Private hire drivers take risks every time they sit in their cars, start their engines and pick up their next fare. It is time that we acted and show our concern as a community by finding more ways to help keep them safe whilst they provide this vital service to the community.
With this in mind Cab Safe introduced a range of security products and services for the Private Hire Drivers within the UK. Cab Safe launched its first safety product in June 2008, which was a safety screen manufactured from a transparent polycarbonate material and produced for each individual vehicle.
The screen is fitted between the front and rear passenger area of the vehicle. These screens are currently in use in four major countries within Europe. The screen is fully tested for crash worthiness and complies to 2000/4/EC regulation, the typical requirement for an original equipment type approval covering Interior Fittings.
The protection screens are designed and manufactured in Spain, and comply with the Spanish Motor Industry safety testing and approval requirements, with certifications for each screen type available upon request. The safety testing conducted by the manufacturer in Spain has also been verified by the Motor Industry Research Association (MIRA) in the UK.
