Citizens complained to the Ombudsman de Montréal about nuisances resulting from a taxi stand, near their residence.

This taxi stand is not located on the street where the citizens live, but on the side street: however, drivers often parked in front of the plaintiffs’ residence, waiting for spaces to become available on the taxi stand, on the other side.

We intervened with Arrondissement de Villeray – Saint-Michel – Parc-Extension, with Bureau du taxi et du remorquage and with Police Station #30: increased police surveillance was organized and approximately thirty Statements of Offence were issued to taxi drivers who parked illegally, on the citizens’ street.

This police operation seems to have been fruitful. We returned on location many times, at different hours, and we no longer saw taxis parked on the citizens’ street. The SPVM confirmed that it will continue to make regular spot surveillances, in order for the problem not to reoccur.
