An investigation by ITV has revealed many women are still taking risks on nights out by getting into unlicensed cabs to get home.
ITV placed hidden cameras in an ordinary car to see whether anyone would choose to travel home in an illegal taxi.
A number of people chose the unlicensed cab option in Birmingham City Centre because of their cheaper prices.
