Swearing taxi driver had no valid driver's or taxi license

The City says the Capital Taxi driver caught on video swearing at a Rideau Centre security guard earlier this month didn't have a valid driver's license.

According to the city, not only was Fawad Karimi's provincial driver's license suspended at the time of the incident, but he had failed to renew his taxicab driver's license, which means he shouldn't have been operating a cab.

The City says By-Law is continuing its investigation into the driver, saying he may be subject to prosecution under the law.

Coventry Connections, the company that operates Capital Taxi, fired Karimi following the incident, saying he had rented out the taxi license from another driver.
