Commercial Passenger Vehicles Victoria has finally taken a proactive approach to the illegal touting that has plagued our industry. This could not come soon enough. I have been informed that the CPVV fined 20 drivers during the Melbourne Grand Prix weekend for touting, which is the illegal offering of services. Touting poses a serious safety issue to the travelling public. I have been adamant for a long time that greater enforcement is needed to stamp out this illegal behaviour.

Many of these touts are not legitimate operators, many are driving unmarked cars and most are offering work for cash, and they are ruining Melbourne’s reputation as a safe city. I hope moving forward we can see the CPVV, or whatever they are going to be called, apply greater consistency when it comes to the regulation of the commercial passenger vehicle industry and that they protect those who abide by the law from those who break the law. Our industry and the travelling public deserve no less.
