Multiple taxis (over 18)all with engines idling waiting in illegal taxi rank from Westbourne terrace to Paddington station. It was 9:00pm and always occurs late evening because they know no one will police the situation. All 18 had engines running pumping out fumes while I’m trying to walk home. This has become a joke and not hard policy by Westminster to stop it. There is a perfectly good taxi rank at the back of the station but these folks flout the policies and jump the queue. Part of the problem is pool and limited signage in the station. If bigger clearer signs are put up in the station directing customers to the proper taxi rank it would reduce the demand and help stop this plus Westminster need staff in the evenings to police this and move them on from the double yellow lines.
