Police officers were left ‘amazed’ when the driver of a 65mph speeding taxi, which was late for a school run, was also found to have no insurance.
Staffordshire Police officers were left stunned after noticing the licensed black Skoda Octavia taxi speeding at 65mph along a 50mph road.
When instructed to pull over, it emerged that the taxi was late for a local school run. Officers then discovered the cabbie was not insured to drive the cab. The taxi was instead insured by someone else and not the driver at the time.
The vehicle has now been seized and the driver reported to court and taxi licensing authorities.
Staffordshire Police Roads Policing Unit said via social media: “This Taxi was in a rush to do a school run from a local school, speeding at 65mph through a 50mph zone because he was late.
“Shame he wasn’t as quick to take out an insurance policy on it.
“Seized and reported to court. Some people continue to amaze us!“
