Cotswold taxi drivers can fly the flag during World Cup!
Release date: 5 July 2018
Cotswold District taxi drivers can fly the England flag during the current World Cup tournament should they wish to do so.
The Council’s Cabinet Member responsible for licensing, Cllr Mark MacKenzie-Charrington is giving his backing to the national team and wants to give taxi drivers the option of showing their support for a limited period:
“Now that the national team has advanced to the quarter finals, it’s great to see so many local people and businesses getting into the spirit of the World Cup. It’s an exciting time and we wish the team every success.
“I have no problem with allowing taxi drivers based in the District to fly small car flags while the World Cup is in progress, provided they are well-secured, do not block their vision or impact on safety in any way.”
At other times of the year, taxi drivers are only permitted to display advertising and signage in line with policy requirements.
