    Bloody good news, I'd call it. Congestion in London set to improve, as millions of empty Priuses removed from the streets.

    Just read it too!

    This is really going to change my life. I'm going to have to delete that Uber app I installed 2 years ago but never used.

    I cannot believe they just ****ed up thousands of cabbies that were all relying on UBER for a living...

    I use Uber quite a lot and found it to be the most convenient and cost effective taxi service, not just London but in most European cities as well.

    You could have walked most of that imaginary journey in 40 minutes.
