Head of the Citizens Union of TT Phillip Alexander said it was conflicting that Minister of Works and Transport said the PH system was illegal but yet law enforcement officers travel in PH taxis to get to work.
Sinanan recently indicated that there was the possibility of having the PH taxi system regulated.
But, in a statement on Tuesday, Alexander said, “The reality is we have more PH than H now, and instead of talking foolishness, the government needs to put things in place to register drivers and cars, and regulate the system so as to protect the traveling public.”
He said, “All the illegal talk is nonsense to distract from the fact that past and present governments have buried their heads in the sand and abdicated their responsibility to safeguard citizens and put effective public transportation systems in place.
“Regardless of how we feel about it the PH taxis are now an integral part of that system, and the government has no choice now but to regulate and manage it.”
