A TAXI flipped onto its side after crashing into a central reservation in the early hours of this morning.

The Metro cab flattened the reservation barrier after crashing into it in Turton Street, just outside Bolton town centre.

Firefighters from Bolton Central fire station were called to the incident at about 2am.

They freed one man from the vehicle, and his injuries are not thought to be serious.

Crew manager Richard Henthorne, from Bolton Central fire station, said: "The driver’s injuries could have been more serious.

"Please take care when you are driving and don’t get distracted.”

Yes - as the driver would have been travelling safely within the speed limit, it seems a mystery....!

One registered vehicle, 20 different drivers using one licence.

That's how they manage to undercut other companies.

You are such an expert on things you know nothing about. The vast majority of P/H vehicles in Bolton are owned by single drivers. Only a tiny percentage of vehicles are actually owned by P/H firms such as Metro/Cobra S&D etc.y the way BN this was a Private Hire Vehicle not a Taxi,get it right just once.

Very dubious! It's quite frightening being chauffeured in a taxi these days and sometimes it is not preventable so you are putting your safety in their hands when it should be a safe and reliable journey. Mirror, signal and manoeuvre seem to be lost on more than a minority of drivers and don't get me started on breaking distance! I was in a taxi with my partner travelling up Wigan Rd and the driver careered into the steep kerbing that surrounds the light boxes seperating each side of the road. Luckily nobody was injured though the driver was acting very erratic.

Taxi drivers are responsible for much of the worst driving you will ever see - speeding, unpredictable U-turns, stopping everywhere and anywhere at a second's notice (but slamming their hazard warning lights on, which makes it ok apparently). If you see some bizarre manouvre on the road just check out whether a taxi's involved. It will be.

A vehicle stopping in front of you will not be a hazard unless you are too close. Maybe you are not perfect either.

You wouldn't see them you are far to blinkered. Try making comments on things you actually understand, we wouldn,t hear from you again. I am a P/H driver as I have mentioned on other posts, that is why I wait for proof of what occurred instead of making stereotypical comments in the hope of getting a few thumbs up. What do you do for a living? I would like to slag off all of the people concerned in it just like you do.

Thanks for underlining my point about stereotyping. You are clearly ashamed of what you do (or don't do). May I point out that we have never met and yet you make assumptions as I said before in the hope of getting a few thumbs up to brighten your dreary existance. You clearly see yourself as some sort of keyboard hero, the reality I suspect is somewhat different. Keep to topics you have some knowledge of or shut up.

Donkey, maybe you're one of the very few half decent taxi drivers, who knows. The simple fact readily apparent to anyone with two eyes and even a partial brain is that the vast majority of taxis on the road carry out dangerous, selfish, idiotic and downright illegal manoeuvres day in, day out. Maybe this guy was one of them.

Yes some do, however so do many,many non PH drivers but because they are not covered in stickers they are not really remembered. Statistics suggest that Taxi/PH drivers are among the safest when the number of miles driven per accident is taken into account.

No, it's my road as I drive a 4x4, puny taxis ;)
But seriously, most drivers get bad press because of the few that work for to many hours and become clumsy, they should have a tacho card and restrictions on hours they can drive just like goods vehicle drivers, that way if they do crash then the card can be used as evidence.
I doubt any good driver would refuse that if it lowered the silly high insurance ?

Well done for understanding the stereotype idea. 4X4 drivers, White Van Men, Bus Drivers all get singled out by people of lower than average intelligence.Many drivers work too many hours to pay greedy insurance firms, council fees that are misapropriated, fuel and the general rise in the cost of living which we are all enduring. My point is very simple. All the oh so clever Taxi haters on this forum seem to make assumptions and of course are blind to everything else. Of course they all have unblemished driving records. I repeat a post I made a couple of months ago. I have driven over a million miles over the last 22 years of being a Taxi/PH driver and have a clean driving licence and no claims history at all. How many smart a**e hypocritical people commenting on here can match that record?

I probably know you, we used to do chassis cleaning many years ago for Taxis and PH, also all Bolton councils own trucks and most of the local bus companies.
I wonder how many people would like their family car tested every 6 months and have the underbody cleaned to the point that it has no protection against the winter.
Not to mention the spot checks that can revoke that test and demand a new one + its normal MOT + maybe 6K insurance, the list goes on.
