London's taxi drivers are the cleanest and friendliest in the world, and London cabbies have the best knowledge of their area, and are the safest drivers.
So says a new poll of more than 2,600 respondents from 30 countries, which put the London capital’s Black Cab at the top of a global list in five out of seven categories.
Unsurprisingly, London's black cabs didn't make the top spot for value for money but then at £65 for the new TXe, expenses do reflect in the meter price .
The cities of New York and Bangkok came joint first for lowest fares - and New York’s famous yellow taxis also grabbed the top spot when it came to availability ( mainly because their business has been devastated by a plethora of ride share apps which passengers seem to have become addicted to.
The Hotels.com survey also revealed strange objects left behind in cab, which included a wig and a bird in a cage left behind in a US cab; a prosthetic leg left in an Australian taxi and a set of dentures in Germany.
Globally, the survey found that people tend to text or email while in a cab (19 per cent), while sleeping was the second most popular activity (15 per cent), followed by eating (10 per cent) and kissing (9 per cent).
In this new survey from Hotel.com Britons famous black cabs were also voted to be the safest, cleanest and have the best knowledge about their city...bought about by the extensive training program known as The Knowledge of London.

Emphatic, Undeniable, Irrefutable
It’s rapists that cause ‘Rape’.
Unverified Uber drivers cause UberRape, have no doubt UberRape is real...
That sexual predators would use the Uber platform isn’t shocking!!!
What’s shocking, is that TfL knew about the problem and suppressed the figures from the public until forced to publish them after legal action taken by the UCG.
Facilitators of UberRape are just as much to blame as the predator rapists.
Being drunk isn’t a crime
Flirting isn’t a crime
Wearing short skirts isn’t a crime
