Taxicab Safety Camera Inspection Schedule

Notice To All Interested Parties:

Attached here please find the “Taxicab Safety Camera Compliance Inspection” schedule (Download).  Taxicab Safety Camera inspections will commence on Monday, October 19, 2015 beginning at 7:00 a.m. Each listed taxicab will be required to appear for this inspection at the TLD inspection garage on the date and time indicated on the schedule. If your approved safety camera system has been ordered, but not yet installed, the medallion owner should appear at TLD Headquarters with evidence that an approved safety camera system has been purchased (sales agreement and proof of payment). Only under those circumstances will a taxicab inspection be rescheduled without a penalty.

Additionally, taxicabs presented for the semiannual state and/or compliance inspection (per 52 Pa. Code§ 1017.31) will be required to be in full compliance with 52 Pa. Code § 1017.71 (relating to taxicab safety cameras).

Also an updated list of the Approved Safety Camera Vendors to secure compliant safety camera systems, which is posted on this website under the “Resources and Forms” tab.  As previously advised, Verifeye, Inc. has been removed from this list. To date, Verifeye has not received any orders for a camera system. Therefore, the removal of Verifeye as an approved vendor should not delay any taxicab owner from adhering to the Authority’s safety camera installation deadline of October 15, 2015.

For those taxicab owners that have successfully placed an order for a safety camera system, a date for installation should be provided to you soon by the vendor, if it hasn’t been issued already. For all other taxicab owners, you are urged to place an order immediately for a compliant taxicab safety camera system to ensure compliance with the installation date of October 15, 2015 to avoid any penalties.
