Just a quick note to all taxi drivers regarding recent attacks on drivers.
The first one 4 am picked up a passenger in Lucan going to Castleknock.
A black youth friendly enough, made a few phone calls en route.
On arrival he asked the driver to stop and said his mate was coming to pay in a second.
2 black youths approached the car and as the driver let down the window he got a punch to the face and the other guy jumped into the back seat and used the seat belt to try and strangle the driver.
Well planned and executed,the driver wil not be winning any beauty contests for a while.
The second time the 3 guys were picked up together, eating chips in the back, quite happy until payment was asked for. same thing punched to the head strangled and robbed Lucan was the area.
Drivers who go through such an ordeal are traumatized and are unable to work for long periods.
If you have any idea who these punks are tell the Garda.
Just be careful out there.
I also hear that "Deep heat" spray can make an excellent anti mugging deterrent.
Or you could use an antiperspirant spray
