Making taxis safer: managing road risks for taxi drivers, their passengers and other road users

Taking into account the trend of decreased car ownership, especially in urban areas, taxi travel should be at least as safe, and ideally safer than using one’s own vehicle. In order to improve the safety of drivers and passengers, the taxi industry should commit to improving the quality and attractiveness of their services, as well as safety, by increasing the professionalism of drivers and managers. The aim of this report is to give an overview of taxi safety issues across Europe. It will look at ways of managing the risk for taxi drivers and their passengers. The report will cover taxi safety issues in Europe, national and municipal licensing rules, and the main road risks taxi drivers are exposed to. With examples from across Europe, it will encourage taxi operators to apply good practice measures for their drivers and businesses.
