CHAPTER 14 MOTOR VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC.*
Article XIII. Taxicabs and Vehicles for Hire.
Sec. 14-13-6. Suspension of permits.
The chief of police may, following twenty-four hours notice, suspend any
operator’s permit, driver’s permit or vehicle permit if:
taxicab or vehicle for hire is operating without required insurance or
registration or is being operated by an unlicensed or unpermitted
(b) A fact exists which would have been grounds for refusing to
issue the permit;
(c) There has been a violation of any of the terms of this
(d) There is damage to, or mechanical malfunction of, a taxicab
or vehicle for hire such that it cannot be operated safely.
suspension shall be lifted upon a showing that the violations have been
corrected. If no such showing is made within a reasonable time, depending on the
type of violation, the city may issue a notice of revocation and proceed as set
forth in this article. It is unlawful for the permittee to exercise any of the
rights granted under this article during the time that the permit is suspended,
provided that the notice of suspension contains facts supporting a finding that
the continued operation of the business, the continued operation of a taxicab or
vehicle for hire, or possession of a driver’s permit represents an unsafe
condition for the public, and the chief of police so concludes. (Ord. No. 1399,
§ 3 (part).)
