A woman has warned people to be careful when talking to taxi drivers, after she had a 'scary' experience during a recent trip. Listen to her story:
Daisy was heading home in a Bolt taxi when she became concerned for her safety after her driver made a series of inappropriate comments and wouldn't leave when she got out of the car.
In a video posted to her TikTok account, the make-up artist explains exactly what happened, telling her followers that the man even said he wanted to take her to view his house.
A tearful Daisy says: "I don't usually come on here like this but I just had a really scary experience with a taxi driver and it's not the first time.
"I just wanted to share my experience because I'm literally so shaky.
"I was just in a taxi coming home and the taxi driver was speaking to me and asked me where I'm from, that's quite common so I just thought it was normal and I told him.
"And then he was like 'Do you live back there or are you going home' and I said I'm going home then I kind of realised afterwards that now he knows that's the area I live in."
Daisy goes on to say that she never really thought twice about answering the question and warned others to be extra vigilant.
She went on: "It's really hard to know if someone is just being polite or not because a lot of taxi drivers do just want to have a nice conversation with you while they're driving.
"So anyway I started to panic because he said he had a house nearby that he was renting out and he could take me there now to go and see it if I wanted to.
"I was, like, 'My friend is waiting for me, I need to go home' and he was like 'Just give me your number then' and because I was panicking I said I'd take his number.
"I took his number and was silent but after a few minutes he was like 'Oh I still haven't got it' and I was like 'Got what?' And he said 'I'm waiting for you to call me so I have your number'."
After getting out of the car, Daisy then rushed up to a stranger and asked if she could stay with them until the driver left.
"I told him I would call him later and then when I got out of the taxi I went up to a random woman and I was like 'Can I just pretend to speak to you while this guy goes away' and he didn't go away for a while," she said.
"She told me he was behind me for a while, I think he was staring at us but I didn't want to look and eventually he left.
"Please be careful out there everyone."
In the comments, Bolt Taxi said: "Hi! We're very sorry to hear about your experience. Our team investigated and took appropriate action."
