The growing support may double or triple next week - or month.  I think anyone arguing taxis or electric vehicles as reducing congestion doesn't understand what congestion is. The space the vehicle takes up on the road and not how it propels itself. ... [ more ]

Some councils control the number of Hackney Cabs that are allowed to operate in their towns which is why there are so many private hire vehicles about. I don't know if Ipswich uses this policy or not. I too would recommend Hawk.
