Taxi, bus, minibus and coach
Drivers of public service and private hire vehicles are increasingly coming under attack from passengers.
Whether it’s aggression from drugs or too much alcohol, a passenger who doesn’t intend to pay the fare, or someone intent on robbing the day’s takings the outcome is all-too-often serious.
Female taxi drivers are even more at risk from those who consider them an easy target.
Confrontation may result from a simple request by the driver to fasten seatbelts or to refrain from smoking.
In this instance it’s easy to divorce the driver from the request by using a talking sounder to get the message across.
At the beginning of a journey a message of your choice may be triggered automatically or at the press of a button. The voice is pleasant but authoritative, persuasive and not confrontational.
Messages are available to suit your precise requirements.
Many taxi licensing authorities now require taxis and private hire vehicles to be fitted with CCTV systems.
To satisfy civil liberties requirements taxi drivers are also expected to notify every passenger on every journey that they are being recorded.
So as an effective deterrent a low-cost talking sounder gets the message over every time.
At the push of a button a polite male or female voice informs passengers
“Passengers please note that for safety and security purposes
video recording is in operation in this vehicle.”
Of course in the event of a real attack you want to summon help and deter any further violence.
Aggressive passengers are often cowards who will back off as soon as they are challenged.
At the push of a button the Attack Alarm calls for help and its real human voice cannot be ignored by anyone within earshot.
An optional electronic sounder inside the vehicle serves to confuse and disorientate the assailant who will usually cease the attack and leave as quickly as possible.
Your attacker won’t be expecting an alarm to sound and when it does he will be the one who’s afraid of the consequences.
Systems are available to suit your application and specification.
