This is the shocking moment an impatient taxi driver in Solihull risked the lives of pedestrians and bin men by driving on the footpath.
The footage was captured by a CCTV camera fitted on a bin wagon and then passed to officers at West Midlands Police.
The taxi driver was found guilty of driving without due care and attention after appearing in court and ordered to attend a driver improvement programme.
A West Midlands Police spokesman said more and more incidents of this nature were taking place in Solihull.
All bin lorries owned by Solihull Borough Council are now fitted with 360 degree cameras to record incidents of dangerous driving.
Sergeant Luke Prescott, from Solihull Police, said “We’re aware refuse collectors are being regularly put at risk by impatient drivers who are unwilling to wait for just a few short moments.
"They either drive past bin lorries at speed or mount pavements causing a huge risk to pedestrians and bin staff.
"This has become such an issue that Solihull bin wagons are now all fitted with 360 degree cameras to record the behaviour of drivers and any dangerous driving is reported to police. It’s just not worth the risk."
A petition calling for Erewash cabbies to be allowed to have fully-tinted windows in their taxis has been rejected over fears that vehicles could be used to enable the abuse of vulnerable children and adults.
