Ticket inspectors on Prague busses and trams, as well as on metro lines, will begin using audio recording devices to capture on tape dealings with passengers, not least those caught without paying or failing to provide documentation. The head of the city's transit company has said he hoped it would lead to fewer complaints over inspectors' work, adding it would protect passengers as well. A similar system is already in place in České Budějovice and saw a drop of 90 percent in the number of complaints. Inspectors in Prague will begin using the devices over the course of August, Lidové noviny reported; 150 ticket inspectors are currently employed by Prague's transit company.
