the world's fastest taxi?

from the bbc:

Taxi driver's 420mph speed ticket

A taxi driver has been given a speeding ticket for allegedly driving at 420mph (676km/h) on a city street.

Tom Matthews was photographed while carrying a fare in his 12-year-old diesel Vauxhall Cavalier in Newport.

When a notice of the £60 fine and three penalty points arrived, it said he was clocked at 420mph in a 30mph zone.

Mid and South Wales Safety Camera Partnership apologised and said the mistake was made by an employee rather than roadside equipment.
