ubiCabs survey into the habits of Londoners when it comes to illegal minicabs revealed some concerning truths. Such was the concern, in fact, that we had to create a Christmassy infographic to soften the blow.
Anyway, research carried out for ubiCabs by YouGov this year shows that almost 1 in 4 Londoners (a mighty 24%) have knowingly taken illegal minicabs. That means they’ve hopped in illegal minicabs that weren’t pre-booked, or that weren’t even cabs. Not only does this mean that their driver may not be registered, or even a decent human being, it also means that their journey is uninsured. The risks are enormous, so who’s doing it and why?
