Notice to the Industry Regarding Taxicab Safety Cameras:

The date for compliance is fast approaching; you are urged to contact these vendors now in order to select the camera system that best meets your needs and avoid any extra expenditures for expedited services. To facilitate compliance, a schedule for mandatory Safety Camera testing and sealing (1017.72) is also attached below.
