It is a legal requirement for drivers to exercise proper control of their vehicle and to ensure that their vision is not obscured. The Official Highway Code advises drivers to avoid distractions.

Local licensing authorities can already require the installation of CCTV in all taxis and private hire vehicles (PHVs) and a number already do so.
