New 125 pound Taxi Soil charge goes civil-Police will not attend warns taxi Watch dog-Cab Driver madness-Bridgend train Station hate crime

In today news, we bring you an astonishing fact that may well rock the world of many Cabbies across Wales today, including councils printing a taxi tariff with a soil charge on it  This ladies and gentleman is a BIT NEWS world exclusive, if you have ever been sick of a Cab Driver, then keep reading, if you hate hate crime keep reading

globalnews.gif

Do any of these councils in England and Wales read the law when they ask cab drivers to get a soiling fee of between £50 in some boroughs like Cardiff, Swansea, Carmarthenshire, or a wapping £125 to be introduced in Bridgend Mid Glamorgan, soon.

our-people-465px-wide.gif

We ask the public who really knows about the real cab laws, when you travel in a taxi in South Wales or in England,  when you have a bit of a turn

So today we are going to take you through the basics in the event you are out for the night and find yourself in a civil dispute with your cabbie or passenger

You will find 2 sections with the latter getting to the heart of today’s news

TAXI FARE DISPUTES
Making off Without Payment, Obtaining Services Dishonestly and Civil Disputes
Cab Drivers who provide the service of transporting people around Wales and England area are always at risk of encountering awkward or dishonest people who will try to evade their duty to pay for the service by any means possible.

EcMp.gif
This information provided here today for the public to recognise, is intended to offer guidance as to whether an incident will be investigated as a criminal offence by the Police or whether the matter has to be dealt with by way of civil law by a solicitor. As in all cases the facts must be assessed individually by the Police, at the time of the incident to decide the correct course of action.

Crown_Prosecution_Service.png

It should be noted that for the police to consider prosecution there has to be an element of dishonesty involved in the actions taken by the passenger(s).
Dishonesty has to pass two tests – Firstly, whether a person’s behaviour would be regarded as dishonest by the ordinary standards of reasonable and honest people. Secondly, if the person was dishonest by those standards then whether they were aware that what they were doing was dishonest.
Drunkenness is not a defence to dishonesty.

yourhonor.gif
The following basic examples illustrate the possible criminal offences:-
1. A passenger who leaves the vehicle and makes off without paying the fare commits an offence under Section 3 of the Theft Act 1978 – Making off without payment
In simple terms a person who uses the taxi knowing that payment is required or DISHONESTLY makes off without payment, intending that payment shall not be made, commits the offence. The fact that the passenger has run off would satisfy the dishonesty aspect.
The service provided must be lawful therefore an offence cannot be committed if a private hire vehicle or hackney carriage operates outside their respective regulations.
2. A passenger who enters the vehicle and has no money in his possession but fails to inform the cab driver until the journey is complete commits an offence under Section 11 Fraud Act 2006 – Obtaining services dishonestly
It is an offence for any person, by any dishonest act, to obtain services for which payment is required, with intent to avoid payment.
A person is guilty of an offence under this section if he obtains services for himself or another providing;
The person must know that the services are made available on the basis that payment has been, is being, or will be made. It can be committed only where the dishonest act was done with the intent not to pay for the services as expected.
The fact the passenger knowingly uses the service without having the means to pay would satisfy the dishonesty requirement. It can be a defence if a person makes an honest mistake as to certain facts causing him/her to take a course of action which, on the surface, appears to be an offence, for example, the person thought they had the money to pay for the cab but had lost his wallet.
3. A Passenger who refuses to pay the fare at the end of the journey commits an offence under Section 11 Fraud Act 2006 – Obtaining services dishonestly
Provided there is evidence that the passenger entered the cab knowing a fee would be required for the provision of the service with the intent of not paying and it can be proved he acted in a dishonest manner then an offence contrary to section 11 of the Fraud Act 2006 would be committed.
If the passenger states that he was unhappy with the service and attempts to negotiate part payment and provides his details the matter would become a civil debt and would not be dealt with by police.

homer.gif

Civil Disputes
The boundary between the civil and criminal law will always be the subject to a degree of interpretation but the following are examples of civil matters that cannot be dealt with by the police:-
 Passenger disputes the fare but makes an offer of payment.
Passenger soils the vehicle agrees to paying the fare but refuses to pay the soiling charge.
 Passenger is dissatisfied with the service and refuses to pay the fare but provides their name and address and then leaves the scene.
 Passenger has disputed the fare but makes an offer of payment which is refused by the cab driver, but provides their name and address and then leaves the scene.
Where there is a dispute and the driver locks a passenger in the vehicle until payment is made or locks the vehicle and drives to a police station, the driver could leave themselves open to criminal proceedings for false imprisonment and/or counter action under civil law.

