Taxi driver not even pretending to focus on driving

A TAXI driver is no longer even keeping up the pretence that he is concentrating on driving two tons of car and is busy doing other things. 

Licenced cab driver Wayne Hayes spent the journey texting, Tweeting, holding a radio conversation, absent-mindedly flicking through some kind of documentation, ogling women and reeling off a long story about his dispute with the council.

He admitted: “I like driving, but it gets tedious after a while. And I’m doing it all day.

“So I’ve cut out stuff like checking mirrors, indicating and braking early so I can fit in more phone calls, loudly agreeing with callers into Nigel Farage on LBC, and eating pork scratchings.”

Pedestrian Julian Cook said: “The taxi stopped within inches of me at a zebra crossing and the driver looked completely nonplussed.

“When I looked closely, he appeared to be chopping an onion.”
