The Role of Taxicab Security Equipment in Preventing Driver Homicides Examined in New Study

A new study from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) examines the effectiveness of specific safety equipment in reducing murder rates among taxi cab drivers, who face a high risk of being the victim of workplace homicide. While many cities and companies have made efforts to improve taxicab driver safety through the use of security equipment, such as in-vehicle cameras and partitions, the research into the effectiveness of these efforts has been limited. This study, newly published by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, found that the installation of in-vehicle security cameras resulted in a significant drop in the rate of driver homicides.