ImpartialBeautifulAntarcticfurseal-max-1mb.gif
Taxi drivers have a duty of care to their customers and should not abandon them in potentially dangerous circumstances, even though it may become apparent during the journey that the passenger may not have the full fare. This is particularly relevant when the weather is bad or the passenger is vulnerable, whether through drink or other circumstances.

sin-7.gif

Senior Partner conducting the taxi trade assessment on the soiling charge currently intended for Bridgend Council Cabinet to act on and so implement, is concerned that not only are Bridgend Council misleading the Cabbie as to their rights, but also many other boroughs across the country are doing the same. Cabbies are given the impression that the soil charge forms part of the table of fares, when in it’s current format, it most certainly does not. A serious concern says The Taxi Watch Dog – Senior Partner of the BIT organisation

Also coming up Bridgend station taxi saga hots up as the Railway children get active after a warning was issued on BIT News in a recent blog,

Today we have more news, folks, as we unravel a cabbies life at the Bridgend Railway station rank which includes hate crimes

rs_480x232-160617151530-tumblr_mwmur4ZE0u1rdh9azo1_500.gif

Following the release of the last blog the situation has heated up as transport Police receive complaints from station Cabbies. The officer dealing with the case known to many as Ian, had made contact with a couple of station cabbies following a number of incidents, as station cab drivers continue to complain of illegal activities at the station by rougue cab drivers without a permit, Ian responsible for a number of station locations including Swansea, said Ill be back

070129-Pay-display-parking

some cabbie are still not displaying a valid permit we can confirm

One Cabbie stopped another transport Police officer to make him aware of the same. We are advised Transport Police are most definitely on the look out

RankBrain-improve-ctr.gif

In a rather dramatic moment The Taxi Watch Dog team received a rather revealing email from one of the station cabbies, this week, who shall remain nameless at this time, complaining he is being regularly insulted, and bullied in effect over time at work on the station rank directly outside the station, the 4 spot rank.

37789523_2206112616289536_3230141235695976448_n.png

We understand BIT Senior Partner contacted the bully by email to make the individual aware that they were breaking the law, and will face charges if they continue harassing the local cabbie

the-watch-dog-crime-blog-logo2 (1)

The same individual we cannot name at this time, was also found to be acting in a manner that was considered misuse of the NCP permit, as well as plying for hire illegally at the station without a valid permit, with a matching vehicle registration. Further evidence of the same was sent to the BIT organisation

goodidea.gif

It should be noted that one station cabbie disputed the NCP permit display terms and conditions by saying bleeep the terms and conditions, I thought we were all mates to help each other out. The Dragon Taxi Drivers’s identity has not been revealed in his own interests, said BIT Senior Partner that spoke to the driver at Bridgend station that held the system in contempt allegedly

    Dear Mr Nelson

    I refer to your email below.

    Otto Car Ltd has instructed the Licensing Section to contact you directly regarding payment of the renewal fee for HC 555 and a testing time.  I am advised a Licensing Support Officer has spoken to you about this and you have responded that you would not pay the fee over the phone, and would only pay the fee in cash to Yvonne Witchell.  Yvonne Witchell will not meet with you in relation to this matter.

    I am writing to advise you therefore that unless you pay the licence fee over the phone, or to one of the Licensing Support Officers in person at the Civic Offices, we will treat this as a refusal to pay the renewal fee and contact Otto Car Ltd for further instructions.

    Please contact 01656 643109 to make arrangements to pay the fee by one of the above methods.

