TAXICAB SAFETY CAMERA INSPECTIONS POSTPONED
Notice to All Industry Members:
On January 16th and 24th, 2015 the TLD issued inspection notices to owners of taxicab medallions P-1 through P-436 in order to begin to confirm compliance with the new Taxicab Safety Camera Regulation, 52 Pa. Code §1017.71. All inspections scheduled pursuant to those notices are hereby cancelled.
Based upon implementation issues raised by the industry and safety camera suppliers, the Authority’s Board will consider a different schedule for compliance and inspection at its February meeting. Upon the request of a taxicab owner, the TLD will conduct safety camera inspections to confirm that a system acquired by the owner is in compliance with the regulations. All owners are urged to use the additional time provided by this notice to secure compliant safety camera systems in anticipation of the finalized inspection schedule.
