Uber ‘dumb’ drivers criticized for parking at busiest roundabout in Nuneaton to drop off HelloFresh workers
Taxi drivers have been called ‘idiots’ for pulling over at Nuneaton’s busiest roundabouts to drop workers off at Hello Fresh.
The daily dangerous maneuver not only causes traffic jams along the A444 each morning and early afternoon, but many fear it could lead to a serious accident.
Councilor Clare Golby, who is the neighborhood representative for the area, was completely stunned when she heard about the actions on Facebook posts.

The shocked Nuneaton and Bedworth Deputy Head of Borough Council has called the drivers “idiots” and is working with the police to put a stop to it.
“I spoke to the local PCSO, who in turn also spoke to Hello Fresh about the issues,” said Cllr Golby.
“It’s completely ridiculous and frankly mind-boggling that cars actually park on the roundabout to pick up and drop off workers.
“No matter what time of day, it’s not free for everyone and the people who do that sort of thing are downright idiots.”
She continued, “It’s not difficult. Exit the roundabout onto a side road before stopping or getting on or off a vehicle.”
What HelloFresh said
CoventryLive has asked HelloFresh for a comment on the situation at the fulfillment center, known as “The Beehive”.
Staff were briefed on the situation and the importance of the impact of getting to work safely.
A spokesperson said: “We have reiterated to our employees that all who work in our distribution center must act in the interests of personal and public safety, including when it comes to commuting to work. . “
