Charlene Beal, pictured above, became violent after she argued with Zubair Khan over the fare and then claimed he sexually assaulted her and exposed himself.
The 50-year-old cabbie was arrested and held in a police cell for several hours before police discovered he was innocent.
Jailing Beal, 27, for 19 months and her then partner Lisa McGuire, 26, for 11 months, a judge told them: "It was a wicked thing to do to accuse that man of what you accused him of.
"Lawyers acting for alleged victims of sex offences, he said, are entitled to say: "Read your newspapers, members of the jury, women make things up."
Recorder Cairns Nelson QC added: "You should hang your heads in shame."
Maidstone Crown Court heard Mr Khan had picked up Beal and McGuire in the early hours of February 19 at the River Tavern in Strood.
Neil Sandys, prosecuting, said Mr Khan, who was working for a Gillingham taxi firm, told the women the fare to Maidstone would be £30.
After Beal argued the fare should be £22.50, the cabbie asked for the cash up front.
Beal handed over £20 and said the rest would be paid when they arrived at their destination.
Mr Sandys said when they arrived in the town centre Beal and McGuire wanted to go further. Mr Khan said he would not take them anywhere until they had paid.
A struggle then ensued.
"Mr Khan was shocked and scared," said Mr Sandys. "From then on the incident escalated very quickly indeed."
About £750 worth of damage was caused to the dashboard, radio and meter equipment.
Mr Khan managed to get out of the cab but his mobile phone was thrown in the road. As he bent down to get it, he was pushed over. Beal kicked him in the legs.
She then made a 999 call in which she said Mr Khan had either attempted to rape her or sexually assault her.
Beal admitted perverting the course of justice and damaging property.
Beal also admitted assaulting Mr Khan and a public order offence.
Mary Jacobson, for McGuire, said her client played little part in the allegation of indecent exposure. “She was literally a back seat passenger,” she said.
“This was simply meant to be a fun night out which went dramatically wrong for all parties involved. She and Miss Beal were partners at the time. They have since moved on to new partners.”
Timothy Banks, for Beal, said his client knew there was no truth in her allegations against Mr Khan and that he was entirely innocent.
“She was struggling with alcohol addiction,” he said. “It is a disgraceful incident.”
Beal worked as a school dinner lady but it came to an end when checks were made and her criminal record was discovered.
“She knows what she has done was close to wicked,” added Mr Banks.
Cabbie Zubair Khan said afterwards he was pleased with the sentence but would have liked to have seen the two women get at least two years jail.
"I think as they have admitted what they did the sentence is OK. If they had been given two years it would have been better."

US court denies parents custody of Hitler and sisters
A US appeals court has ruled a couple who gave their children Nazi-inspired names should not regain custody, citing the risk of serious injury to them.
Adolf Hitler Campbell, 4, and his sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, 3, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie, 2, were taken from their New Jersey home in 2009.
The case first came to public attention in December 2008 after a shop refused to decorate a birthday cake for Adolf.
A family court had earlier found there was insufficient evidence of abuse.
But on Thursday, the appeals panel determined that social workers had proved the need for protective services for the three children.
The panel found that the parents, who both suffer from unspecified physical and psychological disabilities, had "recklessly created a risk of serious injury to their children by failing to protect the children from harm and failing to acknowledge and treat their disabilities".
The judges also noted that Deborah Campbell had recently passed a letter to a neighbour saying her husband had threatened "to have me killed or kill me himself".
The children's father, Heath Campbell, told the Associated Press last year that he believed they were taken into foster care because of their names.
He also alleged that the authorities had relied on unproven accusations made by a neighbour and his ex-wife.
