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.
