Yellow Cabs of Australia LTD small.jpg 2nd March, 1934,

Chairman,

Licensed Vehicles Committee,

Town Hall, Melbourne, C1

Dear Sir,

From time to time we are receiving complaints from Taxi cab users who have been imposed upon by what appears to be a Yellow Cab or a Red Cab and, on investigation, we always find that the cabs referred to are not owned by our Company, but are colorable imitations of same.

These complaints are mainly due to the fact that your Committee permits of a cab got up in a similar style to the Yellow Cab or Red Cab being licensed, and we think in the interests of the public generally, some steps should be taken to safeguard Taxi passengers.

The Transport Commission of New South Wales steadfastly refuses to license a Taxi cab that is a colorable imitation of Taxi cabs belonging to recognized Cab services. We do not know of any regulation that permits of your Committee refusing to license a cab that is got up with the intention of deceiving the public and we commend for your consideration the passing of a regulation to safeguard the public which would be another step in advancing the status of the Taxi Cab Industry in this City.

Yours Truly,

Yellow Cabs of Australia Limited,

Maurice Smith,

chairman of directors
