IS IT LEGAL FOR TAXI DRIVERS TO MOUNT CAMERA INWARDS FACING PASSENGERS?

Dear editor

I would like to know if it is legal for Taxi drivers to mount 2 way cameras in their cabs.

The in-ward facing camera has a direct view of the passenger seat at the back

I would like to look for this driver name Mr XXX from trans-cab. I travelled on his cab from Bedok North to IMM Jurong East, boarded on 12.50pm, reached Jurong at 1.25pm on 27th June 2015.

As he has mounted a two way camera in his taxi and it’s has a direct view of the passenger seat in the back and I asked him was it legal in the taxi and he’s said it’s LTA approved and I took a picture of camera as for reference.

Asked for cab receipt was not given trying to hunt the driver down and get some clarification and answers .

Is it legal for taxi drivers to mount cameras facing their passengers?
