A great deal of work has gone in to finding the right CCTV solution to offer with our range of taxis for sale.
(PRWEB) June 30, 2011
Unfortunately protection from violence against taxi drivers continues to prove a problem for the UK’s hard working cabbies. That’s why leading specialist of taxis for sale, Cab Direct, has joined forces with VUE CCTV and The Selsia Repair Group to provide a national solution for driver safety with their new CabSafe™ onboard CCTV system.
Taxis for Sale - Safety First
Taxi sales specialist Cab Direct’s new CabSafe™ system, provided by VUE CCTV, provides full UK coverage and comes with a 12 month warranty. Plus, unlike many other systems on the market, CabSafe™ has been tested and is proven to work at night – when cabbies are likely to need it most. Best of all is CabSafe’s price – only £395 for a one camera system, or just £645 for three camera protection in a full hackney vehicle.
For added security the unit is tamperproof, encrypted and password protected so footage can only be downloaded by an authorised person. Cabbies also have the option to record audio, optional GPS which integrates with GoogleEarth and an optional monitor.
As part of Cab Direct’s CabSafe™ solution drivers also have access to a national network of approved repairers – The Selsia Accident Group. With more than 60 outlets nationwide, Selsia also offers a free download service in the event of a genuine incident where, with the council’s permission, they will download footage from the camera system for use as evidence.
A New Solution to an Old Problem
There are a number of reasons that make taxi drivers, in particular, vulnerable to attack. The fact that cabbies work alone, often at night, and are known to carry cash makes them an easy target for mindless thugs.
Speaking of the merits of the new system, Bill Parris, Cab Direct’s National Operations Manager, comments: “A great deal of work has gone in to finding the right CCTV solution to offer with our range of taxis for sale. There are a lot of cameras available on the market. However, there’s a real lack of quality when it comes to night vision. It was important for us to find a camera that works at night when cabbies are most vulnerable to attack. VUE’s CabSafe™ system fits the bill perfectly.”
Bill continues: “Research has shown that the installation of in-cab CCTV can lead to a significant reduction in incidents of abuse, threats and violence. In fact, in many cases, the presence of the camera is enough to deter criminals. The quality and price of the CabSafe™ system makes it a smart option for any taxi driver.”
