Taxi driver attacked by drunk passenger as he drove on motorway near Dunfermline

https://www.dunfermlinepress.com/news/1 ... nfermline/

A TAXI DRIVER was punched repeatedly by a drunk as he drove on the motorway near Dunfermline.

Steven McGrath was apparently unhappy about the route the driver was taking from Kelty to Livingston.

After the assault, the cabbie put McGrath out of the car and was left standing on the hard shoulder.

McGrath, 32, formerly of Livingston, now of Saunders Street, Kirkcaldy, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court as a result.

He admitted that on December 22, 2018, on the M90 near Dunfermline, he assaulted the cabbie during the course of his employment by punching him on the head repeatedly when he was driving a taxi between Kelty and Livingston.

The court was told McGrath had been drinking heavily and had “taken umbrage” about the route the driver was taking.

Sheriff Alastair Brown asked: “What other way would the driver go? Over the Kincardine Bridge via Knockhill?”

The sheriff imposed a community payback order with 225 hours of unpaid work.

Is any of that relevant? :-k
