisation and it’s findings todate.

It is for this reason we request the information in this freedom of information request for absolute clarification given there are many issues still on the table that we seek to resolve, as licensing continue to delay as if there is a special remit to deliberty stifle the bridgend taxi trade.

Yours sincerely

D Nelson

Hackney Carriage Taxi fares in Bridgend to increase 14 January 2019 tells Daniel Cook Policy officer to BIT Senior Partner

In the much awaited news release for the Bridgend Hackney Carriage Taxi trade,  the BIT organisation- Taxi Watch Dog Wales, has pleasure in announcing that Bridgend Hackney Carriage fares are to increase on the 14 of January 2019, which is the official implementation date, folks


After almost 8 years, and a 2 year fight to push for an increase in fares to bring Bridgend back to the real world of Hackney Carriage fares, BIT Senior Partner gets the signal the hackney carriage trade have been waiting for



Re: Bridgend Hackney Carriage Fare Tariff – Implementation Date2

    Good morning,

    I am writing to advise that the amended hackney carriage tariff, approved by Bridgend Cabinet on 18 December, will be implemented on 14 January 2019.

    I have attached a copy of the tariff sheet.

In a statement from Mr Nelson Senior Partner for the BIT organisation only moments ago, Mr Nelson said, we can safely say that Bridgend Cabinet did the right thing and chose a tariff that brought the trade up to a tariff level during the day, that the BIT organisation fought to push that point across, during our campaign to get Cabinet to listen to the trades needs. Our work is not finished as the vehicle age policy and MOT testing, is still on the table to be resolved.

    To whom it may concern

    It is a year since the hackney carriage age policy consultation and MOT

    It has been established during the taxi fare consultations for the public and the trade, that the 2 consultation reports can be written up in a matter of days and not one year or years

    Therefore we must now ask when the report will be written up by Daniel Cook Policy officer so it may go in front of Cabinet, and on what date will it be on the Agenda for Cabinet to consider.

    We are looking for factual replies with factual dates so we arE not left gazing at the council’s meetings agenda till the cows come home.

    This freedom of information request is sent in the public and the taxi trade interest, as this matter has been on going now more than two years. A time frame that is unacceptable given it has already been proven there was no need for the matter to remain unreported for a year since the original public consultation in 2017

    We await a comprehensive reply with factual dates and times frames.

Bridgend Taxi fares-GO for a Hike-Cabinet approval-Taxi Meter calibration-call in period-implementation hold-Witchell Stick comes on the record quick

This is a special late edition news from the BIT organisation coming to you in Mid Glamorgan in Wales, in a constitutional special edition for your thoughts, where ever you are in the World

You ever been caught by surprise, folks



Earlier today in a historic moment for local Cabbies, Bridgend Taxi Fares were announced as approved by Bridgend Cabinet, and of course well before Christmas day


But later of course we learn, cab fares now delayed until 2 Feb 2019 potentially, because the decision by Cabinet is subject to the councils constitutional process – call in period – on page 99 section 18, where all Councillors must be given notice of the Cabinet decision, before any implementation, folks


There is mention of a 3 day notice period by email or notice in council offices for those that need to be involved in the constitutional process


Basically all the Councillors, all need to be officially served notice of the proceedings outcome, with the option to ask for the matter to be put under further scrutiny for whatever reason they may have


The Tariff approved once implemented, a feeling given the process thus far, will leave local cabbies counting their pennies at the end of their shifts


Another serious dilemma, is if the new mentioned contamination fee is asked for by a cabbie, a subject covered in a previous blog, where the police will not attend, putting cabbies under even more pressure in such a circumstance, with legal complications with civil court fees, and time out to cover the charge in court time,if defended by the passenger


It should be noted the contamination fee currently stands at ONE HUNDRED POUNDS

On the council website it read recently as part of a link found on google-

Taxi fares flagged for first rise since 2011 – Bridgend County Borough …

1 Nov 2018 – Drivers were also keen for the soiling charge to increase to £125. … 

Court fees

You must pay a court fee when you make your claim.

The fee for making a money claim online is cheaper than the fee for sending a paper claim form.

If you know the claim amount

The court fee is based on the amount you’re claiming, plus interest.

