1. Was the bay marked correctly, a Taxi rank must be marked by a broken yellow line around the bay. There is no maximum length but the bay must be between 1800mm and 2700mm wide in order to comply with the regulations. The legend “Taxis” must appear along the length of the bay and on both sides where the bay is situated in the middle of a road. The legend “taxis” should be repeated at a maximum of every 12 meters. Please see information and diagrams below.
TAXI RANK - HELP PLEASE: - IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED A PENALTY CHARGE NOTICE WHILST STOPPED ON A TAXI RANK PLEASE LET US KNOW. SOME TAXI RANKS NOW HAVE A NO STOPPING RESTRICTION. THIS IS DENOTED BY A THICK YELLOW LINE AND A "NO STOPPING" SIGN. IF YOU WERE PARKED ON ONE OF THESE RANKS PLEASE USE THE PRESS BUTTON TO CONTACT US AS WE MAY BE ABLE TO ASSIST.
Below we show diagrams of the signs and bay markings which must be in situ by law and much more information that will help you decide whether to appeal against your penalty charge notice.
We have even summarised adjudicator's decisions where motorists have won. As this site took over a year to develop and cost a small fortune and in order to support our constant campaigning against this usually unfair assault on the motorist we ask for a small contribution to view the rest of this page and the entire site. For details of what we do for the motorist see the section on the home page. Members also have access to our free helpline via email if they have a specific question. Many thanks.
