This past Friday, the Ministry of Transportation along with the Ontario Provincial Police and the Leamington By-law enforcement officer, conducted a traffic safety blitz targeting taxi cabs in Leamington.

A total of 18 taxi cabs were inspected and 11 were removed from the road for various vehicle defects. Of the 18 taxi cabs, 17 were found to have some sort of problem that required repairs. Several charges were laid in relation to unsafe vehicles.

Officials say that the vehicles will be allowed to return to the road, once all the necessary repairs have been completed.
