On the taxi rank outside Nobu.
I just arrived and didn’t have time to straighten up properly on the rank, when this car parked behind me so I got out and tapped on his window, no response, thats when I took a picture of his reg no.
Then he got out thats when I realised he was a traffic warden ,he was wearing a blue uniform with the name warden written on his shoulder,unfortunately I didn’t get his number. He didn’t say anything he just started to walk around the back of his car, thats when he said without looking or turning Arshole ! I said what did you say and he repeated him self and continued to walk away.I didn’t respond because I was shocked to what he said.
The cab that was behind me look on in amazement to what was going on.
Now I had to move up on the rank because there was a cab behind me and a space infront, so know I’m on point.
Someone walks over to my window, he asks how much to Harrow, I gave him a price,he gets in, as I did a u-turn. So know I’m facing Berkeley Sq and a embassy police car was just passing in the opposite direction. I cought their attention and they stopped, so I told them what had just happened, they said they will make a note and report it.
I pulled up a bit further to get level with the wardens car and take another picture.
My passenger was sympathetic with me, as he saw what happened, so he didn’t mind me stopping to take a picture.
I tell you something the whole incident shook me up. When talking about what happened to my passenger it calmed me down a bit, by the time I dropped him off I was a lot calmer but still angry.
On my way to Nobu.
While driving down New bond I was just about to turn right into Bruton st, when this car came thundering around the corner just missing me and nearly ploughing into another cab.
Just to explain to people that don’t know this part of the world. New bond st is a one way st. This sort of incident takes place in London frequently. It was only a couple of hours previously when another driver on Twitter announced that while driving up a one way street he came head on with a coach a 4×4 and another car. people just don’t read the sign posts and road markings.
