Two women who got into the back of an unlicensed taxi as part of an ITV investigation said people do it because they're a lot cheaper than licensed cabs.
ITV placed hidden cameras into an ordinary car in Birmingham City Centre to see whether anyone would choose to travel home after a night out in an illegal taxi.
The investigation revealed that many women are still taking risks by using unlicensed cabs.
