Newspaper's headline here makes it sound like driver hard done by, but on reading rest of the article maybe not.

A CABBIE has been suspended for 12 weeks after he was spotted making an illegal U-turn.

The taxi driver was also accused of overcharging a passenger in June 2016.

He was also issued a "significant" fine and penalty points after failing to present personal details when asked by authorities in January 2018 following an alleged speeding offence.

The licensing sub-committee heard his explanation of events that led up to the offence.

He admitted to receiving the request for information but had failed to respond to the police as he claimed he had not been speeding.

Councillors were concerned that the driver had been using the vehicle as a taxi at the time of the speeding incident, according to minutes from the meeting in August.

They said: "Members also referred to the second complaint which the driver admitted to and were concerned that making an illegal U- turn on Bradford Street was an extremely dangerous manoeuvre and could have put himself and other members of the public in danger."

And because he claims he wasn't speeding the police and the courts should just move on and leave him alone. :roll: :roll: :roll:
