LONDON TAXI WATCH LAUNCHED
he launch of Radio Taxis London
Taxi Watch in conjunction
with the independent charity
Crimestoppers and the Commissioner
of Metropolitan Police took place on
28th November. Present at the launch
was Stephen Greenhaig, representing
Boris Johnson and the Mayor’s Office
for Policing and Crime (MOPAC).
Standing outside of City Hall with
Tower Bridge as a backdrop, Mark
Hallace OBE, Chief executive of the
independent charity Crimestoppers,
said:
“Crimestoppers
is
the
independent charity which for the
last 25 years has provided a way for
people to report crime anonymously.
We all know that people should
report crime directly to the police;
but we also know that sometimes it is
just not practical for whatever reason,
from peer pressure to safety or simply
from hassle! Well the important thing
is to get that information across to the
police, quickly, safely and securely,
so they can investigate and take
appropriate action. That is what we at
Crimestoppers help to make happen.
Taxi drivers in London have a vital
role to play in keeping London safe
and they can do it anonymously
by ringing 0800 555 111 or on the
website crimestoppers-uk.org
“Taxi drivers are part of the very
L - R; Mark Hallace, Geoffrey
Riesel, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe
and Stephen Greenhalgh
fabric of London life, they are are
out and about at all hours in all areas
and in all weathers. They know when
something is not right and now they
can report it anonymously to make
sure the police can investigate.
Every little helps and I’m sure that
taxi drivers can help to make our
streets safer in future.”
Geoffrey Riesel commented: “I’m
very proud that we have started
London Taxi Watch. This is a winwin, if London is safe, Londoners
feel more secure and London taxi
drivers are a part of that and I appeal
to the London taxi industry to get
behind this. It only takes a moment
if you see something or something
out of place then call Crimestoppers
– it only takes a second to call 0800
555 111.”
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe was
pleased to be at the launch and said:
“From a simple conversation about
a year ago I am really proud of what
Geoffrey started and Crimestoppers
helped develop. It is a simple
idea with about 2,500 taxi drivers
involved here, spread right across
London 24 hours a day with police
always needing eyes and ears to let
them know what’s been seen so they
can take some action. Taxi drivers
are the heart of London, they have
a difficult job and they don’t always
have the easiest of customers and
we are here to support them when
that happens and it’s great to see
so many of your colleagues are
prepared to help us by letting us
know anonymously which is how
Crimestoppers works.”
Lastly it was the turn of Stephen
Greenhalgh to add his comments.
“This is an historic day as the police
are the public and the public are the
police. Today Radio Taxis drivers are
here to provide that contribution. It is
truly essential part of making sure that
this remains the safest capital city on
earth. It is fantastic to represent Boris
Johnson and the Mayor’s Office
for Policing and Crime (MOPAC)
and remember these words that the
police and MOPAC are right behind
you.”
OPERATION SEAFORD NEEDS YOUR HELP
O
by Paul Maleary, Detective Inspector 2330
peration Seaford relates to offences where
criminals are utilising Taxis in a scam to collect
significant sums of money from elderly Essex residents.
Often the suspect will ask for the package to be dropped
in East London. Latest figures for the whole county
show that in November 66 people, mainly aged over
70, have been contacted by tricksters trying to get steal
large sums of cash by claiming that they are police or
bank officials. Eight of the 63 people targeted fell for
the tricksters’ claims and have lost a total of £39,600,
including an elderly woman in Leigh who was tricked
into handing over £24,000. The suspects claim to be
police officers or bank officials and tell people that
their bank accounts have been infiltrated by fraudsters.
They ask their victims to draw out large sums of cash
for forensic checks, for safe-keeping or so that they
can help with an internal investigation into fraud at the
bank. During 2013 452 thefts and attempted thefts have
been reported in Essex. Although they in the west of the
county, around Loughton and Buckhurst Hill they have
quickly spread to the south and more recently to areas
in the north and north-east, including Harwich, Clacton
and Sible Hedingham.
Essex Police say that whilst taxis are used to courier
items from “Point A to Point B” there must be a point
where the drivers are suspicious. Some taxi companies
have informed the police regarding suspicious activity and
the police have successfully worked on the information
and carried out arrests. However, it has also been the
case that some drivers have been arrested and only after
a period of time in custody we have established that they
had no involvement.
How taxi drivers can help
• Verify the details of the person requesting
the collection
• Obtain full details as given by the requester
including home address
• Establish from the person who they are collecting
from who has requested the delivery
• Note anything suspicious
• Inform the police!

The biggest but still the best
A successful taxi support company which employs 55 people and provides
crucial services to London’s illustrious black cab industry has relocated
to new, larger premises at Blackhorse Road.
