Hi you guys! What do you call the fence that is behind the taxi driver's seat and protects the driver from being robbed? I apologize because the photo in the following link is not very clear.

Your answers will be highly appreciated.

I'd say safety screen, driver shield, drivers cage or something like that. I'm not sure if there's an "official" name.

What Trolley said.

Otherwise, I'd call it a steel (or whatever metal it's made of) partition or grille, security partition or partition screen. Possibly also compartment divider.

I was interested to note that one of the protections offered was to stop a body in the back from flying into the driver in the case of a crash.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.
