A taxi driver who was stopped by police after dangerously weaving in and out of traffic while travelling way over the speed limit surprised officers with a remarkable response.
Vdeo footage was captured by Merseyside Police’s Roads Policing Unit and published on its Twitter account.
It shows police following the cab as it overtakes and undertakes other cars – and even spends time driving on the wrong side of the road.
The Liverpool Echo reports that the clip was taken on Kensington, an inner-city road with a speed limit of 30mph and the officer’s dashcam shows the driver reaching speeds of 51mph.
But according to the tweet from the Roads Policing Unit, it was the driver’s response that surprised the officers the most.
The team tweeted that after they handed out a caution, the driver responded by stating: “Go 30mph on the cabs you make no money”.
The team’s tweet was responded to by scores of people who said they believe taxi and private hire drivers need to take more care when driving around the city.
