Broome Busts More Taxi Cab Violators

(BINGHAMTON, NY) – Broome County Executive Debbie Preston and Broome Security James Dadamio today announced the results of another Taxi Cab Crackdown in Broome County. Over 150 Cabs were evaluated and the action resulted in the issuance of 13 warnings for various violations, four citations for overloading violations and three suspensions.

“We continue to receive numerous complaints of potential violations of Taxi Cabs,” said Broome County Executive Debbie Preston. “Taxi Cabs should be able to conduct a fair business and make a profit. However jeopardizing the safety of those who they transport, flouting the law, and refusing service to customers unless they are going to certain neighborhoods will come to an end, or we will end it.”

Taximo Taxi Service, located at 2231 Vestal Parkway West, Vestal, has been suspended from operating within Broome County due to the expiration of and the non-renewal of the issued taxi licenses.
BU Taxi, located at 100 Roberts St #15-7, Binghamton, operated by Haval Avdel, has been suspended from operating within Broome County due to:
 Overloaded Taxi 85-19E sub 10 (exceeded the maximum occupancy of seven by transporting 13 individuals); and

 Trip Sheet – Failure to Produce (85-19B 16b).
The Broome County Security Division on May 3rd, 2013, launched a joint vehicle checkpoint with the New York State University Police at Binghamton University. The cooperative law enforcement efforts focused on the enforcement of the Broome County Charter and Code regulating Taxi Cabs.
