Only place I can find that corroborates Carr's 80% claim is here, which, lol:

A common scenario occurs where a clubber falls out into the night, fuzzy-headed and desperate to get home. They may not know where the nearest taxi rank is and public transport will have stopped. Up pulls an unlicensed minicab and it seems like a good idea to hop in. However, often the driver does not know where they are going or may drive the long way just to charge the passenger more. They may drive dangerously, and finally charge a ridiculous amount for what should have been a short and simple journey. Unwitting passengers often feel threatened or sometimes are actually threatened by the driver into paying just so that they can get away. Is this what you want from a cab journey? The responsibility falls on all of us to be aware of how and with whom we travel, and to squeeze out the unlicensed minicab drivers.
