THREATENED AND FOLLOWED by driver #1677 - At 5:25pm Saturday 01/02/16 taxi # 1677 sped through a red light in front of Lakeside Mall, traveling westbound on Veterans, and missed hitting my car by inches; it was only by slamming on my brakes and severely swerving that I missed a very bad accident. I blew my horn when it happened, blaring it - as I drove away the taxi, which had stopped at the red light in front of Lager's bar, backed up on veterans, pulled behind me, and approached within an inch. My daughter was with me, and I was quite concerned, so I pulled onto Severn, and the taxi followed me within inches. I drove through Fat City and through a neighborhood, but the taxi aggressively pursued me for many minutes, at times touching my bumper. I thought about pulling over, but knew it would escalate, and thought the driver, to be so blatant, might be armed, so I pulled into the Fat City Jeff Parish Sherriff's substation, at which time the driver realized what I was doing and he sped away. I filed a formal complaint with JP Sherriff, giving a cell phone picture of the driver and taxi, and a complete description of the incident. I am filing a formal complaint today with NOLA Taxi Bureau as well. This man's actions were unbelievably dangerous and aggressive.
