An inexperienced cab driver has been banned for driving for 18 months after travelling the wrong way along the motorway for three miles. The incident occurred on the M6 toll toad near Sutton Coldfield, with Police quickly alerted to the scene by CCTV. Amazingly, there were no collisions after the new taxi driver had taken a wrong turning onto the motorway. The driver did attempt to rectify his mistake by turning across the motorway lanes at a break in the traffic, but his dangerous driving has earnt him an 18 month ban, a 12-month supervision order, and costs of 85 to pay.
Regular taxi users will be relieved to hear that the cab driver had dropped his passengers off before making the incorrect turning!
