    Wonder why then did a very pleasant taxi driver described his frusration to me as a passenger that the cameras he had paid to have fitted (according to RMBC recommended specification and suppliers) are completely useless at night as they do not have night vision?

    25% of Rotherham Taxis are not registered in Rotherham and 100% of those do not have cameras!
