Preventing Violence against Taxi and For-Hire Drivers
Taxi drivers are over 20 times more likely to be murdered on the job than other
workers. By recognizing the hazards that lead to violent incidents and using proven
prevention and control measures, employers and drivers can create safer working
conditions.

For-hire and taxi driver homicides
The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) data indicates that annual homicide rates for taxi drivers (and chauffeurs) from 1998 to 2007 ranged from 9 per 100,000 workers, to 19. During that period the rate for all workers was at or below 0.5 per 100,000 workers. In other words, taxi drivers’ homicide rates were between 21 and 33 times higher than the national average for all workers.
