All anyone who thinks CCTV is an expensive waste of time, or is merely a nosey bugger in your cab (i.e. the GMB), could they please read the conclusion below a 1000 or more times?

Conclusions
Municipal ordinances and company policies mandating security cameras appear to be highly effective in reducing taxicab driver deaths due to workplace violence.

CCTV won't help reduce something that doesn't exist in my area.

Very impressed.

Could stop it before it starts, but you would never know for certain of course. :roll:

With the amount of crimes shown on CCTV it obviously doesn't deter anyone from committing a crime. It may help identify and catch them later.

But if it is not a deterrent (and it is for some at least), as a minimum it hopefully gets them off the streets for a while.

I beg to differ on that.

When I drove my hackney with CCTV more than once people got in the cab, saw the CCTV and got out. Including a group of ethnic folk who wanted to go miles.

But even if it only helps catch the scum, that will do for me.

Taxicab driver homicide rates were compared in 26 major cities in the U.S. licensing taxicabs with security cameras (n=8); bullet-resistant partitions (n=7); and cities where taxicabs were not equipped with either security cameras or partitions (n=11). News clippings of taxicab driver homicides and the number of licensed taxicabs by city were used to construct taxicab driver homicide rates spanning 15 years (1996–2010). Generalized estimating equations were constructed to model the Poisson-distributed homicide rates on city-specific safety equipment installation status, controlling for city homicide rate and the concurrent decline of homicide rates over time.
