Taxi overload

The other afternoon I was at the railway station and was amazed to see 19 black cabs waiting for one elusive £3 fare to Newbold. What a waste of time and effort and petrol.

Three on-demand taxis would have been quite sufficient. Remember there are advance-booked minicabs as well, fishing in the same shallow pool.

What on Earth possessed Chesterfield Borough Council to license the other sixteen?