    I have also sent a hard copy of this letter to your home address.

    Dear Mr Lane
    Thank you for coming on the record regarding 555.
    For avoidance of doubt it is already public knowledge that you have been deemed a bully, and that you should not contact Mr Nelson.
    However as you have confirmed the hackney carriage number in your email, we will give you a free pass this time, as it is news worthy, and I believe in the public interest to read your communications.
    The vehicle is registered to OTTO Car as you are aware, what you are not aware my learned friend it makes absolutely no difference to OTTO Car if the vehicle licence expires.
    I do however question shared regulatory services data protection compliance given the content of your email given the vehicle is owned by OTTO Car.  If I didn’t know better I would think you are having a winge and Yvonne Witchell is not qualified as head to deal with taxi matter as she did in the past, including talking to me on serious matters taxi licensing. But when the learned officer has to get you invloved we know you haven’t got the time to check things etc. So once again thank you for showing the same as operations manager
    As for the letter you are sending, please ensure you let Christina Hill know and Yvonne Wirchell and Dave holland and maybe cllr Patel too not forgetting Darren Mepham.
    In fact can you now come on the record and provide a written undertaking that you will also provide the chief executive a copy of your letter come email now firmly on the record for all to see.
    I await your written undertaking
    Yours Sincerely
    Senior Partner

Taxi Driver massive  have been shot in the economic taxi fare butt, because BCBC Cabinet and operations namely shared regulatory service, have no modern idea about the taxi trade, and have taken to choosing an impractical solution after pretending they all know best, and are well trained, said Senior Partner heading the massive investigation for the Bridgend massive

Good day madam
The BIT organisation writes to confirm our latest client is Taxi Driver 319, as a result of your letter date 24/10/2018 – your ref: YW/319
As you are aware our newest client has requested a meeting to discuss a few serious and personal issues in relation to his taxi badge and taxi license
A matter that must be dealt with face to face. There will be a need to provide a cash amount of £267.00. This meeting needs to take place no later than 2 weeks before the amount due is due as recommended by yourself 14 days before expiry, as per conversation with Wendy off the record last week
We wont no funny business on this matter  madam, no discrimination and certainly no delays, or time delays where its like if you want a reply, you have to name that tune – that sings about we will reply if it does not mention BIT organisation. I am afraid we are representing Mr Nelson.
For avoidance of doubt, this email is coming from the BIT organisation -Senior Partner Mr D Nelson – your ref: YW/319 –
You know Nelson like free – Nelson Mandella
BIT organisation giving reference to Martin Luther King and Moses and others when refering to what the organisation does for the taxi trade – https://bitnews725.wordpress.com – thats actually written by our client 319 Mr Nelson also, who has a double identity in more ways than one don’t you know, my learned head,
.
We are happy to come down to the Vale of Glamorgan if you like, but it is Bridgend Taxi Driver business, to do with that bit and that bit, and you too can get to that BIT
Please be sure and I must remind you about that BIT –
So recently the BIT organisation- Mr D Nelson 319 – Taxi Watch Dog Wales- your ref – YW/319, asked you to bring to the forth coming meeting, date still awaiting advice, in an email requesting BCBC equality/discrimination policy in relation to BIT or BIT organisation also known as Taxi Watch Dog a free service to the taxi trade in Bridgend and Mr Nelson  –  Taxi Driver 319 – MEMBERS of THE PUBLIC
I have attached a link which is an external link, which you may find helpful when you open it
Hopefully you will understand what doc is not displayed on your website allegedly, as I have attached the Cardiff example displayed on The BIT Organisation website by 319 Bridgend Taxi Driver also known as Mr D Nelson
You should note you can also find this link if you go to – https://bitnews725.wordpress.com/ and then the FACEBOOK LINK – 5. This Policy Statement supports the Council’s Equality Scheme, which outlines how we will comply with the Equality Act 2010
You will be aware that there was no link on the BCBC website as per call put through to the learned Nicola. That’s If you are unable to see evidence of that factor, when you listen to the call,
Please feel free to contact BIT organisation to obtain a free copy should you wish – Please be sure to mention that you made an invitation and later forgot about it – as shown –  https://bitnews725.wordpress.com/
You can contact BIT organisation Mr Nelson directly on the matter, as you have already been informed all calls are recorded in the taxi trade interest for which he is a Member, and so is the taxi watch dog Wales – BIT organisation as free trade organisation offering the taxi driver options to deal with that BIT, including written authorization to deal with that BIT as already demonstrated to your officer Daniel Cook on the subject of licensing fees, highlighted in 2017 in council minutes and emails firmly on the record. A subject that Cymru Cabs of Pencoed, asked us to deal with on their behalf, and was published by the BIT organisation on the old Bit News face book by Da Nelson
I have recently had a visit to spec savers, so I will be very able to read any documentation to you, confirming the same if you cannot see evidence of it.
Hopefully you will find that BIT
I trust that clarifies the matter for you going forward indefinitely until informed otherwise
Yours Sincerely
D Nelson
Senior Partner
For and on behalf of the BIT organisation
N.B – For the record
This email will be published in the public interest and will eventually be accessible on – https://bitnews725.wordpress.com/

