Translating Research Into Policy: The Case of Cardiff Taxi Drivers

Martha Jane Smith, Wichita State University

ABSTRACT
Research on taxi drivers in Cardiff has found that drivers use a number of different types of informal techniques to protect themselves from becoming crime victims. This research on practice has involved constructing both crime and prevention scripts. The aim of the research has been to provide information that will aid both long-time drivers and those entering the field, as well as providing policy makers with insights into the complex situations that drivers face everyday.
