And it goes without saying, you pulled over safely to read and reply to the text message? :---)

But why do punters contact by text when you are likely to be driving?

Indeed.

It's got to be easier just to ring, then you haven't got to wait for a return text once the driver has actually read it.

By which time he could be many miles further away.

“How much to Burton waters?”

Between £10-12.

“App says £8-10”

Well, your app is wrong then isn’t it?

“Will you take me for £5?”

No. Now fer cough and stop bothering me.

“You’re racist “

Yes I am, if you say so.

A1 closed near Grantham/ Melton Mowbray junction today after accident. Made my fare from Lincoln to Ely quite a runaround. Good job it was on the meter! A15 was busy on the way home though! How was it for you, edders/ grandad?

Don't think we were affected much but I'm surprised you went that way if you are on the meter. :shock:

wouldn't it be more direct to go 15/17/16 down to eye then along the 47 to Guyhirne thence March and onto Ely ?

And the accident was another lorry driver who can't understand that the A1 is NOT a motorway and ploughed into a tractor!
