  • Description

    Because of the high incidence of robberies and attacks on Chicago taxi-cab drivers a law has ben introduced which has made it compulsory for a protective bullet-proof glass to be installed between the drivers and back seats. The law came into forces at midnight on Monday (August 31).

    Although the shield is for the Drivers' protection, it has not met with their entire approval. Driver reaction so far has ben reserved.

    Questioned about how the average Chicago taxi driver feels about his enforced protection, one driver was anything but enthusiastic.

    Believe in it or not, the taxi drivers' union says it will next ask for automatic door locks to be fitted by law so that potential robbers can be locked in the passenger compartment behind the bullet-proof glass and driven to the nearest police station.
