24.5 The taximeter fitted to the vehicle shall be subject to testing on demand to be carried out by the
Council, to ensure that it is calibrated to the fare table currently in force at the time.

Fair enough

24.6 Any Council seal which is tampered with, without good reason, will render the licence holder
and vehicle liable to formal action by the Council.

Again fair enough

24.7 The taximeter must be used for all fares taken and the maximum fare charged is that displayed
on the meter.

and again




but

24.8 For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in the above condition shall prevent or prohibit a driver
charging less than the prescribed fare (which is intended as a maximum fare only). The meter
must not be started until the hirer is sat in the vehicle and must be operated for the entire
journey.


(even outside the LA?)

Agree with Sussex.
Who in their right mind would do a £10 metered fare that normally takes 10 to 15 minutes, but because of a hold up it takes an hour do you still charge £10 as that is what it should have metered.

Im with you, but the LA sees no need

When Pitts rang to ask the LO said "We only charge by the mile"

WE?............we?
