SIR - It is a serious concern that too many taxis are in service whilst mechanically at fault - equally worrying are the poor driving standards displayed by numerous operators within the Bradford area.

I understand there is a need to achieve a destination with as little fuss as possible and the sniff of the next fare can prove a powerful odour - however, stupid and quite dangerous manoeuvres are routinely employed without thought for others (including the passengers onboard).

In fact, in many cases I suggest taxis run without graphics identifying which company they represent. Sadly, they seem to be their own worst advertisement.
