In addition, because they serve as physical barriers that help prevent mugging, SHINKOLITE acrylic partitions can ensure the safety of both chauffeurs and passengers. “A new challenge for taxi drivers during the COVID-19 pandemic is that they need to adapt to the new normal and implement additional safety measures, which include mandatory face masks while on duty. Furthermore, to provide assurance to passengers, SHINKOLITE acrylic partitions have been installed to shield them from the drivers. Because the clear acrylic partition is the perfect size and, once installed, can be removed very easily, it has garnered positive feedback from taxi drivers. What’s interesting is that the invention also helps prevent robbery and protect your property,” statedMr.Kitichai Woramongkholchai, President of Golden Yellow Taxi Cooperative.
