April 4, 2013

Odds are you won’t get a cab in New Hampshire’s largest city after police sidelined all 18 licensed taxis for inspection failures or failing to show up for inspection.

taxiSeventeen cabs in Manchester were cited for mechanical violations. The 18th was sidelined for failing to show up.

Police Lt. Maureen Tessier said Tuesday six of the 18 cabs had such severe defects inspectors pulled their registrations and they had to be towed.

Queen City Taxi has surrendered all its operating medallions to the city clerk’s office. The taxi that wasn’t inspected belongs to Manchester Taxi Dispatch. The companies haven’t commented.

Tessier says officials appreciate the inconvenience to residents who rely on taxis and will work with the companies to get the vehicles back on the road as soon as possible.
