  • Description

    Some of the imaginative gadgets of a James Bond movie have now become realities. And they promise to foil attacks or robberies against New York City taxi drivers. This cab is described as "stick up" proof. It was demonstrated Wednesday, August 25th by the Checkers Motors Corporation. By pressing a button below the dashboard, the driver can perform these manoeuvres.

    Raise a bullet proof glass partition between the front and back seat.

    Release a cash drawer on a pivot to receive his fare and make change without being exposed to a knife or gun.

    Close and lock all windows and doors.

    Start a flashing amber light on the rooftop to attract the police.

    The new taxi cab, called "safe guard", also features armoured plate reinforcing along the back of the driver;s seat.
