I would like it to be made law that ALL taxis in the uk have to be fitted with a dash camera facing out onto the road which can not be switched off unless they are not on shift To protect both drivers on the road and also passengers that travel in form of public transport in their taxis 

This will help identify and solve many crashes and many dangerous acts of taxi drivers where accidents occur. Without this many cases such as one i was involved in can not be solved without witnesses and also that vital proof. 

 

I was recently involved in a car accident when  i was traveling in a taxi. I was lucky to be able for me and my unborn child to have survived it. He wasn't concentrating on the road at all and was also speeding. 

This caused him to crash into the middle of a roundabout near the busy m6 whilst in the middle of the roundabout somehow the car turned went over another side of the roundabout over the grass verg and partly over a metal barrier it then crashed into a tree and i managed to get out of the car and a passerby called an ambulance and police ect.

Ambulance, police, fire service, emergency doctor and highways have no idea how this taxi driver got to where he did. 

The taxi driver claimed it was because of his breaks on his new car (it was a 14 plate) it was clear it was not his breaks but he could NOT be proccucuted unless there was any dash cam footage or cameras near the scene which there was not. 

I am a pregnant lady and this has traumatised me and left me in alot of pain. it is important that taxis have to be fitted with a dash cam for everyones safety so if anyone does get hurt as a result of a taxi drivers actions then the footage of the dash cam in the taxi could maybe provide enough evidence to proccucute the person who's fault it was if an accident occurred.

please sign this petition to try and help get enough signatures to make it law for taxis to have dash cams in there car. 

 

Thank you
