LTU supports calls for a public inquiry into Transport for London, an organisation that is currently unaccountable
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.
Towns and Cities are gridlocked with congestion which is causing toxic air pollution (putting drivers, cyclists and pedestrians at risk) which has increased because Transport for London have issued thousands of Private Hire Licenses to Uber drivers without proper background, medical or insurance, checks who then operate illegally throughout the UK, ignoring traffic regulations and road signs, causing accidents and traffic chaos.
TFL have made many improper decisions in relation to Taxis and Private Hire, including the issuance of 2500 Private Hire Licenses each month without proper checks, and the London Taxi Age limit and previous failed emissions strategies which have not complied with Public Law.
TFL is a Public body who receive £11 billion a year in taxpayers money, yet are accountable to no one;
There is an urgent need for a Public Inquiry to expose the improper decisions which do not comply with Public Law and have resulted in injuries and deaths.
There should be an immediate suspension of TFL Private Hire License Applications and the Uber Operators License pending that Public Inquiry.
Please sign the petition and share by email and tweet with as many people as you can.
It would be helpful if people can also email their MP with this article and ask them to support the National campaign for a Public Inquiry into TFL.
This petition will be delivered to:
- Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party
Theresa May MP
- Chris Grayling MP
