When people want to go home, whether it’s from a night out or an event, they can get a bit impatient. Especially when alcohol is involved. Because of this taxi ranks and queues can easily descend into disorder.
People will want to get home as soon as possible, they may jump queues, or even be so drunk they struggle to sort out a taxi. In these instances arguments and confrontation can easily come about. Left unsupervised violence could even break out.
Customer impatience also makes unsupervised taxi ranks and queues ripe for illegal pickups. Unlicensed cabs prey on drunk people looking to get home quickly, taking money from licensed taxis in the process. As well as this, unlicensed taxis don’t have accountability, so people that use them could put themselves in danger. Having taxi marshals greatly reduces the threat of illegal pickups, as they can check for proper licensing if there’s anything suspicious.
Drunk people are more vulnerable. Getting home when you’ve had a few is sometimes no mean feat. There’s no shame in needing a bit of help. Taxi marshals can offer just that. They talk to people queuing or nearby and make sure they’re not having trouble finding a way home.
All Safe and Sound taxi marshals hold a valid SIA Door Supervisor licence, meet British Standard 7960 and are screened and vetted in accordance with British Standard 7858. So you can rest assured they know how to keep. They’re also in radio contact with nearby Safe and Sound door supervisors, so if things get really out of hand, there’s extra help available.
