CCTV to be installed in taxis!
CCTV security cameras are set to be installed into all Abu Dhabi Taxis by 2016.
Taxi drivers in the region are all for the idea saying that having a monitoring system will make their job easier.
A very common problem at the moment involves customers complaining and the taxi driver being fined, when in fact the driver has done nothing wrong.
The cameras are there to reduce this issue, and to also detect abusive behaviour from customers to the driver
The camera’s main aim is to detect passengers who leave without paying, currently nothing can be done with these people if they are not caught after leaving. The CCTV will be able to catch these passengers.
