Unfortunately another victim of a s**ual‎ assault by a Uber driver has come forward. The QLD Labor Government remains steadfastly resolute in not allowing the installation of CCTV into any Uber car .A female Queensland Labor Member is on record as saying “It is illogical that all forms of Transport for Passengers have security cameras, trains, busses, taxis” but Uber has not. Why not? The logic is that it is not a good use of money. Is this correct.? There would be a significant Government incentive to remove CCTV from all forms of public transport. This money could then be put to better use by giving all our State politicians a well-deserved pay rise
