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.