Originally founded by Micky Ascott around 1980 the name changed to
Ascott Cab Company in 1991 and has enjoyed great success ever since
and is now the largest independent taxi service firm in the area.
This proudly independent ‘one-stop taxi shop’ caters for drivers of
London’s iconic black cabs by providing vital services including Taxi Sales,
with the unrivalled Tower Gold Warranty, Specialist Servicing, Diagnostics
and Warranty Repairs, MoT’s, Cab Rentals, Digitax Meter Hire and our
leading insurance approved
body shop. We offer NSL pre-tests, which prepares the vehicle and owner
for the stringent government licencing and inspection procedures. Also,
Ascott Cab Company has its own Apprenticeship Scheme associated
with Bromley College on day release investing in youngsters for the future.
On site is Quotax Insurance services tailored specifically for taxi drivers.
This family run company, who we are proud to be associated with, aims
to offer everything that the professional cabbie needs in the most friendly,
economical and convenient manner possible.
Over half of Ascott’s 55 dedicated staff is drawn from the surrounding
area with 33 employees living within five miles of the new premises, which
are located just 200 metres from the former site in Evelyn Street. The
move forced upon us due to the redevelopment of the existing site has
encouraged the company to invest over a £¼ million in this expansion
project, which has enabled the company to increase the number of
ramps in the workshop from 15 to 19. This means that the 18 fully trained
technicians are able to accept an increased workload whilst operating more
efficiently, and that waiting times for customers have been significantly
cut. The workshop is also equipped with fully computerised diagnostics
systems.
Nearby, at 202 Ilderton Road is the location of our full body shop facility,
which boasts a further 16 specialist body shop technicians undertaking
personal, insurance and non-fault repair work. Its state-of the-art facilities
make for high quality workmanship and a rapid turnaround, which means
minimum downtime and a hassle-free experience for working cabbies.
The Ascott Cab Company has built an unparalleled reputation for customer
service and integrity, and enjoys an extremely loyal client base among
London’s taxi driving community.
For more details call 020 8692 1122 or visit the website at
www.ascottcab.com The new premises are located at Blackhorse Road, SE8 5HY
Ascott Cab Company would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our customers for their continued
support, present and future.

WORLD’S FIRST POTATO
SCENTED JACKET TAXI
O
ffering free hot jacket potatoes that are cooked
on board in five minutes McCain has specially
designed a ‘Jacket Taxi’ which toured six UK
cities for five days from 18 November. Passengers
enjoyed a free ride and were offered a piping hot
jacket potato, made in the taxi, at the end of their
five minute journey-the time it takes to cook the McCain Ready Baked Jacket.
McCain’s potato experts have used their specialist knowledge to recreate
the warm delicious scent of oven-baked potatoes which wafted out from the
giant jacket potato on the roof of the taxi. This meant passers-by were also
enjoying the appetising aroma of warm jacket potatoes as it travelled around
London, Birmingham, Manchester, York, Leeds and Bristol with its sunset
yellow and orange exterior creating a warm glow to everyone it passes. The
production of the taxi took five weeks to complete and several potato designs
were considered for the giant steaming Ready Baked Jacket which sits on
top of the taxi. It has also been adapted inside to house the cooking facilities
needed for the perfect McCain Ready Baked Jacket in just five minutes, as
well as featuring a flip down tablet screen from the roof.
Charles Spence, a ceurogastronomist, added: “People across the UK will
certainly do a double take when this delicious-smelling cab drives past them.
There is a direct correlation between the smell of our favourite foods, such as
a warm baked potato, and how it heightens our level of enjoyment when eating
them. I can’t wait to see how people react to the scent as it wafts through the
streets of the UK.”
T
HUGE INVESTMENT IN
STREET LIGHTING
ransport for London (TfL) has agreed a new energy efficient lighting
programme to help reduce the cost of lighting the TfL Road Network
(TLRN), while also doing its part to reduce CO2 emissions across the
capital. It is one of the largest ‘invest to save’ strategic road lighting projects
ever undertaken in the UK, which will see improved reliability and lower
operating costs all contributing to better and safer roads.
Across London, TfL has some 52,000 street lights, and as part of the Mayor’s
pledge to cut CO2 emissions, TfL has begun implementing the energy saving
plan which will be delivered over the next three years. By 2016, the programme
aims to reduce associated CO2 by around 9,700 tonnes a year and contribute
towards approximately £1.85m of savings for TfL a year. The programme will
also reduce energy consumption by more than 40 per cent by 2016, compared
to the current levels.
CENTRAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (CMS)
FOR STREET LIGHTING ON THE TLRN
This will allow TfL to remotely monitor and manage street lighting and
dynamically control levels of lighting depending on use. By adjusting the
lighting levels to be aligned better with traffic flows and road usage at different
times of night TfL will significantly reduce its energy consumption and carbon
emissions, without compromising road user safety or security. The system will
remotely record lighting failures, enabling maintenance crews to ensure that
lighting levels are restored without delay.
REPLACING CONVENTIONAL LIGHTING
WITH LIGHT EMITTING DIODES (LED)
This will initially see 35,000 street lights updated through both targeted
investment and TfL’s regular streetlight maintenance by 2016. The new LED
technology will be rolled out across the majority of TfL street lights during the
next ten years. Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “With tens of thousands
of lights marking the way on our road network it makes complete sense to
focus energy and resources on bringing them up to 21st century standards.
This is the largest investment to modernise street lighting on major roads in
our capital’s history and will not only cut carbon emissions and save money
but it will also lead to even better and safer roads for Londoners.”

that things are really clicking into gear. Hailo

GARDEN BRIDGE CONSULTATION
arden Bridge is a planned pedestrian bridge over the River Thames.
Conceived by the actress Joanna Lumley in 1998 and designed by
Thomas Heatherwick, working with Arup on a commission from Transport
for London, it is planned to feature trees and gardens. 30 metres (98 ft) across
at its widest point, it would run from near Temple station, as a continuation
of Arundel Street, on the north bank to near the Southbank Centre.
If you’ve not responded to the Garden Bridge consultation then you still
have time to do so. The Garden Bridge will potentially affect the Temple
Place taxi refreshment shelter, the rank for this shelter and the routes around
the area, so it is important that you read the consultation and submit any
comments you have.
Further details about the proposal are available on the TfL Consultation
Hub https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/rivercrossings/garden-bridge and a
Q&A document about the new bridge is available at https://consultations.
tfl.gov.uk/rivercrossings/garden-bridge/user_uploads/gb-consultation-hubqa.docx-2 and a map showing the proposed location of the new bridge is
available at https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/rivercrossings/garden-bridge/

Remember – You saw it first in the Globe!
EDDIE CROSSLEY RETIRES FROM
RICHMOND ROAD CAB CENTRE
any in the trade will know Eddie Crossley,
proprietor of Richmond Road Cab Centre.
After 47 years of working not only in fleet
garages, but also promoting the trade’s interests
through the LMCPA, the Taxi Board and through
his involvement in The Worshipful Company of
Hackney Carriage Drivers, which he was Master
of in 2012, Eddie has now decided to retire. The
garage and fleet have been in Eddie’s family for
many years; Eddie Crossley’s great-grandfather
was a horse-drawn-bus driver before progressing
to the hansom cab, and the business of running
cabs has been in his family ever since. Richmond
Road Cab Centre will continue to offer taxis for
rent, pre test work and overhauls, servicing and
repairs as the new owner, Sabri Keski, and team
from Forest Taxis take on the business.
During his years at Richmond Road Eddie
helped build the business to have one of the largest
fleets of taxis for rent in London. The workshops
have also expanded over the years and today
offers extensive workshops with a team of highly
skilled staff - who are remaining with the new
owner. You could say that taxis are in Eddie’s
blood as he was a working licensed taxi driver –
like his father, grandfather and great grandfather
before him. His son Paul, who has also worked at
the garage, holds a Hackney Carriage licence too.
Eddie was one of the members of the WCHCD
invited to drive his Gold Cab in the procession
to Buckingham Palace on the occasion of the
Queen’s Golden Jubilee and he was back there
again in 2012 in his role as Master for a Garden
Party.
Eddie’s extensive knowledge of the trade and
T
18 December 2013
Eddie Crossley
its history has fired enthusiasm for many in
the trade and beyond. At one particular dinner,
the Firefighter Massey Shaw annual dinner,
the Master Firefighter presented Eddie with
a framed photograph featuring hackney cabs
commandeered during the war as fire fighting
vehicles. This was made in recognition of the
London Taxi Trades contribution to the London
Fire Brigade when they were in need of help due
to their lack of available Fire Engines during the
war. During the Second World War, taxis played
an important role in helping the fire service,
amongst other roles. The drivers were trained as
firefighters and were known as the AFS, Auxiliary
Fire Service. They specialised in fighting small
blazes in the back streets of the capital, often there
on the scene before the large fire engines arrived
thanks to the drivers KoL. Some of the taxis used
for fire fighting came from his grandfathers fleet
in the East End. Eddie has also supported some
of the trade’s charity events over the years and is
a great admirer of the annual Magical Taxi Tour.
