Security USA Plans Safety Summit for NYC Livery Drivers

An unfortunate fact of life for New York City livery drivers is that you really have no idea who is getting into your back seat, which means that you can be pulling over to admit a violent criminal.  Too many of our taxi drivers re being subjected to robberies and other violent attacks in the course of their work, and they are given little or no training on how to protect themselves and their property.

Clark Pena, of Security USA, Inc. speaks of the upcoming livery driver security summit and explains that outfitting the vehicle with basic safety equipment, along with knowing how to behave in the event of an attack can go a long way toward avoiding an attack, or helping to find the perpetrator in the event an attack does occur.  Taxi drivers are a critical part of New York City's infrastructure and culture, yet they are among the most vulnerable of our citizens due to the nature of their work.

Some of the strategies that livery drivers can expect to learn at the safety and security summit hosted by Security USA include handing over your valuables without a fight in the event of a robbery, and using the rear view mirror to get a good look at the appearance of every passenger when they enter the cab so you can describe them later, should they commit a crime against you.  Being able to provide a detailed description of a perpetrator may be the most important thing a livery driver who has been victimized can do to help law enforcement find their attacker.
