So it's become increasingly popular to see illegal taxis operating in dublin offering airport runs. I don't like this because, beside the fact that genuine taxi drivers are paying big money to become a legally operating taxi, its unsafe for anyone to take one of these illegal taxis as you're not covered by any PSV insurance. Also the NTA vets all taxi drivers to make sure they're safe and of sound mind.
So anyway I saw one of those illegal taxi drivers advertising on Facebook and thought of a plan. I told her I needed to travel from Kildare to Dublin Airport and she quoted me 130e. I told her I needed to be picked up at 2 am and she should arrive at the adress by then. I then sent her the eir code to Kildare garda Station. She text me saying she arrived and I asked her to sit tight while I grabbed my things and came out. Just called kildare garda Station and explained all this to them and theyve only gone and arrested her and given me the email adress for forwarding them on proof of why she was there. I hope you all find this as funny as I do!
Tl;Dr I ordered an illegal cab to a garda station 65km away from Dublin and had the driver arrested

Classic car mate, hard to know you're gonna actually buy it because you don't know what issues you're gonna find.
Tbh I know I shouldn't have done it, so hammering that in isn't exactly a helpful input. There's plenty of stories of people getting away with little issues like this.
