A TAXI driver locked up after giving a false name when he was caught speeding, has failed in an Appeal Court bid for freedom.

Zahid Arif (25), of Renway Road, Broom, was clocked doing 38mph in a 30mph speed zone on July 26 last year, Mrs Justice Thirlwall told the London court.

But when the penalty notice was sent to the father-of-one he returned the form with a fictitious name, Imran Khan, and an address in Bradford.

After making enquiries with Barnsley Taxi Licencing, it was found that Zahid was working at the time of the offence.

    Hopefully the Licensing staff have revoked his taxi licence for life ! Mind you he will probably apply to Rossendale so he can re-join his dodgy mates who hang around The Homestead pub all day !

        T. No ones against legal taxis registered in Rotherham it’s the 1s registering elsewhere working in Rotherham and the 1s raping and grooming young girls , you sound a very nice person ….

  2. All travellers should look for or ask for the cameras whereabouts. If the car does not have one –
    has it got insurance does the driver have a licence, is the car serviced or MOT’D…?

          No…..just use your initiative and you’ll find local operators who are indigenous . Alternatively, buy a bike or find out what your feet are for…..and I don’t mean putting in your mouth. Personally, I’d walk blindfold before I’d patronise these people.
