HC Deb 27 March 1933 vol 276 cc691-2W

asked the Home Secretary how many prosecutions have taken place under the no-crawling order, which prohibits taximeter-cabs and other motor vehicles being driven at a slow pace in busy streets?


No doubt my hon. Friend has in mind the London Traffic (Unhired Cabs) Regulations, 1927, which apply to motor cabs. Under those Regulations, during the year 1932, there were 273 prosecutions in respect of cabs loitering in the streets scheduled in the Regulations, and 112 prosecutions for stopping in those streets otherwise than on a rank or for the purpose of taking up a passenger.
