Judge: Broad Ripple Village Taxi cannot operate

Co.'s license not renewed

INDIANAPOLIS - A judge has sided with the city of Indianapolis, ruling that Broad Ripple Village Taxi cannot operate.

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

In a hearing last week, the company offered concessions -- such as terminating all problem drivers and instituting a zero-tolerance policy -- in an effort to have its license renewed.

In the court filing, the judge said the company's issues are at the "level of a systemic problem that has been ongoing" throughout the company's history.

The ruling goes on to say that the company failed to prove that the ongoing issues had been addressed. 

The company has 20 days to appeal the judge's decision.
