Nottingham taxis protected with CCTV

CCTV cameras must be installed in Nottingham taxis to help stop attacks and abuse being hurled at drivers, according to a community action group.

There have been reports of taxi drivers receiving insults and abuse from passengers and now drivers and the public alike are urging the powers-that-be to do something about it.

Latest figures show that 130 taxi drivers in the Nottingham area reported nearly 2000 abusive or insulting incidents in a week. There were over 160 assaults reported in the same October week. A recent survey also showed that there were nearly 200 damaged taxis in a short space of time and over a thousand threats were made.

Because of this, taxi drivers and the local community are calling for an allocation of £90,000 to be spent on installing the cameras in the taxis as well as in and around the Nottingham area. A private taxi firm in the area has already installed 300 CCTV cameras in its fleet of 450 cars as they look to clamp down on such behaviour. It is hoped by many that the council will follow suit in their taxis.
