At the time a taxicab license is issued and annually thereafter the taximeter shall be inspected and tested by the city to determine if it complies with the specifications of this chapter and applicable rules. If it is in proper condition for use, the taximeter shall be sealed by the commissioner. Upon complaint or as part of a random inspection by the department, a taximeter may be again inspected and tested.
The licensee must deliver the taxicab with the taximeter attached for inspection and testing as requested by the commissioner. The commissioner has the authority to suspend the license and the taxicab vehicle if the licensee fails to bring the taxicab for requested taximeter inspection.
The commissioner may by rule set taximeter inspection fees.
