Some 800 taxis in Marbella, Manilva, Estepona, Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Mijas will soon be fitted with a new GPS system by which the drivers will be able to alert their respective offices of any dangerous situations that may arise. Without going into details, a spokesman for the company that manufactures the system said the taxi driver would be able to raise the alarm without the passenger detecting any movement. The drivers welcomed the new system. One said: “Our offices will know where we are at all times, and given the rise in attacks on taxis drivers, it’s good to know we’ll get help very quickly.”
