474 cloned taxis caught in Shanghai this year

SHANGHAI traffic authorities said yesterday they have seized 474 cloned taxis so far this year.

Cloned taxis are those that look exactly the same in model and color as the licensed ones and they cheat customers without leaving any trace for punishment, the officials said.

The Shanghai Traffic Law Enforcement Team said it will also strengthen crackdown on illegal used-car markets where retired taxis are traded against the rules.

The officials said retired taxis must have their logos, color codes and other business equipment removed before they can be sold again.

But in real practice, retired taxi cars were sold to unlicensed cabbies without making any changes and they hit the road again as cloned taxis, said officials.
