No vehicle shall be used as a taxicab or a commercial transportation vehicle until that vehicle has been inspected in accordance with the requirements of the insurance carrier providing insurance on that vehicle, and found to be in acceptable condition. Any use by a licensed taxicab business or commercial transportation business of a vehicle as a taxicab or commercial vehicle prior to its having been inspected and approved in accordance with these requirements shall constitute grounds for revocation of the license of said taxicab business or commercial transportation business. It shall be unlawful to substitute equipment or parts subsequent to inspection unless such substituted equipment or parts are in equal or better condition than the equipment or parts being substituted or replaced. (Ord. 938, 12-17-2015)