Claim amount Paper form fee Online claim fee
Up to £300 £35 £25

    Good morning

    The legal facts for shared regulatory services and Cabinet

    Is £125 enforceable because it’s written on a taxi tariff?
    Answer not by the Police
    In fact it has been proven that the charge exceeds the byelaws for street soiling
    The story is available with factual comments from South Wales Police
    We would recommend you do not ignore.
    It is already irresponsible to not inform the public this is a civil matter.
    When you have 60+issues, this is just another.
    This email may form part of an ombudsman’s assessment.
    Yours sincerely
    Senior Partner
    BIT organisation – Taxi Watch Dog Wales

As you can see Taxi Watch dog has warned the council that the contamination fee if implemented, had legal ramifications for the council as the charge is excessive, as a Judge may argue Drive is asking for too much if he/she were to take civil action against a passenger, who did not have the money to pay such a large amount at the time

tenor (91).gif

In court the passenger could argue the charge was excessive and crazy, in a counter claim or counter argument, using Cardiff Taxi trade as an example, after all Dave Holland is shared regulatory services, and there are others like Swansea, as well as others, when you go look at their charges for contamination displayed on their tariffs, which has no real legal footing for the police to get involved we must remind you


Earlier on our – we had these comments from a member of the public

Gareth Long – What I can see ….. Who come up with the proposal ideas ???
Honest to God u need to rethink…
T2-3+4 u got 22p per click where we on 25p click now…(where’s the sense) And putting up the contamination fee to £125. You can’t get £50 out of a drunk person let alone £125


As you will see further below, the new potential tariff has that 2 pence factor, and the £125 contamination fee coming the publics way any time soon



Listen in to the way this consultation process has been approved, and what will be needed going forward for the trade, along with the objections raised, which were few


The Taxi Watch Dog team did their home work on this one, and the outcome was what was expected, contrary to those out of touch in the trade for years, and to this day, that said the Bridgend public would object to a hike in taxi fares, or would simply walk 5 miles instead of getting in a cab

We now listen in, with a running commentary from TAXI WATCH DOG all tidy like

    Thus leaving many cabs going in for test just before their expiry as one example
    With more questions relating to their procedures in place or not in place surrounding the admin applied by the council in processing and issuing paper work to the trade
    such as the issue of a hackney certificate, in good time, so drive can have them when he or she should, to upload to private hire operators systems, and insurance company systems

      Dear Mr Nelson,

      I write in reference to your email to Daniel Cook advising that you intend to calibrate your meter on 19 December 2018, following Cabinet’s decision to approve the new table of fares.

      As with all Cabinet decisions, it is subject to a call-in period whereby a Councillor may call-in the decision for further scrutiny. As a result, the new tariff cannot be implemented during the call-in period. Further information regarding the call-in process can be found within the Council’s constitution available at

      We will be in contact in due course and provided the decision is not called in, the tariff will be implemented no later than 2 February 2019.

      Please note that until the new tariff has been implemented, the current tariff remains in effect and it is an offence to charge more than the legal fare.

      Kind regards,

      Yvonne Witchell

    Taxi test – anxiety attack – HC5552

      6 Dec at 12:27

      Good afternoon

      Wendy should note I did not refuse to renew the license. As my body like all taxi drivers require food etc, it would be stupid for any would be professional at licensing to jump to a conclusion that I am refusing to renew or pay for my license.

      Following a visit to the Brackla testing station some 40 miles from my home rather than an MOT centre, I found I was unable to book my test date in 6 months time.
      As it is unacceptable as a taxi driver to have a test date one date prior to expiry, which causes unnecessary anxiety, what dates are available two weeks or more before the new expiry of the licence for HC555?
      I look forward to your department coming on the record on this matter in good time.

    It has been several weeks since I asked the question when will Daniel Cook publish the objections report. The next scheduled meeting would suggest the 18th is a window.

    Beyond this period will demonstrate further negligence. The consultation if it was closed on the 16th, would suggest that there is still time for the matter to go in front of Cabinet given the previous report on the consultation. So I ask again when will the report be out on the public hackney carriage fare consultation and on what date will it be in front of Cabinet.
    We’ve already had phony dates put out in the press that were never going to happen.
    May I remind you that it is Christmas and many taxi families depend on thE response and action on this matter
    Therefore it is appropriate to answer the request properly rather than suggest one should go an gaze at a agenda for years if BCBC previous negligence is anything to go by
    This email foi request is sent in the public interests as the council have failed to provide the information requested prior. They have already demonstrated to the BIT organisation that they can supply the information.
    This email may form part of an ombudsman’s investigation
    Yours sincerely

    In a dramatic move Bridgend council gives the public and the taxi trade,the show they have been waiting for, as we look in on the latest performance, with
    only days to go before Christmas is in and then gone
    Have you got the tree up yet, are you ready to go
