Lady Feeling Like a Burden Because of Discourteous Taxi Drivers

Gemma Price was left for dead by her jealous ex-boyfriend who hit her across the head 15 times with a hammer in early 2011. Gemma’s family was making arrangements of her funeral, but after being placed on a life support machine for a month a miracle happens, and she started recovering.

It’s been eight years now, and she is still struggling in her life, she has experienced some incidents where taxis have refused her a ride without reason. According to her, it has happened few times in the previous three months, the latest of them have occurred on 11th January, in Neath, Wales.

Gemma and her partner Shane Jeffreys were out with friends and at 1:30 am they approached a taxi driver who turned them down. Gemma said, “This makes me feel like I am not a part of this society and I don’t want to go out anymore.” The 36-year-old lady prefers a standard car rather than a minibus as she can easily transfer herself into a mini car. After the refusal of the taxi driver, they had to book a minibus to reach home.

Her partner Mr. Shane Jeffreys said: “It has started to happen on a regular basis from previous 6-7 months, we want somebody to sort it out. It’s heart wrecking when after a lovely evening these types of incidents ruin our night”.

The Neath Talbot council spokesman confirmed that they are investigating this incident.

    Unbelievable I’ve been driving a mini cab for over 25 years and never refused anyone with a disability, report these drivers hopefully they’ll lose their licences