A Witch flies over-Bridgend 2018 Taxi fares increase-Proposal 1 to go to a wicked public consultation-Licensing Team Manager-Yvonne Witchell loses grip of BCBC broom stick

Its Halloween time and a Witch is seen crossing the vale of Glamorgan, bound for Bridgend, Coity Castle, that was the report that came in after dark like a quiet mist slithering through the skies of South wales into the blacklisted art form called BCBC

doomed.gif

Yvonne Witchell – Yvonne.Witchell@bridgend.gov.uk of Bridgend Taxi licences– nick named – The Witchell stick – appears to have lost the plot, and her long established stick, after being grounded by a watch dog taxi spell, picked up in England, against wayward taxi licensing spells that prohibit fares increase, a practice found here in this medieval part of Mid Glamorgan, Wales, called Angel Street, Bridgend

eyewitness-news-logo1-e1515529979188

Team Manager licensing for head of regulatory services, sends a letter by recorded delivery folks, to BIT organisation Senior Partner ,and it reads angry and vexatious, folks, like a Witch applying an evil spell, that in the end fails to have any affect any more on the victim, using that old Witchell Stick routine coming from some where that looks over the moon

e5P3am.jpg

A team member of the BIT organisation reading the letter, reported it read like Yvonne Witchell, flew off the handle,

tenor (67).gif

A local Cabbie with a new 8 seater mini bus, was outraged when he heard that BIT that Daniel Cook under costed his 8 seater taxi, when the Policy officer reported costings to Cabinet for 4 seater taxis in the borough bought by the trade, to be no more than £17,000, including 5,6,7,8 seater Bridgend hackney carriage cabs

MV5BMjI5MjE1MzUzN15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODEyNjQxMTE@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_

The cab driver was out walking his dog at the time, who said he wished to remain anonymous, said – How can they do that at the council- and before running off had a look of disgust, written all over this Bridgend cab drivers face

tenor (69).gif

Another Drive said Cook was having a tin bath Rodney, hasnt he got any ruddy GCSE’s, my car falls into 26,000 pounds bracket, the plonker, what a dip stick, is he mutton Jeff or something, the wally

f2c08ab0537af7180930fd974a8d5866.jpg

giphy (43).gif

Following the report by Cook supplied to Cabinet, BIT Senior Partner tells Ombudsman services that BCBC taxi fare setting Method policy, is out dated,and flawed for sure, and there is the proof clearly in cooks latest offering, with no sums, just noises incomprehensible

win.gif

Guessing is now out, and also sweeping taxi fare proposals under the desk for years, said Senior BIT Partner, as it proves too costly to the taxi trade in England and Wales

survey

A gentleman from Northampton area, visiting relatives in Aberkenfig, commented to Mr Nelson whilst he was conducting a BIT survey at Bridgend Railway Station, that the BCBC chief executive Darren Mepham was allegedly caught describing his day at Civic offices..

