The ‘Lucky’ First Five Taxis, not lucky for us [1]

Edward Yau Tang-wah, Secretary for the Environment, told the Legislative Council’s environmental affairs panel that the legislative proposal to ban idling engines would be revised for taxis. The change would now exempt from the ban the first five taxis, rather than the first two, at a taxi stand, and taxis in a moving queue or in the process of passengers boarding or alighting.
