Almost thirteen thousand criminal record checks still to be completed on Uber drivers with alleged fake DBS certificates.
Didn't Helen intimate she couldn't live with herself if checks on licensed hackney carriage drivers should fail to detect the presence of undesirable characteristics.
How is this litany of failure to be halted ?
Sexual assaults, criminally negligent driving, highly dubious business practices, indifference from government tax authorities, probable financial bribery in many spheres of authority and so on and so on.
The TfL office in charge of Taxi and private hire is an utterly worthless organisation.
It's dragged our trade into the sewer. It seems to be a plague of pestilence emanating from America.
Such a disregard for decent business and human ethics, their desperation, a mantra of money /profit at all costs, seems to run through so many of those gig/tech style companies.
It won't be until the affluent upper middle classes experience this level of absurdity and diabolical dishonesty and lack of ethics that things may change.
Or a sense of 'stop this insane carousel of profit and to hell with a sense of decency '.
Do we have to wait till someone’s wife/daughter/sister/mother is raped and murdered before action is taken?
Taxi Leaks Extra Bit :
In a reply to an FOI received earlier this week, TfL admitted they haven't bothered to contact all the 13,000 Uber drivers thought to have fake DBS certificates.
They admitted they have only written to just 2,621 private hire drivers, saying that they will need to obtain a new enhanced DBS check through GB group.
There has been no mention of any revocations, or suspensions while this process is ongoing.
Later this week we heard 5 Uber drivers -Michael Julien, 50, Dan-Alexandru Pasat, 29, Kamlesh Sagoo, 62, Ibrahim Tekagac, 35, and Mihai Toader, 32- were convicted of fraud and theft. All received prison sentences 4 were suspended sentences.
These drivers are still registered on the TfL licence checker, as private hire drivers.
So, that means not only do we have approx 10,300 Uber drivers who have been driving -at least since January- with fake DBS results, we also have convicted Uber drivers, some with prison records out there driving the public.
Let's also not forget about the Exhibition Road/Uber driver incident....9 injured...and it's all been hushed up???
Trouble is, some people actually know what happened and it will come out. Remember "#BillGate" Helen?
Helen, what does an Uber Driver have to do to get their licensed revoked. Are TfLTPH so scared of Uber’s legal team, that you would over look these incidents?
