Terrifying footage of a London licensed private hire vehicle travelling on the wrong side of a busy tunnel has been revealed across social media.
The footage shows the driver of a Toyota Prius travelling on the correct side of Rotherhithe tunnel before suddenly veering off to the right hand lane which is used for oncoming traffic.
Seemingly oblivious to the eminent danger of a head-on collision, the car continues to cruise along without a care in the world.
The footage has sparked debate on which operator the driver was working for, with many claiming it was likely an Uber driver.
Twitter user @NoSurrender said: "I'm willing to bet you £1,000 if you like? That's not a privately owned Prius. In the rear window is a green roundel displayed which means it's a private hire vehicle. It also had an iPhone in the front window and I'll bet you it was an Uber."
That tweet was in reply to @ThePlugSeeker who wrote: "Mad and very dangerous driving. But I think you have to reserve judgment about whether it was a Uber driver without evidence, or even any taxi driver. Plenty of privately owned Prius' and lots of use mount iPhone to use as Satnav, I do myself."
Only a week earlier, on 4 December, the same tunnel was closed for hours after another licensed minicab driver from the capital was involved in a horrific collision.