Eddie is known as a gentleman within the trade
and although the business is now sold Eddie is
not giving up all his connections with the cab
trade. His wife Maureen has also worked along
side him keeping the accounts for Richmond
Road; now she and Eddie will have some time
to enjoy other pursuits, including their love of
ballroom dance. Eddie told our reporter: “I have
sold my business to Sabri Keski of Forest Taxis
Ltd who owns and runs a taxi fleet and garage
so knows the trade. All my staff will remain and
my drivers will not be affected by the change of
ownership so owners and drivers will still get the
same high standard of work they are used to. I
stayed on to hand over for a short time but now I
am looking forward to enjoying Christmas for the
first time without the worry of cabs being stuck
in the snow!! I will continue with the WCHCD as
this has been a major part of my life and I would
not wish to lose the friends I have made there.” Firefighter Massey Shaw dinner
ANNUAL DINNER DANCE HELD BY TDoY
he Taxi Driver of the Year Charity Fund
Dinner was held at the Holiday Inn
Kensington on 30th November and during this
event the Prize Draw Winners were drawn. A
four course dinner was served with half a bottle
of wine for each guest and was followed by
coffee or tea and muffins and Danish pastries.
Chairman, Russell Poluck, welcomed everyone
to the 41st annual dinner dance and said how
lovely it was to see so many new friends and of
course, old friends. The Chairman said: “Life
is not easy for anyone, but in the cab trade we
have to say we are the lucky ones and are able to
remember those less fortunate than ourselves... to
help someone else we have achieved something
good.” Russell thanked all those that supported
the charity and gave donations and sponsorship.
He continued by saying that all proceeds raised
over the last few weeks and on the night of the
event were being distributed among the charities
here. Following dinner and the prize draw guests
danced to “Fraternity” a five piece live band.
The Taxi Driver of the Year Charity Fund would
like to thank Mr John Anderson, Dial-A-Cab,
Dagenham Travel, KPM, Quotax Insurance, Mrs
Audrey Sherry, Tradex Insurance Ltd, Ubiquitous
and Totes for their sponsorship of the evening.

UNCLAIMED TOYS LOST ON TFL’S NETWORK BRING
CHRISTMAS CHEER TO LONDON’S CHILDREN
A
mountain of new, unclaimed children’s toys
handed in to Transport for London’s (TfL)
Lost Property Office this year have been given to
The Salvation Army to donate to children in south
London so they get a gift this Christmas. TfL
gave over 500 lost toys to the Deptford branch of
The Salvation Army, for their Christmas Present
Appeal. The Salvation Army will now work with
Lewisham Council to distribute the toys to those
who will appreciate them most and may otherwise
have gone without this Christmas. Paul Cowan,
Operations Performance Manager of the Lost
Property Office, said: “Although it is a shame
that these toys were not reclaimed by the original
owners, the thought that they will now bring
smiles to the faces of many children who might
otherwise have gone without is heartwarming.
The fact that so many brand new toys have been
handed in is also a testament to the honesty of the
travelling public in London. The team here work
extremely hard throughout the year to deal with
hundreds of thousands of items of lost property
and it is great to see their efforts highlighted once
again through this donation to such a worthy
cause.”
Captain Kevin Stanbury, of The Salvation
Army’s Deptford Community Church, said: “This
with local council outreach workers to ensure
that the toys go to those who are most in need.
As a Church and charity we look to be there for
people when they need us, not just at Christmas
but all year round, by offering compassionate
support and practical help which we hope our toy
appeals are one example of. We hope families and
children who were facing a bleak Christmas can
now feel the joy and happiness that the season
should bring.”
donation from Transport for London is invaluable
in allowing us to provide toys to children and
families who would otherwise go without this
Christmas. The Salvation Army work closely

GLOBAL NEWS
US CAB DRIVER KIDNAPS HIMSELF!
A 32-year-old cab driver from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has been arrested for
playing a hoax by locking himself in the boot of his car and calling for help
using his mobile phone. When released, he told the police that he had been
robbed by three people and then locked in the boot. While making the call,
the driver said that he didn’t know where he was so police and county sheriff
deputies searched extensively for the cab.
The sheriff’s department helicopter was called in to aid in the search and
the vehicle was finally found several hours later, just before darkness fell.
The driver was released from the boot and taken to a nearby hospital. When
quizzed by police, he later admitted to having financial problems and told
police he faked the carjacking for financial reasons – hoping for cash from
newspapers in return for the story. He got his publicity though when papers
picked up the story. Sadly, though, not only did he not get paid but he has
also been charged with wasting police time!
