According to local news reports, taxi drivers in Hengshui City of Hebei Province are complaining that they are being forced out of their jobs. This is because the drivers are not able to register new cars after their old cars are impounded after 8 years on the road or after an accident. Starting on March 1st of this year, Hengshui Vehicles Commission is requiring that all new taxis must be alternative fuel vehicles. The Commission will not be registering new or renewed vehicles powered by gasoline.
Taxi drivers report that the new requirement is impossible to comply as there are no charge stations nor alternative fuel vehicle selling lots in Hengshui. Hengshui Transportation Bureau acknowledges that there are a couple dozen taxi drivers who are forced off the road since the implementation of the new rules. One must ask then what the local officials were thinking putting this new requirement to effect. According to a staff at the Bureau, the new policies were enacted by the Hebei Provincial Transportation Management Department. The municipal officials in Hengshui felt that the matter is out of their hands at this time but they announced that they are proactively seeking out viable solutions in coordination with other agencies.
