Cabbie keeps license after knocking down off-duty PC

A cabbie has had a lucky escape after knocking down an off-duty PC in Mayhill Road, Glasgow. 

Javed Lal collided with the policewoman, and despite stopping at the scene of the

accident, failed to share his contact details.

The Evening Times reported that Mr Lal was tracked down after a member of the public took down his registration number and made a report to the police. 

Mr Lal had received 5 points on his license and was fined £160, but had to aubsequently appear in front of Glasgow's licensing committee.

It was revealed the the victim had initially told the cabbie that she was ok, and told him to go.

The incident, which saw Mr Lal arrested in October 2015, led to the licensing committee criticising the cabbies conduct in not reporting the accident.

The committee agreed to renew the cabbies license but warned him about his future conduct.
