A NEW app will help people find a taxi driver who keeps his mouth shut for the entire journey.
The app, called ‘JustDrive’, guarantees a taxi ride free of conversational opening gambits and ludicrous, unsolicited opinions.
JustDrive was developed by former London cabbie Tom Logan after he realised that more than 90 percent of his passengers wanted him to die.
He said: “I lost count of the number of times a passenger would hand over the money and say ‘Thanks, that was absolutely hellish – and, by the way, you’re an idiot’.
“All the drivers who sign up to JustDrive sign a pledge that they will not say a word. They’re not even allowed to say how much the fare is. They have to point at the meter.”
Jane Thompson, from North London, said: “I’ve tried everything from wearing a motorbike helmet to pretending to be Chinese.
“Now, when they ask where I’m from I’ll maybe say something like ‘Nope, fuck off’.
“There was one time I just started crying. But the driver ignored me and carried on talking about how Pakistanis don’t do recycling.”
