Taxi drivers in Bath and North East Somerset could be banned from using satellite navigation systems.
The council overseeing them says they should know their way around the area without needing a device to help them.
But many drivers say the idea is ridiculous.
Ken Goodwin reports.
The proposal from BANES Council has prompted a strong response on the ITV West Country Facebook page. Here is a taster of your comments:
Bath and North East Somerset Council (BANES) is proposing a ban on the use of sat nav in taxis. It says taxi drivers should know the area well enough without having to rely on the devices. The new licensing conditions would also include smarter dress regulations.
A final decision will be made in the next few months.