office-space-gif.gif

The gentleman went on to say that the chief executive leaving BCBC in January next year, was no great loss, and apparently someone in the councils legal and complaints department, that originated from Hackney council in east London, was also leaving as they handed in their notice recently, after just 3 weeks on the job, allegedly

tenor (70).gif

£50-pound-notes

BIT Senior Partner said recently in an interview,  that licensing team head Yvonne Witchell was invited to explain how they arrived at their calculations for the current fare setting, in an email way back at the beginning of 2017 and prior end 2016, and by what formula do they use

show.gif

The public should note, the email was never replied to, as the Witchell Stick was probably busy as seen

witch.gif

As already reported on https://www.facebook.com/TAXIWATCHDOG/ in the last few days – Taxi insurance was never calculated or taken into account when fare setting by the democracy that is BCBC, thus seeing taxi drivers losing some £2,000 per annum each, as a result of an improper fare setting policy, said a spokesman for the Taxi Watch Dog Team in Wales

maxresdefault (8)

The rather angry letter in our opinion from team header Witchell, was full of discrimination content, and containment as usual from, aka -Witchell Stick

In fact the letter talks of, if BIT is mentioned in an email to them, they will not respond

A reply to Yvonne Witchell asked if Mr Nelson changed his name to BIT by deed poll would that be acceptable, Still waiting a reply on that one said Senior Partner for the organisation offering a free public service to Cabbies and the Taxi Trade

8c2b86932ce1a1a8a2a397dfb7652331

Here is an extract of the original letter dated 24-10-2018 – Our ref YW/319, from Yvonne Witchell, with the crucial BIT of news or words the majority want to hear, about bridgend taxis fares increase in 2018, for all those taxi drivers out there –

Page 5  – I would advise you that at the meeting on 23 October 2018, Cabinet approved Proposal 1 to go forward

In the 5 page document sent to Mr Nelson of the BIT organisation, as one read the response, you could see that BIT may well have, upset their spell in office, as it went down like this –

Ahmf

Page 5 – On 20 September 2018 you emailed the chief executive including a link to an external website. The council will not be accessing this site and no further response will be given

Shut-up-you-old-bat.jpg

Youtube

Page 3 – In addition , you have have admitted to recording and uploading telephone calls to Youtube

giphyewhghgjhyk

The public will be also interested to know that the Ombudsman service will access that link, as it has been forwarded as part of  further evidence, pertaining to that BIT, the learned Witchell stick talks about

tenor (71).gif

Ombudsman in fact in passing commented it was a good shout for her, during a phone conversation with BIT Senior Partner that BIT organisation news, was a very informative reference with gifs, whilst reviewing the Bridgend Taxi Trade Case

Dear Sir

I have made Mr Dave Holland aware of this latest email and can confirm that responses have been sent to BIT on 24/1/2018  and 23/2/2018 covering the content of the enquiry sent within this form.

BIT has been invited to submit an application to increase taxi fares in Bridgend but no application has been received.  As a consequence, the process to report to Cabinet will proceed without this information.

Yours faithfully

    Subject: FOI

    To whom it may concern

    On what date will the public consultation for taxi fares be published on the website as Yvonne Witchell states proposal 1 is to be advertised over the next 14 days

    How long will it take following the 14 day expiry period for Daniel Cook to provide Cabinet with the report, and then how long will it be before the report is published and then put on the Agenda for potential implementation?

    This is not vexatious communication as the taxi Watch Dog always works in the public interests as well as the taxi trade for free

    Given time is money, we suspect you can answer the FOI in 20 working days?

