The article reports on the need to install security video strategies in any transport station to prevent terrorists' threats. Transit companies install a transportation video surveillance system where it includes a mobile storage that digitally records every event in the transit terminal. This move was initiated due to the advisory of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that transit security videos caught suspicious people videotaping transit facilities in European locations.
