Why do taxi drivers drive off before passengers have fastened their seatbelts?

    This happens practically every time I take a taxi, as soon as the door is closed the driver is off, tonight I struggled fastening the beatbelt and the driver was 100m down the road before I could fasten it

    If a taxi is involved in an accident before a passenger can fasten their seatbelt the passenger could be injured or killed or injure or kill other occupants by being thrown into them

    Surely this is illegal?
