Petition Details

I would like the government to make it a legal requirement for all taxi drivers to wear a face mask.

Additional Information

I am a carer for vulnerable people in a nursing home and I rely on taxis to work. The taxi drivers are not wearing facemasks and I don't feel safe. I am afraid that I will catch coronavirus from one of them. The drivers can refuse to take someone if they don't wear a mask but yet the driver expects the customer to sit in their car and breathe in their germs. Scientists have already said that face masks protect others from you, so why am I protecting the drivers but they aren't protecting me?
