LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A Lafayette taxi company may shut down soon.

Lafayette Consolidated Government will indefinitely suspend all permits for Dixie Cab Inc. on Oct. 30 unless the city-parish council grants the business’ appeal Tuesday.

The reason? Dixie Cab has 966 outstanding Redflex traffic camera tickets, amounting to nearly $56,000 owed.

Chief Administrative Officer Lowell Duhon tells The Advertiser (https://bit.ly/2es6B2N ) the tickets go back to the beginning of the program in the late 2000s.

In his appeal, Dixie Cab owner Salah Yousef says individual drivers are responsible for any traffic violations they commit. However, Duhon says nothing prevents Yousef from paying the tickets and then seeking reimbursement from drivers.
