    If he claims to be a taxi driver will he be immune from prosecution?

      Only if he proves hes a taxi driver by stopping in the middle of the road... On a serious note this guy must get tossed into a dark hole! he doesnt deserve the cushy cell with DSTV and warm food he will most likely get when caught
