Katy Jackson made this Freedom of Information request to Stoke on Trent City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Stoke on Trent City Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Stoke on Trent City Council,

Can you please let me know how many taxi drivers in Stoke have been fined for parking in bus lanes to wait for passengers.

Also any comlaints that have been made to the council in this area.

As I know there are Hackney licsened taxis that have the authority to, but I have identified complaints by other drivers.

I rung up the council who told me that they were bringing the issue to the board asap. They said that they were considering designating more areas to the drivers.

Yours faithfully,

Katy Jackson
