One for all you cab drivers ... 'Just a tap on the shoulder.'

A passenger in a taxi leaned over to ask the driver a question and tapped him on the shoulder.

The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the kerb, and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window.

For a few moments everything was silent in the cab, and then the still shaking driver said, 'I'm sorry, but you scared the daylights out of me.'

The frightened passenger apologised to the driver and said he didn't realize a mere tap on the shoulder could frighten him so much.

The driver replied, 'No, no, I'm sorry, it's entirely my fault. Today is my first day driving a cab...................

I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years.'

Now there is something else to scare the living daylights out of Cab Drivers ... but this time there is no tap on the shoulder.

It is altogether more sinister and dangerous. Driver behaviour is being altered to the point of distraction ... watching for cameras, speed guns, Civil Enforcement Officers noting vehicle registration numbers.

And the consequences are severe ... £120 through the post. How many will you get?

You will dread going home at the end of a good day just in case there is a ghost in the post ... the stealth tax ticket lying on the mat. Do you pay or do you challenge.

Spread the word ... we have the solutions ...
