PHV Driver Caught On Video Driving Wrong Way Round Portmanteau Square


A London Cabby sitting on the rank outside the Churchill Hotel sat in disbelief as a Private Hire car displaying TfL roundels approached, not only driving the wrong way into Portman Square, but also on the pavement. 

The video, shows the car Volkswagen Sharan as it past by on the pavement opposite the rank. 
The driver told Taxi Leaks he felt comfortable sending the footage to TfL which was clearly shot on his phone, as he'd removed the keys from his ignition first, before grabbing his phone.


I’m ranked on Churchill this clown comes the wrong way down Portman Sq then decides to mount the pavement and continue till he can do a U turn. 
@TfLTPH your putting lives at risk

TfLTPH replied:-
Please confirm the time and date of this incident so I can report the driver of LM64UWW. 
Please also report unsafe driving to the police using this online tool: met.police.uk/ro/report/rti/…


The driver then replied:-
Time & date as posted! You licensed him you report him...
To which TfLTPH answered, Thank you. 

Watch the full video sent to TfL here..click the link below.

So now, (according to TfL) we are not just expected to be  just Taxi drivers, but also the eyes and ears of the police. 
You couldn't make it up!

TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT : 

Meantime, where are the eyes and ears of TfLTPH...???

We might as well be unofficial police officers to go with our unofficial ambulance first response drivers, in fact, why dont we carry a high pressure hose pipe on the roof with a tank of water , and we could also be first response fire units, keep the fire down till the real brigade turn up? We could get a badge to wear , maybe three caps, put on the cap of the emergency we are dealing with, and just add the cost of the watertank and hose, medical kit and handcuffs, on to the price of the new electric taxi! We would be the envy of the taxi trade around the world!
