We refer to Mr Huang's letter, "Fined for parking at taxi stop" (Lianhe Zaobao, Nov 20).
The ICA taxi stand was converted to a taxi stop on 31 August 2010 to improve traffic accessing the public carpark beside the ICA building. Taxis are allowed to wait at taxi stands to pick up passengers but they are not allowed to wait at taxi stops. This change was communicated to the taxi drivers through their taxi companies about two weeks before our implementation.
In addition, the taxi signage was replaced immediately to show that it is a taxi stop.
We thank Mr Huang for his feedback and will ask taxi companies to remind their taxi drivers again of this change.
