Sleeping in cab costs $75 a night
A London cabbie has turned his taxi into an Olympic hotel for the duration of the games, charging $75 a night per guest.
While the mess of traffic in the British capital has forced some cabbies to consider leaving the city until the games are over, David Weekes decided to take advantage of the hustle and bustle and overpriced, oversold hotels.
When Weekes wraps up driving for the day and parks his London Taxi TX4 in his driveway, he's not through taking fares, reports CNN.
It's then the cab becomes a $75-a-night one-person hotel room, outfitted with a mattress and bedding, alarm clock and a Paddington Bear.
Need to use the bathroom? Just knock on the door of his house.
Weekes has had two people spend the night in the taxi so far, and has another four reservations booked. He's hoping the money'll help make up for the fares he might lose during the games.
