Bangalore Tourist Taxi Operators’ Association president K Radhakrishna Holla said: “The transport department has not consulted us.
Manufacturers should be made responsible for removing child lock if the vehicle is registered as a taxi.”The ministry of road transport and highways has said child locks in all commercial passenger vehicles will be disabled from July 1this year.
If we remove child lock from the existing vehicles, then the owner will be responsible for any technical fallout.
However, it’s often misused and considered a threat, particularly to women passengers travelling in the night.The government has informed the Karnataka high court that notices have been issued to cab aggregators to disengage child locks in taxis.
The government advocate told the court he would place complete details by January 23, the next date of hearing a PIL in the matter.
