Transport Authority issues warning to public passenger vehicle operators
The Transport Authority has issued a warning to operators of hackney carriages and route taxis that they will face prosecution for failing to abide by the colour coding scheme that was recently implemented.
The colour coding scheme was introduced on May 1 last year and taxi operators were given until March 31 this year to ensure that they comply.
It requires operators of hackney carriages to display a black and yellow checkered strip between the headlights and tail lights of their vehicles, while route taxi operators are required to display a black and white checkered strip.
The Transport Authority says all operators must also display a yellow TAXI sign on the roof of their vehicles.
It says persons seeking to renew their licences must satisfy these requirements.