MOSCOW MINISTER’S CAR USED AS TAXI!
A BMW with tinted windows and blue flashing light on the roof stops on
Moscow’s main Tverskaya Street. “Vere to Guv?” the driver asks - or the
Russian equivalent - and after agreeing a rouble price to the equivalent of
£5 or so, he whisks someone to work in unexpected style. It turns out to be
a government minister’s car and as is the case with virtually every other
underpaid or unemployed driver in the country, furtive private use of the
vehicle is a main source of income! He might make an extra £20 or so a day
moonlighting between the minister’s appointments and although he may
suspect that his boss knows what’s going on, he naturally doesn’t discuss it
with him.
Another man at the wheel of a clean, but ageing Russian Volga, is the
personal chauffeur of a senior police officer. His boss, however, actively
encourages him to make what he can on the side. He knows full well that
no one can survive on his official salary. From coaches to ambulances to
thousands of private cars choking the capital’s streets, all have become
unofficial taxis. Although registered taxi drivers moan about the ‘Chastniki’
(minicabs) who spend their spare time ‘bombing’ as it’s known in Russian,
they have their own territory in the main tourist areas at hotels, restaurants
and railway stations. In the city centre, yellow cab drivers seem loath to
interrupt their snooze or put down their detective novel to take a fare of less
than £7. There, at least, if someone else wants to get snarled for hours in
traffic jams for less money, that’s their business!
Other places remain dangerously off limits and the novice Chastniki
risks a barrage of obscenities, threats or worse from regulars who jealously
protect their turf. An unmarked minibus belonging to the French medical
relief organisation Medicins Sans Frontieres, recently had its tyres shot out
as it pulled away from Moscow’s International Airport with genuine invited
guests from overseas. This incident was simply a case of mistaken identity,
since the airport’s notoriously brazen taxi mafia assumed the vehicle was
poaching and decided to teach the driver a lesson!
Meanwhile, the passengers’ part in the transaction is simple enough. If
they are willing – and stupid enough - to take the risk of travelling with
strangers, put your arm out, get ready to haggle over the price and bear in
mind that riding with more than one person is a known invitation for trouble
especially when under the influence of liquor. In fact, the greatest downside
of an activity that seems to feed and clothe a hefty part of the population is
that Russia being Russia, too many drivers regard their new passenger as
fair game for a 40 minute tirade about the state of the country. At least that
part is the same as London…
PASSENGER SAVES HIMSELF AFTER
TAXI DRIVER HAS FATAL HEART ATTACK…
Back to the US for this month’s final tale. American taxi passenger Mike
Nelson’s worst fear became reality when his driver collapsed at the wheel
of his cab following a heart attack while the cab was still travelling along
the highway. David Shaffer was taking the fare from Bismarck, Missouri
when he suddenly collapsed and died. The out-of-control taxi travelled on
for a mile before Mike could manage to stop it. Amazingly, the 1995 Dodge
Caravan struck no other vehicles and was not damaged. Mike Nelson was
also unhurt.
According to Highway Patrol reports, Mr Shaffer picked his passenger
up and was taking him home with the two men chatting about old cars.
Suddenly the passenger looked out the window and felt the taxi begin to
veer towards the side of the road. He looked over and saw Shaffer slumped
over the wheel while they were heading straight towards an overpass…
Nelson grabbed the wheel and tried to control the cab, however, Shaffer was
a very big man and he had trouble trying to steer while keeping Shaffer’s
foot was off the accelerator pedal. He tried turning off the ignition, but that
just locked the steering wheel, so he quickly restarted the engine.
Mr Nelson eventually managed to stop the taxi, grabbed the cab’s radio
mike and began shouting “emergency, emergency.” Jo-Ann Martin, a nurse
on her way home with her husband, stopped at the scene and said she felt a
very faint pulse. As they prepared to try basic resuscitation, an emergency
medical technician arrived on the scene and took over, but it was then too
late. Sadly the driver had died. Highway Patrolman Doug Hoopman told
Global News that it was lucky the passenger was in the front seat instead of
the back seat “…as he would have been in your London cabs, or we’d have
had an even worse tragedy.”
Mike Nelson, looking shaken and extremely upset, told us: “There was
an overpass coming close and the cab was headed right for it. Another few
seconds and I wouldn’t have been here either.”
David Shaffer’s boss was Bill Schumacher. He added: “We have so many
passengers who knew him only by his call sign of 20 and many would
actually ask if he was free to take them! The drivers also loved the guy.
He was the one driver everyone wanted to go onto the taxi stand with.” He
ended by saying: “We’ve lost a good one ... our customers have lost a good
one too.”
