Changes to taximeter, vehicle or fare structure
The program in the taximeter calculates fares and prints receipts based on details of the specific vehicle and the current fare structure. If the vehicle or the fare structure changes, the taximeter must be reprogrammed and verified again. Similarly, if you buy a new taximeter and install it in your existing vehicle, it will need to be calibrated and verified.
