At least we know that he's not a candidate for Mensa. Most people would wait until the cab stopped before choking the driver.

Scary, and dangerous occupation. Wonder if the driver could be isolated in such a fashion to precluded being strangled from the back as this low-life did. Can't remember where but seen cabs with a clear panel separating the driver from the passenger compartment. Appears his sole motive to ride the cab was to rob the driver. Agree with "loquaciousone" the driver could have crashed and injured both driver and himself.

I would have put the metal to the pedal and then slammed into a pole! If he can reach and choke you he must not have had his seat belt on!
