  1. I'll wait to see what the end result will be like but I was staggered when I found out that the council has agreed to shrink westernbank in favour of widening the footpaths! This road was already busy, now with the roadwords its having a knock on effect all around that area resulting in gridlock every day. Like I say we'll have to wait to see the finished plan but I'm certainly not holding my breath.
  2. This is something like the third burst water main in as many years around this bit of Glossop Road, clearly whoever is doing the repair don't know what they are doing, this is the busiest part of Sheffield and at the moment it's a Joke.
  3. Crookes main road is a death trap, drivers swerving all over to avoid pot holes. Meanwhile Amey seem to think footpaths that don't require immediate attention should be the center of all their focus. Must admit, they (Amey) started off well but imo have drastically gone downhill, some of their recent work has been awful, a newly installed lampost falling over is one example. Get the main roads sorted amey!!
  4. I don't come on this forum much these days, partly because trolls like Kidley who when I last saw on here about two and a half years ago was having the EXACT same rant as he/she is doing now, wow! One of those articles was from February as well...wow! Council in checking Taxis shocker (lol)... they do it all the time for many many years, the Star is just filling the paper because it's full of non important news, with extremely poor journalist who look on forums like this to gather their stories. Oh and Kidley, it's their not there.
  5. As I've said, City will not let them because it is conflict of interest, and if your mates are that disgruntled about working for City then surely they'll be only too happy to switch over to Uber on a permanent basis? Taxidrivers do like to moan though, City might have tough guidelines for their drivers, personally I think this is a good thing, City have also invested a lot of money making sure they are bang up to date with all the latest technology to help their customers, and the feedback from them is usually positive.
  6. No City WILL let them go, they can try Uber out and return, but they will then have to join the waiting list like every other person wanting to join the firm. What City will not tolerate is a driver working for both, ie having a City radio whilst also working for Uber, this would be seen as conflicting and the driver will not be able to offer City his full service whilst taking Uber jobs. I don't see an issue with that myself, and doesn't really matter if they are self employed, there are rules within the company.
  7. Just to clarify some of the inaccurate quotes on here, City did buy out Mercury partly because of the threat by Uber and the fact the owners at Mercury wanted out and took up the offer. Another thing, drivers aren't being held to ransom at CityTaxis, they can go to Uber and try them out and if it doesn't work out they will be allowed to come back, but will have to join the waiting list (if there is one). Drivers who go to Uber and still use a City radio if caught will not be allowed to work for City again, seems fair to me. Uber are a totally different ball game, I do mainly airports and a dutch guy I spoke to the other day said they have been kicked out of Holland because of some irregularities, same in Spain and Germany (i think) Will they survive in England? who knows but the London cabbies are putting up quite a fight. Time will tell.
  8. This may sound horrible but people like you who sit in their little bubble and jesture are just as bad, rough with the smooth mate, at your age why let it bother you anyway?
  9. So true, I know a couple that couldn't wait to move away from Walkley, ended up moving near Shirecliffe and they said it's loads better. Good and bad in every area, and you also get what you pay for, but decent areas are always targeted by the scrotes as well.
  10. I've been on a few AI, and tbf they were great, I did however did my home work via Trip Adviser to make sure they all had decent standards. If you have kids It's a no brainer imo.
  11. What has that got to do with this thread? :hihi: I thought you called your mum anyway?
  12. I think someone had an accident near SWFC training ground and received facial injuries.
  13. I've seen Walkley Dave's advice, he say's don't ignore, but I've briefly looked around the net tonight and everyone says ignore. BTW he didn't ticket me, he just threaten too, I just want to know if he has the power to ticket me or if it's another car park cash cow that is meaningless.
  14. So basically he doesn't have any authority then, because it is private land therefore not enforceable? Silly little bloke, he's kind of answered my question lol
