BATON ROUGE- City leaders are scheduled to begin discussions about regulating low-speed vehicle (LSV) taxis.

According to data available on the vehicles, an LSV travels between 25 and 35 miles-per-hour and can resemble small cars or vans.

Wednesday, the Taxi Control Board is asking the metro council to regulate LSV taxis. The group, which is often quiet and rarely heard from, wants the machinery, drivers, and operators listed with other for-hire drivers in the city's code of ordinances.