    Yours Sincerely

Bridgend Train Station Taxi Driver Unfair-To lose NCP station permit for misusing-Driver Tangoed

Bridgend cabbie losses the plot at Bridgend Railway station,  Cabbies says Job has gone, and now his head gone too, and so we ask the public how do you cope with madness

madashell.gif

The mature well seasoned taxi driver complained to BIT that certain taxi drivers were having a ramadamadingdong, as they were behaving like railway children, as they would not display a valid station permit on the station permit taxi rank

When one station driver was asked where his permit was, allegedly this taxi driver not displaying said – mind your own business bucko

The Bridgend driver known as Niggle who sent the complaint in, said the job had gone, and would BIT check the rules, as a free service to taxi drivers and this one

The public would be interested to know that only recently Mr Niggle of Bridgend Borough who some say his head has gone, was caught on the sofa using a social media  application called Tango

Apparently whilst drive sat on his sofa the application Camera was showing the public that Drive was too sexy for his shirt

voYr0YG.gif

As a result drive started to get comments via this application that interacted with the public

Drive could see his luck was finally in, as he could now count the public interest to at least some 20 babes

Soon Drive was interacting with these babes who were able to send him pictures too with comments

_103231712_paymentbbc

Bridgend railway station Cab drivers pay some £400 per year for a station permit, for a taxi rank by the station entry and exit doors, last issued by NCP, with many cabbies on the much sort after waiting list, for such a permit to own to this day

Subject: Bridgend Taxi Permits

Mr Nelson,

I hope your well,

Following on from our conversation I can inform you that’s any taxi on the rank MUST display there permit, The permit MUST have the correct VRN associated otherwise this is misusing the permit.

The transport police can remove the permit if the permit doesn’t match the VRN, After the conversation with yourself It is my duty to inform the car park manager that there may be drivers misusing the permits as we do have a waiting list for taxi permits its unfair for people to be misusing.

It is also stated in our T&C’s the permit MUST be displayed.

I hope the above its clear and if you do have any question please let me know.

Kind Regards

Daniel Cook creates his own democracy and removed BIT proposal document again we can report. Like something out of Peter Pan and captain Hook that special crook

Artie_you_cant_touch_this.gif

The report by Daniel Cook deliberately excludes a recognized taxi trade method to calculate the costs for a taxi driver in rural Wales,

giphyewhghgjhyk

Adopted in more than one borough as it turns out-

maxresdefault (7).jpg

http://mg.swdevon.gov.uk/documents/s2424/Appendix%20B%20-%20Taxi%20Fare%20Setting%20Policy.pdf

A formula that covers every aspect of taxi costs for the taxi trade divided by 18,000 empty miles with 5 calculations to that formula including taxi insurance costs and licensing and taxi badge costs, to reach a true costs calculation today in your borough to avoid being knocked out by an inventive report irrelevant to the taxi trade, by a crooked Policy officer of shared regulatory services, was Mr Nelson’s opinion after looking at the simple facts that the content has been removed. BIT senior Partner said he was of the opinion it was a vexatious act of further suppression by BCBC and potentially Cabinet with shared regulatory services in cahoots

Mr Cook and licensing have been ignoring Mr Nelson as a result. A fact communicated to the Council only yesterday. As many know this is not the first time they have done it. A subject recognised in the news youtube uploads covered earlier

1200x630bb.png

Daniel Cook yet again removes the formula, and the wording, and gets totally inventive to squash Drive. BIT Senior Partner said he was not surprised at all

FinderScreenSnapz001-300x252.png

Daniel Cook slaughters those that did not check their facts or use the taxi formula

191073-131-0D844C57

Even the Bridgend Taxi drives that talked of fuel going up, but did not look back or do their taxi economic home work, will be under the knife for getting it wrong

f9b5cf6da14fee4c583fecaceb227d4d0c36b73ab43d88e786280443cc65f6bc.jpg

Fact is the last time fare increase went up the fuel cost were high or near today’s levels subject to where you get fuel, as many well know

tenor (66)

The new report has some interesting wording, but it refuses to take those calculations and add them to the BIT formula or somerset formula with the explanations that support those costs with their result giving a true mileage rate

4.11 The AA Motoring Costs report shows that for a vehicle costing £17,000 when new,
the running costs per mile (based on 30,000 miles per year) has decreased from
31.8p per mile in 2011 to 30.7p per mile in 2014 (the latest figures available). It
should be noted that this reduction is largely due to fuel costs which may rise going
forward.

tenor (66)

4.12 The AA British Insurance Premium Index shows that the average annual car
insurance premium has risen from £612.19 in 2011 to £660.64 in 2018, an increase
of 8%. The table below contains data from each year since the previous tariff
increase.

