All taxis could have CCTV installed to help safeguard unaccompanied children and protect drivers from false accusations.
Birmingham City Council are considering fitting the cameras in every taxi licensed by the council.
Councillor Des Flood (Con Bartley Green) welcomed the plans, saying it is a 'positive step' for taxi users.
Taxi drivers play an important role in keeping an eye on the children in the community. The installation of CCTV cameras will also support taxi drivers against false allegations.
We need to raise the bar for safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults using transport services.
