The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association is campaigning in favour of compelling Hackney Carriage cabs to take blind people and their guide dogs. I have pointed out that it is already Council policy in Kettering that Hackney Carriage cabs cannot refuse to give lifts to people with guide dogs or people in wheelchairs. Kettering Borough Council is serious about enforcing those rules.

So if you witness a Hackney cab driver discriminating against people with disabilities, then that should be reported to the Council. That sort of malpractice can cost a Hackney Carriage cab driver his licence with good reason.
