The role of the taxi marshal is two fold. On the one hand, they are employed to protect the public from illegal taxi services, who operate with the sole goal of inflicting massive price inflation on innocent members of the public just looking to get home. On the other hand, they are there to protect the queue from unruly members of the public, who are causing tension or intimidation with unsociable actions.
Thankfully, Priority Watch Services’s taxi marshals are highly trained professionals, who have the experience to balance both responsibilities with authority and restraint.
Illegal private hire cars and unlicensed taxis are becoming a greater and greater threat in the towns and cities of the UK and beyond. With so many relying on taxis for their transport both during the day and the night, it is an ideal sector to try and exploit. Our taxi marshals are equipped with the latest knowledge on the law and regulations regarding taxi services, allowing them to spot illegal activity where others would be oblivious.
