EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Taxis (Taximeters, Devices and Maximum Fares) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015 (“the Taximeters Regulations”) to correct an error made in the waiting time element of the tariff, the element that determines the charge when the taxi is stopped or moving at slow speeds.

This amendment accurately reflects how the fares are currently calculated and in practice does not result in any increase in the fares being charged.

The Regulations also make a minor amendment to the sub-paragraph numbers in regulation 10(2A) of the Taximeters Regulations.

An Explanatory Memorandum has been produced and is available online alongside this Statutory Rule at http://www.legislation.gov.uk/nisr
