Video shows passenger spitting at taxi driver
Getting a taxi when you're drunk can be a pain for everyone involved. You do your best to make sense, and the driver does their best to deal with people who are hammered. Most of the time, everything goes without a hitch, save for some heartburn and some bad jokes.
However, things can get ugly pretty quickly, and one video has been released which shows a passenger spitting in the face of the driver who came to pick them up.
The taxi picked some people up outside a pub in Newport, Lincoln.
The dashboard camera captures an argument ensuing, after the driver asked the passengers to close one of the doors.
From that, things escalate very quickly, and while the driver's customer service skills are a bit wayward, there's zero excuse for gobbing in someone's face. The driver is also called a 'pig' in the process.
The incident has been reported to the police, and the passenger who did the spitting has got some explaining to do.
