Taxis boast new blue li­cence plates

Costa Levante News - - NEWS - By Joe Wick­man jwick­man@cb­

ALL VE­HI­CLES that have the re­quired li­cences to drive peo­ple to their de­sired des­ti­na­tions will soon have blue li­cence plates with white num­bers and let­ters.

The mea­sure has al­ready been put into ef­fect, with some taxis and VTC ve­hi­cles sport­ing the new plates. How­ever, by July 2019 all of them will have to don them.

This is the new way that the Gen­eral Traf­fic Depart­ment (DGT) has im­ple­mented to dis­tin­guish those who have all re­quired doc­u­men­ta­tion in or­der from those who carry out pas­sen­ger trans­port ser­vices il­le­gally.

Even though the mea­sure has been gen­er­ally well re­ceived by pro­fes­sion­als and users, there is a group of taxi driv­ers who are not on board with the fact that it in­cludes ve­hi­cles driven by peo­ple with VTC li­cences – who they are cur­rently en­gaged in a le­gal bat­tle with.
