Ensure you have the means to pay for your journey before getting in a vehicle and check in advance whether cards are accepted.
Some providers enable you to share the journey details with a friend through an app. If this capability isn’t available, there are several applications that enable you to do this yourself, including Hollie Guard, Google Maps, WhatsApp, and more.
If a driver provides a service outside of their licensing remit, there may be no record or details of the journey. If there is an issue with your journey then you may make a complaint directly to an operator, but it is also important to report the matter to Warrington Licensing.

“I want to reassure women and girls in Cheshire that their safety is taken extremely seriously by the police and partners. Violence against them is not their fault. Total responsibility lies with the people who commit these crimes and this funding will be key in helping to change attitudes and behaviours.” John Dwyer, Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire
"We have taken proactive measures to identify and target predatory behaviour, and intervene appropriately to help users of the Warrington town centre feel safe. We are sending a clear message that violence and harmful behaviours against women, and any vulnerable users of the town centre, will not be tolerated."
