Decision date set for CCTV in Rotherham taxis

Rotherham council will decide whether or not to make taxis in the town install CCTV cameras on June 29.

The proposal has sparked an angry response from black cab drivers in Rotherham saying that ‘costs’ and an ‘invasion of privacy’ will be a problem.

  1. Why are the black cab drivers of Rotherham against this scheme. If they have nothing to hide then why should they object. Invasion of privacy, whose privacy, theirs? Afraid it might show the truth about the abuse carried out by taxi drivers. These are the actions of extremely guilty men and any taxi driver found to object against this scheme should and must lose their licence and NEVER get it back. Their abuse must be stopped somehow!!
