Almost 30 taxi drivers contravene pedestrian crossing in just four hours



Almost 30 taxi drivers contravened a pedestrian crossing in a Staffordshire town in just four hours.

Police say they saw a total of 27 private hire vehicles commit the offences in Stone today – with one driver doing it four times.

Some of the offences involved drivers completely blocking the crossing.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said:  “27 private hire drivers are about to receive legal forms through the post for contravening a pedestrian crossing in Stone.

“Each offence carries three points and a fine. One driver did it 4 times. This puts pedestrians at risk. It’s not acceptable and won’t be tolerated.

“The pedestrian crossing offences from the last post were all committed in a 4 hour period and involved some drivers totally blocking the crossing.

“We have previously advised drivers but were ignored. We don’t ask twice.”
