2016 brings the implementation of 24 hour/7 days a week deployment of Vehicle Inspection Officers aka "Hack Inspectors" to the District's streets. Enforcement staff will continue to have the responsibility to identify Title 31 violations and issue Notices of Infractions (NOIs) which are considered civil penalties. Alleged violators are afforded due process to challenge NOIs and even pursue a court hearing.
The DC Taxicab Commission promotes transparency and integrity. It is important that both the industry and consumers are able to trust that safety and fairness are a priority.
In addition, drivers, vehicle owners and the general public are encouraged to engage with the DCTC
and provide feedback, ask questions and offer suggestions.
