Black Cab Passenger Hurls Racist Abuse At Driver Before Dodging Fare
One taxi driver was subjected to horrible abuse after his passenger shouted obscenities through the window at him.
Not only did the male passenger racially abuse him, he also dodged the taxi fare by climbing out of the window.
The incident took place on King’s Road, Chelsea, west London, with the passenger also kicking the cab after refusing to pay up.
As he leaves, the footage shows him saying ‘Your mother’s a Paki, you cunt’ through the window.
According to police, the incident took place on March 22 last year, but the driver has just released the footage on YouTube in a bid to ‘name and shame’ the man.
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said:
The victim, a licensed black cab driver, had picked up a man in Camberwell New Road at approximately 1.15am.
A short while later the man started to shout at the driver; the driver eventually stopped the cab in King’s Road, Chelsea, at around 1.30am and asked the man to pay his fare and leave.
The man refused and shouted further abuse, some of a racial nature. He then climbed out of the window of the cab, spat and kicked the vehicle before making off.
Police have asked anyone with information to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
