Its encouraging to see that the Uber driver in this case was heavily fined for refusing to take a guide dog thereby flouting the law. More power to Jade’s elbow (Jade being the guide dog owner involved). As a guide dog owner I have on numerous occasions experienced discrimination by private hire drivers (I have never used Uber) and I am all in favour of heavily fining those who refuse to comply with their legal obligations by refusing to convey guide dog owners together with their working dogs.

I’m glad they were fined for refusing to transport someone with a guide dog. Working dogs are supposed to be an exception to the “no dogs” rule, and it’s about time people realized that.
I agree absolutely with you Tori. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes. Kevin
Hard to believe discrimination still run ramped in the 21st century.
Thanks Tess. I agree with you, its hard to believe and sad to know that it does. Kevin
