Article XIII. Taxicabs and Vehicles for Hire.
Sec. 14-13-11. Vehicle color scheme and markings.
(a) It is unlawful to operate a taxicab or vehicle for hire within the
city which does not have printed or placed upon doors on both sides of the
vehicle and on the rear deck of such taxicab or vehicle for hire the name and
telephone number of the operator. All such lettering shall be in letters not
less than two inches in height. In addition, the dome light markings shall read
the same as the operator’s name or fictitious name written upon the rear
doors and rear of the vehicle or only shall read “Taxi.” In
addition, every taxicab or vehicle for hire shall have printed or placed upon
the exterior in conspicuous letters of the same color not less than three and
one-half inches in height, of a color in contrast to the color of the taxicab or
vehicle for hire, the number of such taxicab or vehicle for hire, which
numbering shall be printed or placed on each side of the vehicle on the leading
edge of the front door and on the rear of the trunk.
(b) The taxicabs or
vehicles for hire of each owner holding a permit under this article shall be
numbered from number one to a number corresponding with the total number of
taxicabs or vehicles for hire for which such permit has been issued. Such
vehicle numbers shall be given to the city in writing at the time of the making
of the application for a permit and must be approved by the chief of police.
