Taxi Drivers and Sexual Assault
Most taxi drivers are hard working decent people but there are a number who are predatory and attack women. The Taxi Directorate needs to take action about these drivers. There needs to be training for drivers so that they understand that sexually harrassing women is completely unacceptable. Equally unacceptable is asking for sexual favours for a free taxi trip. A cab is a work place. The usual workplace requirements should apply. Taxi drivers should always behaviour in a respectful and responsible manner to their customers. In cases where that has not happened a new on line presence is being established unsafecabs.wordpress.com. which is acting as a resource for victims to report to police and taxi companies.
