Southampton Taxi drivers think traffic lights and rules of the road do not apply in the early hours. I had one full of passengers. Near the solent university in town go through a red light and nearly collided with me. Got out and did an eppy on him. Not the first time i have seen them do this and made a complaint to the council licence department.

Non British? I assume you have asked them for their passports.

Not sure why you felt the need to bring race into it.

Have a look round and see the foreign taxi drivers in Southampton most of them do not know where they are going when you ask them, a lot only speak pigeon english and do not know the rules of british driving. Go and get out from behind your computer screens and have a look, i saw one reverse into a three point turn in above bar knock a old bloke down carrying his shopping he then parked his taxi then go and chat to his fellow foreign drivers not a clue.

moped riders are a law unto themselves. CBT for 2 years makes them king of the road. All Bikers should be made to take there FULL TEST before being allowed to ride.
