Boris has clearly been caught short of a few bob on the long, late night cab ride home. Today, he announced a trial period allowing cab drivers to stop on red routes, in the wee hours, to enable their fares to visit the ATM and pick up cash for their fare, having inadvisably squandered it on that last round of drinks. This move is to improve passenger safety and to help get us home zippily leaving one happy cab driver, paid up and probably over tipped for the joy of getting home without driving round the houses looking for one of those Link machines that charge £1.75 for the pleasure of withdrawing your own money.
