City to Test Black Box Recorders In Taxis

June 3, 2015 | Liam Mathews

On Tuesday, the Taxi & Limousine Commission announced a pilot program to monitor taxi movements using airplane-style black box recorders, the New York Daily News reports. The recorders, which will be installed in 12 cabs to start, will track speeding, acceleration, hard-braking and abrupt turns. Some cabs will also have cameras. The program is part of the Vision Zero traffic safety initiative.
