Murderous pieces of machinery.

A little quiz.Bob Oddy from the LONDON TAXI DRIVERS ASSOCIATION,the lovely chap he is.Here he goes:
"Those vehicles are a death trap,cause a menance to other road users and should be abandoned atogether.It is only a metter of time before someone is killed.These are murderous pieces of machinery and should not be allowed on the streets"
What is Bob Oddy lamenting about???

"A menace to other road users" is the most inventively over the top way of saying "mildly wearing to be stuck behind and prone to ringing their little bells with irritating frequency" I've ever heard. I dare say they're a great worry to the bonehead in the Metrocab who lurched across three lanes of Marble Arch roundabout without apparently checking his mirrors (not all that near me, but a couple of other cars had to stand on it a bit) earlier on though.

Its a bit wierd that prat of the year thingy.The link to the article is dead,so can't figure out what were the 'allegations'...
Anyway,not only the 24000 of london cab drivers don't like to 'share' the bussiness with few dozen of pedal ricksahaws,but they don't really like to share the road with anyone else seems like.
How is it that getting into a metal box with PCO licence stuck to it makes people feel like they are 'the king of the road'?
