MANCHESTER, N.H. — Odds are you won't get a cab in the state's largest city after police sidelined all 18 licensed taxis for inspection failures or failing to show up for inspection.

Seventeen cabs in Manchester were cited for mechanical violations. The 18th was sidelined for failing to show up.

Police Lt. Maureen Tessier said Tuesday six of the 18 cabs had such severe defects, including conditions that could compromise their brakes, that inspectors pulled their registrations and they had to be towed.

Tessier says officials appreciate the inconvenience to those among the city's 110,000 residents who rely on taxis and will work with the companies to get the taxis back on the road.
