Dangers of Unlicensed Minicabs
Taxis that operate illegally are not monitored by or answerable to anyone, therefore there are no guarantees for passenger safety. Unlike licensed taxis, illegal minicabs may not be roadworthy and people traveling in one would not be insured in the event of an accident.
As they tend to operate in areas where they know passengers will be desperate for a cab, they may charge random and excessive fares because the passenger might be too drunk, tired, or by this point, worried, to argue.
A common scenario occurs where a clubber falls out into the night, fuzzy-headed and desperate to get home. They may not know where the nearest taxi rank is and public transport will have stopped. Up pulls an unlicensed minicab and it seems like a good idea to hop in. However, often the driver does not know where they are going or may drive the long way just to charge the passenger more. They may drive dangerously, and finally charge a ridiculous amount for what should have been a short and simple journey. Unwitting passengers often feel threatened or sometimes are actually threatened by the driver into paying just so that they can get away. Is this what you want from a cab journey? The responsibility falls on all of us to be aware of how and with whom we travel, and to squeeze out the unlicensed minicab drivers.
It is thought that men take unlicensed minicabs because they do not consider the danger, while women choose them as the lesser of two evils. Women tend to take illegal minicabs to avoid the potential dangers of walking home alone late at night, not realizing that riding in an unlicensed taxi is an equal threat.
Always look for the cab licence number, phone number printed on the side, and discs in the front and back windows to see if it the minicab that you ordered. If you didn’t order one, don’t get in it; even if it is a licensed minicab. They should not be touting for business off the street.
