Editorial: Taxi!

POSTED: 11/4/13 3:01 AM

Our front-page story reveals that not all is well in taxi-land. On the contrary, politicians have been distributing so many licenses that nobody in his right mind would want to accept one anymore.

There are too many taxis and there is not enough work. The political favors – as the granting of these licenses has often been described – are now turning against those who distributed them.

A taxi license no longer feeds families, it causes endless headaches to drivers who have to be on the road for twelve to fifteen hours a day, seven days a week, only to discover at the end of the month that it really was not worth the trouble.

Something needs to be done to restructure the sector and the ball is now clearly in the park of our Minister of Economic Affairs Ted Richardson.
