I'M writing a letter to ask Trafford Council why nearly every taxi you get into has no idea where you want to go. One taxi driver didn't know where Old Trafford football ground was, another didn't know how to get from Sale to Timperley, another (black cab) didn't know the way from Manchester Airport to Wythenshawe and charged an Australian friend £28!

I thought they had to take a test and pass it, showing that they know the shortest routes and points of interest.

I will look forward to the council's comments.
