This white paper examines road risk facing taxi drivers, in terms of their involvement in collisions compared to other drivers. It is based on the report commissioned in 2014 by DriveTech from Road Safety Analysis. It provides detailed insights into drivers involved in reported injury collisions while driving for work. By comparing this group with all drivers involved in collisions, it is possible to identify distinct patterns.
