Taxi company putting pedestrians at risk



Have your SayI’m wondering why must United Taxis park across the footpath (totally blocking it) when picking up a fare on Waiuku’s Queen Street. It creates a potentially dangerous situation for anyone having to walk out onto the road to get around the van, and is then in the path of oncoming traffic hurtling along the same road at above the legal speed limit. Can’t they park parallel to the footpath? Not acceptable, Taxi Company!
Disgruntled Senior Pedestrian,
– The Post Newspaper raised this question with the taxi company last week, but they did not respond before deadline yesterday – Editor.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
