In a hearing Tuesday, the company offered to terminate all problem drivers and reduce its fleet from 56 cars to up to 30.

The company also said it would institute a zero-tolerance policy for its drivers if the city renews its license.

"There are 50 families that depend upon this company to support themselves, so yes, they need to stay in business," said attorney Jerry Jones.

The policy would require all drivers to sign a contract acknowledging that they'd face termination for not adhering to city code.

"There is obviously a systematic deep issue going on here that I don't know just a couple thoughts on paper are going to fix that, but as far as we are concerned, it is in the hands of the administrative law judge now, " said Code Enforcement spokesman Adam Baker.

Regulators suspended their license for failing multiple inspections and tampering with vehicle locks that would not allow customers to get out until they paid their fare.

The judge plans to release a written ruling soon.
