Taxi driver with 10 points on licence caught doing 92mph on M65

A taxi driver has been caught speeding in excess of 90mph on the M65 despite a downpour of rain. The motorist had two fares in the back of the vehicle while reaching a speed of 92mph in Burnley.

Police have today (June 30) slammed the driver for the 'disgraceful' incident, pointing out he already had ten points on his licence for speeding offences.

Officers said he had 'not learnt' his lesson and reported him for summons.

A spokesperson for Lancs Road Police said: "This taxi was stopped in Burnley having been followed doing 92mph on the M65 in the rain.

"Disgracefully he had two fares in the back and to make things worse he already has 10 points for speeding offences!

"Lesson clearly not learned so reported for summons."

Not unusual for a PH driver to do that speed on a busy saturday night racing to their next job but with passengers on board ?

Hopefully he will now be an ex pirate hire :wink:

Not if you are on 10 points.
