Taxi driver idling while taking a break

Reported anonymously at 00:21, Tue 24 November 2020

A taxi driver was making orange squash in his taxi but running his engine. I politely asked him please to turn off the engine while he was waiting/taking a break. He became hostile with me, asking me if I knew what his vehicle emissions readings were. I pointed to a green sign telling drivers to cut their engine. I reminded him that it is illegal to idle in Westminater. When I photographed the vehicle registration, the driver got out of the taxi and came towards me trying to take my photo. He was trying to intimidate me.
