Is Your Council on This List?

New taxi laws to prevent discrimination against wheelchair users only count in areas where an S167 list is in place. Many areas still haven’t made a list, allowing discrimination to go unpunished. If a local authority is listed below, it means that they have no firm plans to make an S167 list the law. You can help to change this by writing your local councillor. Is your area listed here?
