A National Day of Protest by Taxi and Private Hire Drivers is being organised for Tuesday 28th February calling for an urgent Public Inquiry into Transport For London who have issued thousands of Private Hire Licenses to Uber drivers without proper background checks, with fake insurance or medical certificates, who then operate unlawfully throughout the UK.
Many drivers in towns and cities across the country are frustrated that their Local Authorities seem to be powerless to take action to stop illegal Uber Drivers improperly licensed by Transport for London.
It is thought that local protests in many areas will be organised independently and these will be set up to happen on one day, Tuesday 28th February to maximise impact and media coverage.
Throughout the UK thousands of unregulated Uber drivers have been improperly licensed by Transport for London and are operating illegally, putting the Public at risk.
Customers personal security is compromised and road users are exposed to dangerous driving and accidents causing serious injuries and deaths.
This petition will be delivered to:
Prime minister Theresa May
Chris Grayling MP
