Situations like this makes one wonder; how people think they can get away with something so obvious?© Provided by Extra.ie
A taxi was stopped and seized by Gardai this week after they spotted something seriously fishy with the driver and their credentials.
The force’s commercial vehicle unit attempted to check the credentials of the driver when they discovered the person in the front seat wasn’t the registered taxi owner.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1346755235000311809&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fextra.ie%2F2021%2F01%2F10%2Fnews%2Firish-news%2Ftaxi-seized-gardai&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px
It wasn’t just a case of mistaken identity either, as it transpired that the taxi owner was a man, but the driver was a woman!
The force said: ‘The Garda Commercial Vehicle Unit stopped this taxi, where it transpired that the taxi licence did not match the woman driving the car, as it was for a man!
‘The car was seized. Proceedings to follow.’
