(A) Each duly licensed taxicab company or taxicab dispatch company shall be required to keep a log detailing all requests for services as received and shall contain not less than the following information: date and time received, address of caller, destination, cab to which call was assigned, and the fare charged therefor. The log shall be maintained in order by date at the principal place of business of each duly licensed taxicab company for the current calendar year and for the calendar year immediately preceding the current calendar year and shall be made available upon request, for review by any law enforcement agency or by the office of the City Clerk. A taxicab dispatch company shall maintain such records in such a manner that the activity of separate taxicab companies and/or leased vehicles is clearly identified.
(B) Every vehicle owner shall provide for each of his licensed taxicabs a suitable log book in which shall be kept the name of the operator, the date, time, origin, and destination, and amount of each fare. If a trip is made pursuant to a contract as may be allowed by this subchapter, the log shall show the fare charged and the identification of the contract under which the transportation was provided. The log book shall be kept available for inspection by members of the Police Department and the office of the City Clerk, and shall be preserved for at least one year from the date of the last entry at the address for which the vehicle license is issued.
(C) A taxicab company or taxicab dispatch company shall notify the City Clerk within three working days of receipt of any knowledge that a taxicab driver associated with this taxicab business has had his motor vehicle operator's license suspended or revoked by the state. Similarly, if the City Clerk shall be made aware that a taxicab driver has had his motor vehicle operator's license suspended or revoked, he shall notify the taxicab business or taxicab dispatch company which he is associated with, as may reasonably be determined by the licensing documentation, of the suspension of the licensee's taxicab driver's license by the city.
(D) Every vehicle owner and vehicle driver shall maintain within every vehicle, proof of insurance covering the vehicle with such policy limits and coverage as established by § 118.10(B)(4) and clearly identifying the vehicle(s) covered.
