Just after midnight, in the very early hours of March 18th 2017 I asked the driver of this car to drive the 9 or so miles from Hertford North station to my home in EN6. He quoted £30, which I believed to be excessive but agreed. I only had £20 so asked him to go via a cashpoint. He pointed out that there was a cashpoint machine at the station, so asked me to get out the remaining £10 there and then; which I did. I then got into the car and he demanded the money up front. I showed him the money, as a show of faith, and said that I would pay him on arrival. He said that I must pay him now, before driving an inch. I was down to my last few pounds and felt very nervous about doing this, so I refused. I showed him the money again, declaring that I would pay him but there was no way that I was going to pay for a service he hadn't carried out. In my experience, that's not how these things work. You could argue that drivers have to face the possibility of passengers not paying; but what about us? We could be robbed. I don't feel entirely safe handing over £30 when the driver could just take the money and throw me out of his cab.

He demanded that I get out. I questioned the legality of this and he got very angry. I started walking, hoping to flag down a more reasonable driver. After risking my life walking on dark roads for three hours and nine miles, I arrived home. It was after 3am.

Nothing too serious but lane hopping without indicator, faulty brake light and indicator has a fault as it is very dim - but I can see it when it is being used!

This idiot in the Honda red car which man was in his 30's and is a dangerous driver at 5.05pm on 18/03/17 he very nearly hit our car and the side where my small child was sitting without a care in the world. He tried to push in at a very busy box junction. And nearly took us off the road. What a horrible man. Would name and shame him but pics I have took are not as clear but if I manage to sort them on computer o will put on here to name and shame them!!

Absolutely dreadful driver, he drives into curbs and snaps rims. Also can't drive up driveways.

Jaguar driver, phone to ear, steering one handed down narrow residential street where kids play, dog walkers cross and other drivers come round the bend assuming there isn't an oncoming twat on the phone unable to react.

That Igman is going to get angry at me again, but the driver was a rude woman accompanied by a male who tried to push in front of me because they were in the wrong lane, stopping all of the traffic and it was outright selfish. That's a bit selfish but the rudeness came from shouting at me when I tried to carry on while they were pushing in (NO Indicator until the nose was already inside my wheel arch) - At first I thought it didn't work but after they eventually forced their way in I noticed it working further down the road.