The AA British Insurance Premium Index shows that the average annual car

2016 Q1 £552.45 21%
2017 Q1 £640.82 16%
2018 Q1 £660.64 3%

It should be noted that this table contains data using risks representative of the
insurance buying public for private vehicles, as it was not possible to find definitive
information specific to vehicles used for hire and reward. The prices listed are not
representative of the cost of insuring a hackney carriage or private hire vehicle but
provide an indication of the price variation of car insurance over this period.
Anecdotally, drivers have informed the Licensing Department that their annual
insurance premiums range between £1,000 and £4,000.

fare currently authorised by the Council together with a comparison with the
proposed fares and the fares authorised by a sample of other licensing authorities.

This was not in the learned Policy officers report

1. Government’s April published annual average earnings figure
2. Average of the AA pence per mile total for standing charges and running costs in
respect of petrol cars £25,000 to £32,000 and for diesel cars £26,000 to £36,000
both based on an average of 30,000 miles per annum.
3. Additional taxi insurance premium, over and above the AA insurance figure, currently
approx £1,300.
4. The cost of a Council taxi drivers badge and vehicle licence.
5. Dead mileage figure, it is thought that given the nature of Hackney Carriage work in a
large rural area like South Somerset, then this figure should be set at 40% of the total
annual mileage, in this case 18,000. 40% is also the figure that is generally
considered reasonable by HMRC.
1+2+3+4+5
The Taxi calculation
Based upon the above criteria, the calculation would be as follows:
27,456 + 12480 + 1300 + 458 divided by 18000 (dead miles) = £2.31 per mile.

37789523_2206112616289536_3230141235695976448_n
These numbers are based on removing the numbers in red for Bridgend taxi licensing fees and current insurance costs. However the calculation talks of licensing getting quotes to arrive at a figure, When Daniel Cook talks of £1,000 to £4,000 for insurance, if you were to take a more realistic figure of  say 50% of that £4000 you will have a higher mileage rate as you will have to replace the £1300 to £2000 0r more in fact

    Dear Sir
    Please find enclosed a link which talks about your report
    The report has not calculated on the numbers.
    So you got a broad cost of taxi insurance which indicates very few pay £1,000 for a new car
    Therefore your calculation is incomplete
    I have added a link below so you can make the adjustments and see what your report should rely say if you did not go crooked in accounting my proposal sent you in 2017.
    Yours sincerely

      Good afternoon
      I have today sent an email to Mr Cook who still remains in hiding. I have also sent a cc to Yvonne Witchell
      What a gay day
      Below is a link that gives more information on this interesting report that suggests taxi insurance is £4000 or as low as £1,000,
      Seems to me Mr Cook has added insurance in which could see a calculation of some £4000 never calculated by shared regulatory services before. In fact there is no calculations on how insurance for taxis has increased over the years. Or at least since his last report where cabinet rejected fares because of false accounting. As Mr Cook is based in Cardiff one would think that the increases already reported for insurance would see him exclude that fact also for more favorable suggestions that taxi fares should not go up
      Maybe some £40 per week not accounted prior
       I see no mention that the minimum wage has gone up 23% since the last rather poor and misleading report was published prior to the Cabinet meeting by shared regulatory services.
      These poor standards are definitely detrimental to me as a taxi driver, never mind the rest of the taxi drivers out there.
      crooked is a narrow path that winds into a crooked path all the way
      Yours Sincerely
      D Nelson

        Good evening
        I have uploaded some edits to the website since my last email.
        On it you will see another council that has also adopted the modern true calculation
        In fact they call it a Fare setting method policy
        Its the same formula or method in fact, that you denied the public of Mr Cook. I am assuming you would go into the Dragons den with no facts to support your proposal? It appears you need to brush up on the modern world and methods that show your departments to be years behind
        Yours Sincerely
