upfront was a HGV and beyond that an exit to a small village i needed, so i kept my left indicator on to fit in the (big) gap behind the truck


this woman speeds up (in her old skoda fabia) to deny me the gap!

i have to get in and do but shes giving it large at me...

punter wants to me to double park outside Barclays whilst he draws money out to pay me. I waited about 6 minutes and then he emerged waved to me and walked off down the road !!!!!

luckily he had another taxi 2 hours later so made sure I picked him up again !!

He didn't even realise he'd done it :roll:

You will know it when it hits you.

Thankfully it didn't cause a problem last night after all.

So I withdraw my gripe. :D

never ever seen anything like it...

im in the outside lane on a dual carriageway doing 65mph and a HGV is in lane 1 doing its restricted 56mph and theres about 50ft between us and i see a red SEAT hatchback storming in from behind the truck in lane 1 who almost hits the truck and swerves (no signal/no brake light) across my lane then back again into lane 1 doing at least 90mph maybe more....going across lanes and cars till i cant see it anymore

I moved across once past the HGV and a Audi RS6 howls off after the SEAT.

This job is getting too dangerous

one can only hope the speedster does the decent thing and hits a concrete bridge and hurts only himself

Do you think the AUDI could have been the police?

we see quite a few actually and also, cops sat awaiting the end of visiting hours at the local HMP/YOI, quite comical seeing the bad boys cars come out and the cops go after them...
