Always make sure you travel in a licensed vehicle either a Taxi or a pre booked private hire vehicle.
If using private hire vehicles always pre book them - to ensure you are insured whilst travelling - remember - pre book be insured.
Whatever vehicle you book or hail make sure it is displaying a valid licence plate and the driver is wearing a valid Council issued ID badge / licence.
Never be afraid to ask to see the driver's badge - they will be happy to show it to you.
The vehicle licence plate will display a unique number - quote this number if you need to report an incident to the council.
IT IS THE LOCAL COUNCIL THAT LICENCES TAXIS AND PRIVATE HIRE VEHICLES
NEVER GET INTO A VEHICLE THAT DOES NOT HAVE A LICENCE PLATE ON SHOW OR WITH A DRIVER THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN ID BADGE THAT HAS BEEN ISSUED BY THE LOCAL COUNCIL.
BE SAFE - BE SURE
