PSV drivers raise their concerns

PUBLIC service vehicle licence holders took advantage of public consultations on Tuesday to raise their concerns with Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Taxi, bus and minivan operators raised issues they felt needed to be changed and how the government could step in to legislate regulations that would benefit the public as well as the PSV drivers.

While taxidrivers had asked for permits and increase in licences, most issues raised by minivan operators circled around the increase in the speed limit.

Two of the five submissions put forward by minivan operators were on the increase of minivan speed limit from 60kilometres per hour to 80kilometres per hour. Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said, "what we need to think about is to think long term, what is the long-term solution to these".
