Taxi Council calls on Gov to force Uber to use cameras

THE Queensland Taxi Council have called on the State Government to force Uber drivers to fit security cameras in cars after a 20-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a ride-share driver on the Gold Coast.

The calls come as transport reforms announced yesterday by Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey requiring cameras to be fitted in vehicles with a “certain risk profile” does not cover Uber.

Only vehicles where drivers deal with cash and completely anonymous customers must comply, a spokesman for the minister said yesterday.

On Saturday, the Gold Coast Bulletin on 2nd Oct 2017 revealed a local Uber driver allegedly locked the doors of his car and raped a 20-year-old woman in Surfers Paradise in the early hours of the morning.
