A taxi driver called police after his lovemaking passengers refused to pay their fare.

A man, 27, and a woman, 31, took a taxi from Rosemont to Orland Park in Illinois, and during the ride, the pair had sex in the car.

However, when they reached their destination they refused to pay the taxi fare.

The driver called police when the two, whom he picked up outside a Rosemont bar, would not pay the $83 fee.

The cab driver told police that the intoxicated lovebirds had removed most of their clothes and had sex in the back seat during the 40 minute trip.

When police responded to the 15500 block of Sunset Ridge Drive, they found the couple’s clothes scattered throughout the cab.

Rather than face arrest, the 27-year-old finally agreed to cover the bill using his mother’s credit card, before leaving his 31-year-old date to find her own way home.

Police said that they took the woman to the police station, where her brother picked her up.

She was from Elgin, about an hour drive from Orland Park.
