First Arrests Made of Scofflaw Taxi Drivers by Ramapo Police Department Traffic Safety Unit

By Rockland Daily Staff

This weekend, the Ramapo Police Department's new Traffic Safety Unit (TSU) officers made their first arrests of taxi drivers who chose to ignore the new Town of Ramapo Taxicab Law.

The new TSU unit was introduced at the end of January by Rockland Daily here after taxi drivers were issued their final warning about compliance back in December, as reported on by Rockland Daily here

Two individuals are now facing charges under Local Ordinance 255-4,. Their cases will be heard in the Town of Ramapo Justice Court. The Ramapo Police Department stresses that taxi operators interested in picking up passengers in the Town of Ramapo must have Ramapo Taxi Stickers. 

The Ramapo Police TSU unit conducts general and directed traffic enforcement every day. Of the numerous traffic stops this past weekend, eight revealed drivers with suspended licenses. They were promptly arrested and processed for the violation.
