Taxi driver who was caught on camera narrowly missing woman and children at zebra crossing loses lic

A taxi driver from Middlesbrough who narrowly missed running over a woman and young children when he overtook on a zebra crossing has been fined £1,000 and had his licence revoked by Middlesbrough Council. Yaseen Rehman, 45, was caught on camera speeding past a waiting car while a childminder was halfway across the road with the young children she cares for. Rehman was inches from mowing down the pedestrians and appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court to face charges of driving without due care and attention and failing to accord precedence at a crossing.

The incident took place outside of a primary school during the morning of April 24. As reported in TeessideLive, Councillor Julia Rostron said that Middlesbrough Council’s taxi drivers carry out an important public service which demands great responsibility towards passengers and other members of the public. She went on to say that the actions of Rehman left them no choice but to revoke his licence, preventing him from continuing work as a taxi driver. Rehman was fined £880 and ordered to pay costs of £151.
