Uber recommendations a ‘cop-out’: taxis

Taxi Council Queensland has labelled the recommendations from a Queensland parliamentary committee on the new ride-sharing laws a “cop-out.”

The committee made 16 recommendations for the new legislation, including that ride-sharing services such as Uber won’t have to have cameras installed, with that measure to be reviewed after 18 months of the new laws being in effect.

Taxi Council CEO Benjamin Wash accused the state government of delaying the decision on cameras until after the next election.

“Waiting 18 months before insisting on security cameras in all vehicles is irresponsible and clearly an attempt to pander to ride-sourcing companies who don’t care about customer safety,” Mr Wash said.
